Making Friends With PETA

More than 1.8 million people support PETA, making it the largest animal rights organization in the world! Find out more about PETA right here.

Fight for Animal Rights

PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It was founded in 1980 by a couple of animal rights activists named Alex Pacheco and Ingrid Newkirk. PETA believes animals have just as many rights as humans, so they're "not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or use for entertainment." That means no meat, no milk, no fur, no wool, no leather, no zoos, no circuses and no medical research using animals!

Say No to Dissection!

PETA has created a school campaign called Cut Out Dissection, which tries to stop animal dissection in the classroom and replace it with more humane ways of learning about biology, like doing alternative research or using computer programs such as virtual dissection. Since some states have laws that give you the right to refuse to dissect, PETA wants you to speak up and just say no to cutting up cats, pigs, frogs, rabbits, fish, mice and other animals.

Celebrity Supporters

PETA has a ton of celebrity backing to help them fight for their cause! Here's just a few of 'em:

Be a PETA Kids Superstar!

It's okay to brag about bein' a superstar, as long as it's in the name of animal rights! If you or someone you know is steppin' up to protect animals, send an email to PETAKids@peta.org to nominate a superstar of the month!

Did You Know?

  • PETA pelted a flour bomb at Paris Hilton for wearing fur!
  • PETA secretly placed the winning bid for an eBay auction that offered fans a chance to dine with Beyonce Knowles. Over sushi, two PETA members confronted her about wearing fur coats and using fur in her clothing line, House of Dereon.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
