I'm having problems with a group of boys making fun of me for having "speech problems", which I don't! What are some methods to ignore it?

Other people are beginning to catch on and replace the "s" sound with the "sh" sound when their around me. For example, today in Social Studies we got to choose where we wanted to sit for today and these boys just started talking with a lisp they claim I have then they started talking about how I smell strange (I carpool, look back at my other questions for more on that stinky situation). It's getting out of hand and well known kids in my school I making fun of me for it. I just don't know what to do, I have a lot of friends but I feel like I'm nothing. What are things I can do? Keep ignoring it? Btw, there is nothing wrong with lisps, it's just that I'm sure i don't have one and they keep bugging me. It started on the first day of school when I accidentally said "Jeshica" instead of "Jessica", I laughed it off at first but I don't know why people are STILL continuing it ever since 2012 September!

Just rip a big loud fart and then say : Did that have a lisp too ? Just to your darndest to ignore them and stick with your real friends ! Good friends will stay by your side ! If these kids want to act like two year olds then tell them that ! Let them be two year olds ! You just be yourself and know better !

that just means they're jerks. Tell them to SHUT THEIR FACEHOLES, because they are being retarded.

Well, you could tell them that enough is enough and to lay off. They may not realize that it still annoys you. If they do, then they're stupid. You could always just evade them, pretend you don't hear them, whatever. But to really end it, you need to tell them how you feel and that you want them to stop. Don't be nice, either. You have to be forceful and make sure they understand. Not fighting or anything, but you can't be like, "please stop". You have to make sure they understand.

Welcome! Working things out calmly is always the way to go. Make sure to tell me if, ahem, WHEN they stop. :)
