a person who mutilates their skin by using any type of sharp object. they do this because they are having problems in their life that they don't have any control over.
cutting takes place in all social groups: emo, prep, jock, skater, goth. whatever.
sterotyping cutting into the emo and goth group is wrong.
most people who cut (girls AND boys) are suffering from depression and/or bipolar disorders. cutters who are ashamed hide their mutilations by wearing long sleeves, jeans, etc.
making fun of cutters is not cool (hence, bad examle below), and making fun of them makes them want to cut even more. and this cycle continues.
cutting does releive the pain, but it is not healthy to continue, of course. a person who does cut should see a professional to help stop the additction.
THIS IS A VERY BAD EXAMPLE.
PEOPLE WHO JUDGE LIKE THIS SHOULD BE SHUNNED FROM SOCIETY.
(note: i didn't write this. i found it and it made me mad.)
stupid emo kids who try to get attention.
they say its an addiction or a way to "release emotional distress" but we all know that bullshit. its just a bunch of whiney idiots who have yet to discover sex or drugs.
xBLACKENDxSOULx: im so depressed, i slit my wrist last night
A_Relatively_Intelligent_ Person: fucking cutter...
THE GOOD EXAMPLE.
(note: this is from my own experience.)
i am a cutter. i do it when i feel alone and like i have nobody in the world who can be there for me. there are three people who know, and two of them have tried to get me to stop. the one who hasn't is my best friend, and she was told by my other best friend, who is a guy and cuts too.
i cut because my family is very unsupportive of my education. because i don't have many friends. it is very addicting and it does releive emotional stress. cutting is like drugs, but it doesn't give you cancer. it does, however, mess with your head to make you keep cutting.
i am depressed and possibly have a bipolar disorder. i wear long sleeves all the time. those who read this should not take me for a hypocrite, because i know that cutting is wrong and i have tried to stop, but it's just so hard not to when i'm having a breakdown.
(the person who wrote the bad example is a RETARD and should go fuck up something else.)
