When people won't stop staring at my scars
I’m just like:
Well if you’re showing off a bunch of self harm scars and have no desire to cover up, expect curious stares. I mean, really?
Yes, really. Truly. Very much so. No one “shows off” their self harm scars, because people who…
People such as myself? I used to self harm in much more brutal ways and made sure to cover that shit up always. But when it comes to obvious attention whores, I am going to get irritated and call them out on that. LOL. So then WHY are you showing it off in the first place? How was I being rude if I was merely saying that if you show off scars, then don’t be surprised if people look, let alone stare. Might be rude but um you’re parading around self harm scars. You’re trying to act like it’s OKAY to do it and no it’s fucking not, retard. Seek help. You have a lot of nerve to get this over dramatic when all I did was point out the OBVIOUS. I never insulted anyone, definitely didn’t attack someone with a mental illness, especially if I have a case of my own issues. Protip: Stop being so goddamn sensitive and turning a simple statement into an issue that was never there to begin with.
A: It doesn’t matter how much experience you’ve had with this, it doesn’t give you a right to judge others for it. B: Calling people “attention whores” for being brave enough to not be ashamed of their scars is pretty mean. C: I am not, in fact, a retard, and calling me so in an attempt to hurt my feelings is not only cyberbullying, but is deeply offensive to people who actually are mentality disabled. I’m appalled that you would use such a term, and act as though you are being anything but cruel. D: Being brave enough to not hide your scars doesn’t mean someone thinks self harm okay, it means someone thinks it doesn’t make them any less of a human being. Which is true. E: I have a right to be as mad as I want to be about this, because you are saying nasty things on my post. If defending myself and countless others requires “a lot of nerve”, then yes, I have quite a lot of it. F: Why are you giving me a “pro” tip? Do you have credentials that make you a professional? Because unless you do, I’m not going to listen to you telling me to be less sensitive. Finally, let’s look at the tags you used for this: #GROW THE FUCK UP#AND SHUT UP WITH YOUR SILLY ASSUMPTIONS#BASED ON A LOGICAL RATIONAL STATEMENT#ATTENTION WHORES FTW#CRYING FOR HELP? SEEK A THERAPIST#OR BACKFLIP OFF A BRIDGE#YOUR CHOICE
Backflip off a bridge?
You’re going to tell people who are afraid of getting help to go KILL themselves?
I am honestly so sickened right now that I don’t know what to say. You also reblogged my other response to your rant and called me a “fag”. Do you not realize how offensive that term is too? Do you not realize how cruel you are being? Are you really trying to make a point, or are you just trying to hurt me and other people?
You can reblog this and add more mean commentary if you want, but I’m done. I’m disgusted and saddened that something this awful had to happen to something I try to make positive. I’m honestly at a loss for words.
You know what, just like the majority of Tumblr users, you’re going to keep up with this victim act and refuse to listen to my valid points. “Something I try to make positive.” YOU MADE MY POST NEGATIVE, YOU DUMB FUCK. It was a basic “you show cuts, expect stares” comment then you start playing the fake depression act and going “BAWWW YOU’RE MEAN. BAWWW WHAT AN INSULT TO MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE EVEN THOUGH YOU SAID NOTHING ABOUT THEM.” How in the FUCK do you take something so badly out of context and turn it into this huge problem? You SELF HARM, you are a walking fucking negative! How in the fuck can you possibly promote positivity, dumb ass attention whore? You literally have no fucking argument and want to keep on playing pity party so I’m through with your ass. I’m not gonna baby you. You’re an attention whore. Get over it. You’re proudly displaying self harm scars cause you don’t seek proper help and want attention to seem edgy. Pathetic as fuck. LOL. You can’t even give a valid reason behind THAT. It’s for attention, end of.
As I matter of fact, I do NOT display my self harm scars, and have never shown them to ANYBODY. And actually, i AM in proper treatment and have been for quite some time. I have a valid argument, and you do not. Your use of offense language, and your use of a picture of a child who actually has a very deadly and serious health condition to call ME an attention whore, overshadow any point you are trying to make. You call me pathetic, yet you are the one calling names like a child. You call me an attention whore, yet you are the one who won’t stop with the offensive comments. You can call me whatever the fuck you want, but you are not getting yourself anywhere, and all you are doing is losing what little respect you had here. Stop. Stop being a bully. Not because you are hurting me - because trust me, your opinion of me means nothing - but because you are wasting your time. Does treating me like this make you feel better about yourself? If you need to be so cruel in order to feel powerful, I am so sorry for you. Clearly, you are the one here who has not gotten proper help. I hope you get it soon. xx
"When people stare at my scars" implies that you do and you never denied that until now so I’m gonna go out on a limb here and not believe you now that you finally realized how retarded you look. Because you know I had the valid point and still do so don’t even try to turn around your words now. At the very least, stay consistent with your shit. And um, you ARE an attention whore for showing off your cuts. Me calling you out for what you are doesn’t make me one lol. I don’t… get that logic but okay then, maybe in that little dopey sheltered world of yours, shit works like that. No I don’t feel anything, kid. That’s the issue here. You’re trying to make me feel something I can’t and that’s empathy for a person like you. Clearly my opinion means something if it’s getting you this emotional. Just funny to see you try to analyze me when really, I function perfectly fine in reality. Just because I curse out some ditzy bitch online doesn’t mean that I’m not okay. You’re pixels on a screen.
I don’t even know what to say anymore, so I’m done. You’ve successfully made me feel like shit.
I hope you’re fucking happy.
A person with such thin skin shouldn’t be on the internet.
Oh go to hell. Look, I’ve never shown anyone my scars, and as a result, I’ve gone through to motions of learning how to use makeup just to hide them. Calling someone a “walking negative” for having scars and showing them is the absolute opposite of this post’s point. The idea was that having uncovered scars is bravery because you’re no longer ashamed, and that one should not have to expect stares. Of course, most people are going to stare, but in this modern day, that is the result of the social stigma around mental illnesses.
So don’t go calling people attention whores for not covering their scars, and don’t be calling my friend here a “retard” or anything else you’ve got. It feels like hell for the mentally ill to go through recovery and a step in the right direction is to not be ashamed and move past it. Certainly doesn’t help to have people like you around, so get the hell of my friend’s blog.
Yes, reply with nothing but an irrelevant picture. And you’re calling us the immature ones. I read through everything, so before you start making assumptions again, why don’t you just reiterate your point? Because from what I can tell, you’re point is that “parading around” self-harm scars makes people “attention whores”.
First of all, where the hell do you get the right to call people attention whores? Maybe attention is being sought because a person is mentally ill, and deserves some attention. I don’t know where you get the idea that seeking attention is such a bad thing since you’re doing it right now, but you can fuck off with that stupid idea.
Second, we are talking about self-harm SCARS here. Not cuts, scars. Which means they are healing. And if I had enough bravery, I would go out without covering my scars because it means I’m past that stage. It would mean I’m past the idea that self-harm is the correct coping mechanism for dealing with pain and that I’m in the process for recovery. But there’s a stigma that I wouldn’t deal with, and you’re promoting that very stigma.
And lastly, this does not make me the victim. We may suffer from mental illness but our illnesses do not victimize us. People like you do. And the fact that you think it’s okay to use such offensive language (retard, for one) is not okay, and it’s clearly better for everyone if you just go fuck off with your bullshit ideas about how the world works.
