43
a person who purposely inflicts physical injury on themself, usually by slicing the inner arms with a razor or other sharp object, such as glass, kitchen knives, etc.
burning and other harmful acts also fall under the category of self mutilation or self harm.
it affects women more than men, but when a man is a self mutilator, the injuries they inflict upon themselves are significantly more severe than the injuries of women(however, this is not always the case).
Female Cutter: slices of varying depth and length along the inner forearms; burns from a cigarette tip.
Male Cutter: razorblade completely imbedded in the skin, cuts that go down to the bone or into the muscle tissue; burns that cover large areas of body(an entire arm or most of the back)

someone who cant deal with life, some feel like they wamt to die, they cut themselfs to relive emotional pain. they most likely have a mental disorder, crying probably used to help the pain but it stoped so they felt physical pain could help relive the emotional pain, not all cutters who tell friends or dont hide the scars are attitntion seekers.

A cutter is not necessarily a emo person, they are simply a person who has so much pain (both mental and physical) that they feel that they do not have control over themselves and the only way that they can feel in control is when they cut themselves.
A person who has been abused, mentally or physically, wants to be in control over something, in which some cases it leads to personal injury. Cutters are not emo or goththey are just your everday person with too much pain.

Someone who feels so worthless and low that cutting the only way for release. They are not trying to kill themselves. They're trying to live life without killing themselves. A boy or girl can cut. Age,gender,social class, or anything like that, doesn't matter. Anyone could be a cutter. It's a serious mental health illness, and should be treated as such. Cutters, and all self harmers, have been through a lot to be that depressed to have to hurt themselves to feel anything, so respect them. They're some of the strongest people you'll ever meet.
Bully: you're a stupid cutter just kill yourself already you're worthless and you take up too much space, lose some weight fatty.
