Cutting is when someone commits self injury on themselves because it is the only way they know how to cope with what ever it is that they are going through. Some people say that emo's are the ones who cut, but the truth is that 1. emo is a music genre, and 2. even if they did, they would only do it for attention. Where as most cutters try to hide what they do from other people or cover it up. Some people think it is a fad, but it is a serious problem in today's youth, especially in girls (although guys do it too).
PS. sorry about any spelling errors.
Dealing with stress or trauma by becomming cutters. A cutter cuts their arms, legs, stomach, or other parts of their body enough to bleed, and usually leave a mark. Then hides it after releaving the stress.
