So I haven’t drawn anything since July
and I’m missing part of my soul…save for the animal designs I did while I was in Japan in early Aug…so can I ask for a little forgiveness at how terrible this is, please? I’m sorry…
I just wanted to draw something “from” tonight’s ep.
I hate seeing the word “emo” used on DeviantArt. I’ve seen it in group titles, art titles, literature, people’s names, in OC descriptions, everywhere. Especially when people have descriptions of their OC’s like “My OC cuts them self everyday (:”. It really hurts to know that the community that…
I don’t self-harm/never have, but I feel this post is important enough to reblog. There’s nothing wrong with having depressed characters, but there’s something very wrong if you’re treating it like a good thing.
This. I’m apathetic to self-harm or suicide jokes, as I’m apathetic to any topic joke as long as it’s not targeting a person in particular, but boy…does it really piss me off when people…as the op said, treat this stuff as a game or a good thing. I know I ranted about this a lot, the way people flaunt their [self-diagnosed] mental illness and act like it’s cool, or how it would be “awesome to be in a mental ward”, so I’ll save you from going off about that again.
Then there are the people who self/fake-harm and take pictures of it and post it. Some say it’s empowering, but as I said…I don’t fucking get it, and it makes me mad that thy take pride in that stuff. I photoshop my scars out of pictures of me before I post them! Just this past year I’ve allowed myself to write about my issues, because of the way I’ve noticed people goin on about how “cool” it is to have these illnesses. Before I would go as far as to say “I’m normal”.
Do you actually know what it’s like to be medically diagnosed? Do you actually know what it’s like to have these issues? It’s a curse. People treat you like a plague, and you see a plague in the world that “no one else can”.
Wow, maybe because you should check your privileges? Just because someone cuts, it doesn’t make them lesser than you are. Perhaps the person who cuts may have something your crush needs/wants in their life and person compared to you. If you’re so shallow as to think someone should choose you over a cutter [because you don’t cut], then that says a lot right there.
Also, have you ever heard the quote, “intelligent girls are more depressed, because they know the world”?
