I don't think you need our sympathy--it's those who haven't twigged to the beauty of Perl that need it.

There are any number of good technical counter-arguments for each of the critisisms you listed, many of which can be found in 'cross-language debate' meditations around this place. But the best answer (IMO) is:

Okay. If you like doing things the hard way, I ain't gonna try to stop you.

And leave it there. Don't elaborate.

    Don't elaborate.

    Unless asked, of course. In which case, by all means elaborate, but stick to specific examples and try not to sound like a zealot, because skeptics can smell a zealot a mile away, even an unwitting one.
