Ah, fanpop, it's been so long since I had a nice rant.
Recently due to personal experiences I've been looking up people's opinions of cutting, as in, self-harm. Which got me thinking about how other people think in relation to this issue.
The most common thoughts in regard to cutting is 'It's weak and pathetic,' although there are some dumbfucks out there who seem to think 'eet's just a way 4 deprezive ppl 2 tak out how der feelin.'
Wanna know what really fucking PISSES ME OFF about these two groups? In the majority, NEITHER OF THEM CUTS. They might know cutters, but they've never put a fucking blade to their own skin and watched themselves bleed, knowing that THEY caused this. THEY are the ones responsible for the red trickling down their arm/thigh/wrist/shoulder/WHATEVER with an expression of blank amusement on their face.
If you've ever cut, you'll know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, then you can try.
I am a cutter. It's not something to be proud of, it's sure as hell not any form of art, and it seems a lot of non-cutters have taken the issue off our hands and into their own! Yeah, thanks for that! It's so appreciated! /OBVIOUS AND HEAVY SARCASM
From my experiences as a cutter, it's not because I get a THRILL out of seeing my own blood. It's not because I'm a masochist, and to be honest, if I'm a masochist or not isn't any of your fucking business. It's not because I'm depressed. It's not because I hate myself. And it's NOT because I want to die.
I DO NOT SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION. NOT ALL CUTTERS DO, OKAY!?
So why do I do it? Simple; I AM WEAK AND PATHETIC.
So dumbfucks, if you're out there saying that cutting is some form of art or some other such related bullshit, then I suggest strongly that you get the fuck out of your little hole, come out from under your rock, and take it in for what it is; self-harm.
Not all cutters suffer from depression, as said. Some do, but not all of them. They don't need your support, they need your fucking HELP. They need someone to pat them on the fucking back, tell them it'll all be okay, and that they should just grow up and stop hurting themselves over stupid reasons.
People cut because they're NOT DEALING WITH THINGS that other people CAN DEAL WITH. What a cutter needs is someone to help them deal with their problems. Not sympathy, not support, and for fucking sakes NOT YOU STUPID FUCKS telling them it's art!
I know it sounds really hypocritical coming from someone sitting here typing with scarred hands from cuts made only yesterday, but it's HARDER than just stopping.
It's like an addiction, okay? It's a part of a routine. I get fucking PISSED OFF if I haven't cut myself. I want to KILL people when I don't. Hell, if you gave me a nine-iron I probably WOULD kill people if I haven't had my dose of bleeding.
What a cutter needs most of all is understanding. The best people for helping cutters isn't someone with a psychology degree, it's someone who's cut themselves either in the past, or hell, even someone who does still cut but wants to change.
So for you dumbass 'lol imma emo' people, I'd really appreciate it if you'd STOP representing me. Stop being butthurt attention-seeking little asswipes and grow a fucking pair. Your life is not THAT FUCKING BAD. Truth is, 'normal' people wouldn't hate you so much if you just stopped acting like retards about it.
I know you're pissed off at all those stupid whining attention-seekers, but truth is, not all of us are like that. So after they all bleed out in a spa one day, we'll sit down, have a nice conversation over a cup of tea, and laugh at the bloodless corpses filling the streets.
With love, a Cutter.
If anyone has any questions regarding this, please feel free to ask. I promise I'll be nice about it.
I just really needed to get this out there. :)
