    Does anyone have a person who really wants to become friends with you, but every time you mention something like “Im veg” or “I hate fur” They start talking about the yumminess of bacon or the funny-ness of animals being skinned alive? Theres this girl I know and she wants to be my best friend, but as I was telling my friend the horrors of fur and how they get snake skin, the other girl (Lets call her sally) Sally was like “Lol if I saw that happen to a snake I would just laugh”. How do you handle people like her??? I really don’t want to be rude and say “You can’t be my friend” (I’ve never done that before. If someone wants to be my friend, I let them make an effort)

    Please help me, I can be to nice :(

    first, I would ask her how she could be so cruel to laugh at the suffering of a living creature, and encourage her to learn more about a subject before she starts opening her mouth about it, and if she still refuses to hear it, then i’d politely explain to her that these issues are something you are extremely passionate about, and while you don’t expect her to feel the same (even as much as you’d like her to!) if she cannot care so much as to respect your beliefs, then you guys can’t be friends. i mean, even if it weren’t about animal rights, would you want to be friends with someone who doesn’t respect your other morals or values? i know i wouldn’t.

    Let’s put her theory to the test. Show her videos showing what happens when animals are skinned for clothing. She won’t be laughing out loud.

    Hey all,

    I used to be that person that made fun of vegetarians (I know, I sucked!), but now I’m vegan and work for peta2! So that just shows that people can change. :) Check out our super easy guide to help you veganize your friends: http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle/veganize-your-friends-in-three-easy-steps/.
