I saw this community while I was searching for Gravitation communities...hm...strange. Anyway...I'm not meaning this in a bad way, but some of the people on here need to get their facts right. People don't cut for attention, okay? Alright, I admit that some people do...I've had friends that have done it, but a serious cutter doesn't do it for attention. They do it because they need help... And you'd be surprised how many people are around you that do cut and you don't even know it. Some of your friends could be doing it and you just shove it aside because they say that they got scratched by their cat. Even if they wear shorts or short sleeves, that doesn't mean anything. There's still plenty of skin hiding beneath their demin shorts and cotton T-shirts. It just makes me sick when people say things like that... And people don't walk around and "show off" their cuts and scars. I'm still ashamed of my scars. They're not pretty, so why show them off? It doesn't make any sense. Where do you people get your information from?...

Yes...I was (am/will always be) a cutter myself for two years, but that's not revelant to the point that I'm trying to make. Open your minds, if just a little bit. I agree that cutting is bad and is quite possibly the worst way to take any kind of emotion out, but not everyone can voice their pains or write them down on paper. Some aren't that lucky and use cutting to take it out. Sick? Yes. Masochistic? Yes, very. But it's all they have... And cutting has NOTHING to do with suicide. Nothing at all...

And I read one post that made me laugh. "Why do all cutters seem to be bisexual?" What the hell?...not all cutters are bisexual. I'm not bisexual and I was a cutter. I have several friends who were cutters and they aren't bisexual. I just think that was funny. Where the hell did it come from anyway? It was kinda a random question to ask...

But while I disagree with cutting after seeing the side-effects and having it ruin my life, I still write about it. Angst and horror are my genres and cutting is something that falls into angst...it falls into angst a lot. The only book out there that really dwells on the truths about cutting is the book Cut by Patricia McCormick. Read it. It'll help you understand, or it won't and it will just make you think that cutters are crazy when they're not. And when I write about cutting I don't do the whole "Oh, my world is crashing down around me just because my boyfriend broke up with me so I think I'm gonna take a razor to my skin." No...that's not right. I tell the truth when I write, not some buttered-up, sweet thing that will be all better once they get back together with their boyfriend. No...that's not possible...

I know that this will probably, most likely, definitely piss some people off who are on here, but I really don't care. I'm sick of people calling me crazy because they see the barely there scars on my arms and I'm sick of everyone treating me like shit because of my past mistakes. Bitch me out if you must but it really won't hurt my feelings any. If anything it will just make me angry and then I'll bitch some more...
