I was just wondering if anyone else experienced this phenomena in high school. There were the set group of 'emo' kids and other down-and-outs who you knew cut and rumors spread fast and everyone in the school heard about their suicide attempts and either ridiculed or pitited them. That I believe is pretty normal. What was odd was there were a few of my friends who did it who weren't exactly POPULAR--that is, they weren't in the 'in' crowd--but who weren't well-liked my most people and pretty well off in general, and they also cut. And the weird thing is that they didn't hide it at all. It wasn't by any means that they were showing it off or they were proud of it; sometimes they wore clothes that concealed, sometimes they didn't. They honestly didn't give a fuck and if anyone did mention it the most that was said was "What's that?" and one of them would be like "Oh, I got in a fight with my mom last night so I played tic-tac-toe on my arm with a kitchen knife" and people didn't ask often. And people didn't talk about it behind their backs. THEY didn't care to hide it, so nobody else cared that they were doing it. The title of the thread's a little misleading, cuz it wasn't a trend or anything. I was just wondering if anyone else ever experienced the kids who weren't ashamed of SHing and weren't made fun of for it either?
