Stupid Cutters

Emo, is a genre. I like the music, But I hate people who call themselves emo, and I expecially hate people who cut themselves, and pretend to have problems. All they want is attention.

This makes me laugh, I don't call myself "emo".. It's just another label, we're all human. I do cut however, I cut because of people like you, I cut because of many reasons. I DO NOT cut for attention. Yes, hate me all you want. I don't care, go sit in the line of people that hate me. Honestly, you're stupid. You be someone who cuts, (Don't even say ''ewwie I don't want to be a fggt like dem.) how would you like seeing this crap. People hating on you because of what you do to YOUR body, it's our body, we make the decisions. So stop, like literally. Stop labeling, stop all of this. You hate people you don't even know. Do you see how stupid you sound? Okay? Okay.
Now, honey, you're the attention seeker.

It's really cute how you think we cut for attention. Enlighten me, how is one attention seeking for feeling enough pain to want to prove to themselves that they are as worthless and "problemless" in your words, to drag a blade across their arms, or their legs, putting their life at risk of ending. It takes a lot of pain for someone to do that, and it's people like you who make people cut. You are so ignorant, as is everyone else who makes someone feel so bad about themselves to the point they want to end their lives. It's people like you who are desperate enough for attention to go as far as pull out and pick on the people who feel bad enough about themselves to harm themselves in such a way. Obviously you don't know what it's like to hate yourself so much. You know why? I'm sure that your entire life you've had people tell you how beautiful you are. We are the people that have been called out for not being good enough. If people are just as beautiful because they wear too much makeup and skimpy clothing, the truly beautiful people are tossed aside as not perfect enough because they do not over-do the makeup and beauty products.
I'm sorry, who's attention seeking?

people who cuts themself don't search for attention but for help.... i mean, im emo but i dont cut myself, and what now? you know what emo is like? emo is a style, just it ok? so dont judge what u dont know, or what u dont feel ok?

I don't cut for attention some do and don't like people like that ether

Why do you cut then?

Add a response...

shut the f up u lying piece of shi*

I write poetry for attention.

Cutting is so stupid. I hate people who act like they have a problem that's worse than everyone else's problem. Most people have worse problems than them yet they cut. I've been bullied, I know what it's like to feel worthless, yet I've never cut or thought of suicide. There are starving African children who would rather be in cutters position. If you ask a cutter if they'd like to switch places with the millions of people who have it worse they'd most likely refuse. Cutting is a problem if you have been diognosed with depression or something . Not if your upset. Bottom line cutter need to GROW UP.

I understand your logic, but it still isn't applicable. The authenticity of our problems is not determined by the relative severity of our surroundings, but rather our coping mechanisms for dealing with them. What is heaven for some, might be hell for others. The bottom line is, there should be no personal judgement of one's situation that would keep you from reaching out to them. Even for people who do it for attention you shouldn't disregard them as being people who simply don't need help. Above all, arguing that someone doesn't have a right to be sad because others may have it worse, is no more ridiculous than arguing that someone doesn't have a right to be happy because others may have it better. Emotions are not harnessed with logic.

I was once a cutter, for about two years there wasn't a day where I didn't have a fresh wound somewhere. I would cut when I got frustrated, when I got sad, when I got lonely. But that was a while ago. I will be one year cut-free next month and you know what? Cutting is stupid. Looking back I realize how idiotic I was being. It the beginning it was all for attention, that's why the first scars are on my wrists. Anyone who cuts and has no actual mental condition screws over the ones that do need real help. People with disorders that drive them to cutting need help. So to all attention cutters, my past self included, stop. I'm ashamed of what I did and you will be too.

You, my narrow minded friend, are an idiot.

God what is wrong with society and people these days? Yes some people do cut for attention but others dont. Others actually have mental illnesses and thats how they cope. Dont judge us all just because there are a few who fake it for attention

actually no they don't cut for attention

By putting this out there, you're the one who's looking for attention. So what if people are emo? I'm emo, and proud. People cut to express their pain, it's not like they wave their scars in your face and say "oh look, I cut". You are so narrow-minded.

Thank God someone other than me stands up for people like us!

i agree with you

Then you hate me. I have 'Post-traumatic stress disorder' and i cut myself. I'm not an emo.. I just can't handle my feelings. The people who cut are strong youknow. They're still alive.

We don't do it for attention or why would we try so hard to hide it and also if we don't pretend to have problems im pretty sure no one cuts for attention why put yourself thru pain

sadly I do know someone that cuts only for attention, but that doesn't make us all like that.

If they didn't want attention they wouldn't tell people or make it so blatantly obvious

not all do. just the ones that actually do It for attention! POINT PROVEN!!!!!!!!!

Us cutters are not attention seekers. Why would we do that to ourselves to get attention? We don't. When we cut, we try to hide it from everyone because we don't want to be called "emo", "attention seekers" and other things. So stop saying that people who cut just want attention, because we don't want attention, we want all the pain to go away. Thats it.

I know a girl who cuts and I thought your response was useful but I'm worried about her because I've seen the cuts ,she doesn't want to go to the councilor and sometimes when she doesn't have a blade she runs the cuts under water and re opens them. How can I help her without seeming patronizing?

Sparklebean, all that you can do is stay by her side. I was the same way, always cutting and re-opening my cuts, and all my family and friends were worried bout me and trying to get me to go get help. But I didn't want help at the time. So they keep telling me how all the scars will stay an how my children will see them and ask what they are and me not wanting them to know. Just tell your friend that there's more to life than hurting themselves and sooner or later she will stop because she will see that she has someone who cares a lot about her. Don't leave her side ever it she will just simply give up.

Really! You really need to be quiet. They are not looking for attention! This is just mean. Don't judge people, you have no clue what they're going through so just be quiet.

I understand where u r coming from but not all cutters only cut for attention! 99% of the time there is a reason other than that. so plz consider things b4 posting things that will offend people like me. with all do respect. =)

It's good that you've never felt this way. That means you haven't felt the pain. But I think its sad that you would consider this as a 'trend' or 'fashion' cause most of the time is not. I try to hide them cause I hate my scars. I don't want them on my body, I don't want to feel this way. But you will never understand until it happens to you. Behind every eye is a story, these people are slowly dying inside. I'm going through it and it's not funny at all. It's like living hell. Don't make fun of it cause it's beyond what you know. It's easy to know who's faking it, but hard to know who isn't.

I'm not going to attack you, I just want to know why. Some people really do have problems and they feel like a razor is the only thing keeping them sane. The cut to make sure the pain that they feel inside is real. Maybe you don't understand and that's okay, not everyone does. Just please think twice before you say you hate cutters. That's labeling. Thats like saying I hate all white people. Or I hate all hispanics. It just isn't okay and offensive to someone people. I don't support what you think but I do accept the fact that you entitled to your own opinion.

THINK, YOU DUMB ***, YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS

IF ITS JUST FOR ATTENTION, WHY DO WE TY SO HARD TO KEEP IT A ******* SECRET?!

You must relax, some people just don't understand sometimes. It's just sick to hear but good to know they haven't been through it. I'm glad they don't have to feel pain. But shocked to see that they don't care.

i have depression,anxiety,anger i have to take medication for all this. and i cut. I DONT label myself as "emo" i consider myself danielle. but understand people go through very hard times. and you don't know their story. YES there are some attention seekers but not all are like that. I'm not going to call you names or anything i just want to let you know calmly and not trying to pitch a fight, nor am i mad just maybe try to get you to see differently. :)

u have no idea how it feels to be in so much pain, tht u cut to just cover up the inner pain! ur being stupid! DON'T TALK AGAINST SOMETHING U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!!!!! thank u so much, ur freakin triggering! damn it! u don't know us cutters! keep ur opinions to ur self!

Can you **** off! Thats all I have to say to you!

we don't want attention and don't pretend to have problems. And i have never head a person that self harms call themselves 'Emo'

This post is really pathetic because my honest opinion is right now your the one who's looking for attention.

How can you hate them when you don't even know them. If its such an attention seeking thing, then why do most of them always wear long sleeves and cover it up and get antsy when someone spots them. Can you tell me this? Some people actually do have problems and its their only way to cope. You have no idea what some people go through, so you have no reason to be speaking

The only thing i dont underatand is why you HATE them.. wouldnt you want to help us?, yes i cut. But that doesnt mean its for attention.. its because i feel like i deserve to be punished for being so worth, stupid, ugly, ect. But even when i didnt cut.. i still respected the people who did. I want to help people and make them happy because i want them to have that.. even if i dont.. please try to understand. And then maybe you wouldnt be so rude about it all.. all im saying is, dont criticize what you cant understand...

I agree, because you don't know what people go through and it ****** me off to know that there are so many judgemental ***** out there.

Hi, not be disrespectful or anything but, I cut and I'm not looking for attention. Some cutters actually DO do it for attention but, if I wanted attention, why would so many of us hide it with long sleeves in the middle of summer and not swimming on one of the hottest day of the year because they have cuts on the parts that show. How do you know they 'pretend to have promises' when you're not in their shoes? My story is this, I've been abused, bullies, heartbroken, depressed, and killed emotionally. I have OCD, many family problems, and all of the people I know hate me.
