    I don't think all "emo" people do that. Just some of them. It's stupid, I agree. :dry:

    I think it's something like that. People who don't cut themselves feel they have to in order to fit in. I dunno...

    i've known people like that to show off their cuts etc.

    some people also think it's 'cool' to be 'tragic'.....or something

    emos and goths make me laugh, to express their individuality they all dress, act, listen to and are exactly the same!

    Emo is just a vague subculture that I never quite understood. The 'emos cut for attention thing is a bit of a (damaging) stereotype'. If you dress and act in an 'emo' way, cut, wear short sleeves- then automatically displaying your cuts mean you're wanting 'attention' and of course, it wouldn't mean that you just don't want to hide your self harm wounds. It's a situation i'm sure many are in a quite trapped situation and suffer a lot of prejudice.

    There's nothing wrong with wanting attention for pain. People (not only 'emos') can self harm and have suicidal gestures- maybe a lot of underlying messages in those actions is 'please somebody help me' -perhaps they are crying out for some much needed help and support. I know my anorexia was in some ways a call for people to take notice to what was going on in my family- though i didn't understand that at that time.

    And if people felt they had to cut to fit in to a group- then perhaps that signifies a lot going on in that individual's life anyway? Take away all cultural baggage- I'm talking about an individual who feels they have to self harm to fit in- doesn't that say a lot about the person? Or perhaps self harm to them means something different from the regular SI "community." I don't know.

    I don't see why self harm scars and things have to be something you should be ashamed of. I've always been ashamed of mine and felt I needed to hide because of peoples' reactions. (No, I don't dress 'emo') .That's changing now.

    Like everyone else. its the same when people say they are an individual.. like everyone else who says that?

    Anyway, i guess only the posers do that so they can fit in.. sure they dont know what they are getting into but if thats how badly they want to be acepted then leave them to it. As for being acused of being a poser cutting emo, dont dress like one :) Problems solved! (not implying that anyone does >.>)

    i just felt touched because i slef harm since the last 5 years and people says i´m an emo for dressing in black, or dark clothers. But i´ve been always like that, i used to be ashamed of my scras but i dont care if people who i dont know sees them(of course i hide them from people who would care to not worry them)i think there should be some way to tell these people to stop and show them what r getting into

    Yeah, I agree with you Jane. I don't know how low a person has to be to pretend they're a depressed person.:dry:

    Seriously, that's so...ugh...

    I find it sad how the whole 'emo' term has changed over the years :sad:

    Nowadays someone's called 'emo' if they seek attention by being (whether it's faked or not) depressed, often along with cutting (and 'showing off' the scars)... Someone who thinks it's 'cool' to be depressed and self-harm and all that. I don't like those people, though I'm sure they have their problems. I just wish they'd seek attention differently. I mean, everyone is in need of some sort attention every now and then :dunno: , there are different ways of asking for it. I just wish the people that nowadays are considered 'emo', would not feel like they have to resort to this way of asking for attention.

    I think it's just really not cool that because of this new 'emo' stuff, the actually meaning of 'emo' click here has like faded away... :sad:
