to write love on her arms, the story, ...Renee is 19. When I meet her, cocaine is fresh in her system. She hasn't slept in 36 hours and she won't for another 24. It is a familiar blur of coke, pot, pills and alcohol. She has agreed to meet us, to listen and to let us pray. We ask Renee to come with us, to leave this broken night. She says she'll go to rehab tomorrow, but she isn't ready now. It is too great a change. We pray and say goodbye and it is hard to leave without her.
She has known such great pain; haunted dreams as a child, the near-constant presence of evil ever since. She has felt the touch of awful naked men, battled depression and addiction, and attempted suicide. Her arms remember razor blades, fifty scars that speak of self-inflicted wounds. Six hours after I meet her, she is feeling trapped, two groups of "friends" offering opposite ideas. Everyone is asleep. The sun is rising. She drinks long from a bottle of liquor, takes a razor blade from the table and locks herself in the bathroom. She cuts herself, using the blade to write "FUCK UP" large across her left forearm...
A lame organization with no other purpose but to sell overpriced t-shirts to emo faggots in eyeliner. Kids buy the shirts thinking they are making a difference, but they're only wasting their money. If you want to get help for cutting a better option is the SAFE alternatives organization. They aren't affiliated with any religion and there isn't any emo bullshit. TWLOHA's t-shirts don't stop people from cutting or killing themselves. They only draw negative attention to it. To be honest, when I firtst heard about this organization I thought it was a joke. That story about that girl sounded made-up and overly dramatic. Plus the only people I've seen wearing these shirts are ugly fat girls who want to feel like they are making a difference.
To Write Love on Her Arms sounds like a fake organization. Wearing one of their shirts isn't going to stop people from cutting or killing themselves.
to write love on her arms ( twloha ) is clothing line disguised as an intensly pretentious "non profit" organization against depression, self harm, suicide, ect. it has some sort of obsession with a story (which isnt very interesting or even well written)about a "troubled" girl who finds god before going to rehab which helps her have the strenth to recover.
the organizations biggest accomplishment appears to be its clothing collection, most notably its t-shirts. their slogan is "love is the movement" and appears on most of their clothing items.
these t shirts are primarily worn by fans of the emo pop bands that act as musical billboards for the organization, such as paramore and the academy is... and can be seen at nearly every concert/show of the genre. the organization goes hand in hand with the exploding evangelical emo sub sub genre (bands like underoath...and half of the 2007 vans warped tour line up).
girl1: ooooh! thats a cute shirt, what does it say?
girl2: love is the movement.
girl1: ohhh thats CUTE!
girl2: not really, its the slogan this lame organization thing called to write love on her arms that does basically nothing for the cause it was created to battle and once again just calls more attention to self harm and depression and the obsession the current emo genre has with it.
girl2: yea, its a shame too, cause their shirts would be totally awesome if it wasnt so played out.
