What kind of loser makes fun of people who care about making the world a kinder place?! Our best advice is to be firm, stay strong, and be clear that you care a lot about these issues. Ask them why they think that making animals suffer is acceptable when there are so many cruelty-free options, from food to clothing to any other part of life! Any initial resistance you meet will certainly fade away as others realize you are serious about such a positive issue. Encourage others to visit Meat.org or peta2.com if they have any questions and want to see for themselves how horribly animals are abused.
