Sorry about that, but still

I don't think someone going through bad things justifies being an edgy special snowflake attention w**re. It's like some people think they're the only ones who go through stuff like that. (Don't mean any offense, but things like this sometimes bring my insensitivity level up a notch)

I have a friend with schizophrenia. Really, really nice guy, we talk and laugh about stuff, etc. I only noticed he cut himself when I saw scars on his arm. He certainly didn't seek out my attention about it.

It's not his fault if he has schizophrenia. It's uncontrollable.

People don't self cut for attention. It's a mental illness, like schizophrenia or clinical depression or Bipolar. There are some interesting videos, one girl in particular that discusses her battle with self harm. I met her once at a conference on mental illness. (I can't remember her name now, it was couple of years ago) It's very sad, but I applaud her courage to speak openly about it an attempt to help other people understand the illness. It's certainly not about getting attention. Most that do it keep it very well hidden.

Or maybe he's wearing that style because he likes the way it looks? Assuming you know someone's motivations is the first step toward judging them for their choices.

I suppose you're right. But that doesn't cross out that there are still people who dress like that for attention though

Well, I didn't say that I think the "majority" do it for that reason, I was just saying that there is probably at least more than one person who dresses like that.

I agree that the world would be a better place if people wouldn't judge people and assume the worst of people (although if you were say, a little kid, and someone told you to get in their white van saying "free candy" it would probably be a better idea not to). That's why I avoid cringe threads, because everyone has a reason for something, even if what they're doing is stupid or bad. It might just be a coincidence, they might be drunk or whatever, or it might be that they're minset is different from most people.

Lost my wife of 25 years to a schizophrenic disorder. Since that time I've done a lot of work with families affected by mental illness. Met a couple of cutters too. It's incredibly sad and painful to see what it does to both victims and families.

the amount of hate is uneeded, its a joke. plus theres a big difference between emo & illness, where in this meme does it mention attention w**res, where does it say anything about illness. you people get a serious life and stop ruining jokes but shoving shit down them.

hey so i don't want to cause any more hate then there already is, but its a FRICKING JOKE! so I understand that this is a serious issue and all, but if no-one laughed at their mistakes or past, it really would only result to more pain, cutting and suicide! If society didnt laugh at itself, wouldn't life be a dull, boring, hate filled place? many people get over things by laughing at their own pain, and as doctors always say, laughter is the best medicine.

I get that this is a fairly common joke, but it's neither funny nor okay. Cutting is serious, and people who do it already feel ashamed of it and just about everything else in their lives. Mocking them in meme form is the opposite of helpful.

reply

Okay, I'll put this all in caps because you people still don't seem to get it…

CALLING AN OFFENSIVE COMMENT A JOKE DOES NOT MAKE IT LESS OFFENSIVE.

And to whoever asked me "Are you emo?" I don't know; are you an asshole? Seriously, how the f**k is that relevant?
reply
1 up, 1 reply
Alright, I apologize. I read more comments after posting and realized that was pretty insensitive.
However, my point is, this is a site for fun, and just as we call out those who start raging political flame wars on a site meant for fun, I'm also saying that this was not made to be offensive to anyone, and as GrammarHitler pointed out, sometimes laughter is the best medicine.
My schizophrenic friend? I recently realized he is or was a cutter since I saw scars on his arms. Would he laugh at this? I can tell you with 100% certainty that he would.
I'm sorry for what you go through, I understand that your life must not be an easy one, but that does not mean you have to pour out your anger on someone who made this with good intentions. You don't have to laugh, but you also don't have to tell everyone about how you didn't laugh, you know what I mean?
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
Okay, I get where you're coming from, but here's where I'm coming from:
Cutters are silenced every day. They're already ashamed of what they do, and when they come clean about it to a friend or family member, they're often shamed even more. My brother doesn't know about my self-harm, and I don't dare tell him because he makes jokes like this one. Maybe he'd apologize and say he didn't know and stop making those jokes, but those jokes make me think he'd look at me in a new and negative light.
So when I see jokes like this, it doesn't make me "laugh at myself" or any other bullshit like that. It reminds me of how difficult it is for me to find real help, because there are so many people in the world who laugh at this, laugh at me, and laugh at people like me. They don't take it seriously, and so when I say "Hey, I'm struggling with this, please help me" they shrug and say "You got yourself into this mess; get yourself out."
I'm not "pouring out my anger on someone who made this with good intentions." I'm giving them a peek into my life and trying to help them avoid causing more pain by making insensitive jokes. And for that, I get lectured and downvoted.

I see where you're coming from, as well. But the thing is, although I really am sorry for what you are going through and I hope that you can find help, (and yes, you are absolutely allowed to think "Wow, you don't know shit about this, do you?" because I probably don't) I think the healing process is certainly helped by the support of family and friends, but it also starts with you. You can't get help if you don't reach out to people who you know you can trust, and your family and friends DO love you and can help you. But above all, only you can tell them what's happening. Band-aids may help cuts heal, but only your body can do it on its own. And I think afterwards, when you've healed, when you've gotten out of the dark place you're in, it might feel good to look at that and laugh and think, "It's over, that's not me anymore." Laughing is a way to wash away troubles.
(Alright, I'll just shut up now as I am sounding sappy enough to... er... [insert witty comment here].)

There is a reason why this is a meme. Being emo, and therefore cutting yourself because you fall in that stereotype is really stupid. I can relate to it, but the way you feel about yourself and your life doesn't make you an emo or anything else, you just become mediocre and sad. So if you are emo it's because you want to look like one, act like one, be with others that are emo, and listen to that music. Of course if you have suicidal thoughts you need help, and you'll always deserve it.

cutters just seem to be an easy target because it is self inflicted, i wouldn't compare them to other abuse
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
Why not? Many cutters are victims of abuse, usually parental. The urge to self-harm doesn't come out of nowhere; it's a flawed coping mechanism for other, deep-seated issues.
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
completely different category of abuse, with completely different treatment
reply
3 ups, 2 replies
So why is that grounds for considering it to be "less serious" than other forms of abuse? Why should it be okay to mock cutters but not others who have been abused? Pain is pain, and the nature of it doesn't give others a right to mock it.
reply

same basic reason there are laws against harming someone else, but not for yourself

So….if someone killed themselves, we'd have a right to mock them, but not if they were murdered? Your logic collapses on itself if you look too hard.

reply
3 ups, 4 replies
I never compared it to **pe; I just put jokes about it in the same category, in that they all expect people to laugh at someone else's trauma. Stop putting words in my mouth, and stop telling me to "settle down." There aren't a lot of things I get worked up about, but people mocking others in pain is one of the few things for which I think anger is justified.

can someone who was?is a cutter step in?
Hi. im an American teenage girl who suffers abuse from my biological mother and father. they has since split ans as a very confused young person filled with remorse along with a bunch of pent up anger and hate for myself and others i turned to cutting not knowing what else to do. Everyone that i have met since i started cutting were also victims of some sort of abuse. I was also **ped on my 14th birthday, leading to more cutting. So you all you asshole that deside that its not importent like **pe or domestic violenc, theses ideas dont come out of thin air, they are a desprate cry for help. that was my reason, i hope you dont steriotypse all "emo" people taht way, because i was seen as a perfectly normal girl.

oh, and f**k all of you who thought this was funny. I hate your guts and hope you feel terrible about yourself for doing so, its a real problem that people seem not to really care about (not saying that none do because obviously there are some)

I've self-harmed since I was 15, and let me say that I hope whoever downvoted you (and anyone else who downvotes you) gets whatever karma has in store for them. And for you, stay strong. The people laughing at this meme and downvoting those of us who say it's wrong are self-centered assholes. YOU do not deserve to be made to feel guilty for calling them out on it.

I don't get that, either. Site's broken. :/ Anyway, the arguments of these down voters essentially boil down to "I know this is a sick joke, but I shouldn't have to feel guilty for laughing at it. My comfort is more important than yours." They're in the wrong, and they know it.

When people try to help, sometimes they REALLY mess it up. I know of one cutter whose parents were abusive, and when they found out about her cutting, the abuse escalated. They acted like she'd done it to TRY to make them look bad (and even hinted at it a few times, to her). I've seen a few therapists who actually shamed me for cutting and told me I had no good reason to do it, rather than trying to help me. I was being abused, and they sided with my abusers instead of sympathizing with me.

And honestly, if you're on here making fun of cutters, I don't blame your emo friend for avoiding you.
1 up
im sorry that people were cruel to you about your problem, i've been to many therapists and they all told me that i had no reason to cut and basically told me to knock it off. it was annoying and it never EVER helped. people were always condescending assholes and when i stopped it was on my own for a week. one week and people still referred to me as "cutter girl"
