Tell them to get a life if they laugh at you. It depends on how many hands your horse is in relation to your own height and your level of fitness. I am 5 ft 3" and my horse is 18hh. I can't mount him from the ground and never will be able to, not even pulling the stirrups down. I have to stand on steps or a mounting block. No-one laughs. His previous owner had to climb up on a dining room table to get on his back. Just use whatever enables you to get on your horse safely. Other people will have to get over it.
