Hi Kate! Welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
You COULD do what Nigel suggests and ignore them. Or, you could follow the advice I give in the following thread: <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showpost.php?p=1391458&postcount=1" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...58&postcount=1</a><br><br><br><br>
and bring something vegetarian to share with them. Let them know that vegetarian food is real food, and nothing to be scared of. And you are nothing to be scared of, either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You could throw some humor into it. If they think it doesn't upset you, they might stop.<br><br><br><br>
Boy: Hey, your a Hippie!<br><br><br><br>
You: Yeah, I know dude - ain't it cool? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:"><br><br><br><br>
Then flip him the peace sign (we have no peace sign smiley on here?). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
The reason people make fun of other people and put them down is to make them feel better about themselves. That doesn't say alot about those people. You are better than them!<br><br><br><br>
Nothin' wrong with being a hippie - I consider myself one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br><br><br>
Congrats! on your new-veggieness and welcome to VB!

solve your problem with violence <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
(I'm only kidding.)<br><br><br><br>
Just grin and let them know you don't care. Or tease them back about insignificant things in a joking way. Say things like "yes, well, one of your arms is shorter than the other!"<br><br>
that's not such good advice either <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/"><br><br><br><br>

Hi hun! Wanted to let you know - mean kids will find something to tease you about, no matter what. When I was your age, I was made fun of for my clothes not being from the GAP. I know its hard to accept, but TRUST ME when I tell you that when you are older, you wont care about that kid AT ALL anymore. Remember that you are your OWN person, and THAT is cool. You don't have to be just like everyone else.

Welcome young person.<br><br><br><br>
Amy - really appreciate that proactive, positive observation. Inclusion before self-exclusion - with a future option.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Welcome-<br><br><br><br>
People will always find a reason to tease you. Be proud of who you are, and know you are doing it for the animals and not to please everyone else. Do what makes YOU happy.
