Every time I have uploaded a picture where my scars were visible, people have commented things such as, “look at the scars on her arm though /:” or “her scars :c” or something along the lines of that. It’s honestly just painful to read that because it just shows that this society does not believe that guys struggle with these issues. Whether it be depression, self-injury, anorexia, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, or whatever, boys can suffer from it, too. It’s not just girls. Mental illnesses do not discriminate.
I am living proof of that.
I’M SORRY SO MANY TEXT POSTS BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT
there’s a post going around of some girl linking to a “picture of her prom dress” when the link leads to a picture of a gif’d mutilated face and screaming. i imagine that this could be very harmful to both people with epilepsy or those with anxiety problems and the like. it happened to alarm me a lot.
please boost so no one gets hurt! we don’t want any seizures or panic attacks!
