I'm so glad there's a community like this. I agree that most people cut them selves for attention, and to be "trendy". I find that those type of people are just pathetic. I have A LOT of kids at my school that cut them selves for the stupidest reasons. One guy i know cut his arm because his parents pissed him off. (the usual scenario) Another thing that bugs me is all the icons that have bloody wrists.
I've never cut myself, and i never will. I find better ways to deal with things.
