if anyone feels like harming themselves, please remember to think about the people and things you care about, the people that care about you, and that it will get better. self harm is not a joke, and no one should make you feel guilty for doing it. just remember that there are alternatives that help you relieve yourself without cutting. you can hold an icecube to your wrist or submerge your hands in ice, draw on your wrists with red marker or icing, write a poem, listen to music, etc. there are plenty of alternatives, and more than i can offer if you google it. stay safe and please remember that it WILL get better.

I heard it wasn't actually Miley Cyrus who spoke out against it. It was a fan account roleplaying her.
But still, hurting yourself is never the answer. It won't solve anything, and it will just make you more upset about yourself that you'll have ugly scars!
A suggestion of what to do INSTEAD is to exercise! Exercise is great for stress, and it makes you feel better about yourself too.

Cutting yourself is stupid, especially over Bieber. I mean he already did something he shouldn't have and you can't reverse it. Cutting doesn't help anything. It's an unhealthy habit and it will leave ugly scars on your arms. I knew a girl who did it. Her friends took her to the counselor and now she's all better. But she has to wear long sleaves all the time to cover her scars. It's no fun and its not funny.
Love u all,

Cutting isn't going to reverse what Bieber did. I mean he already smoked marajuanna and he said he won't do it again. Cutting for Bieber is completely pointless.

Really teenagedreamer345?You found it funny?No offense or anything, but its not. I know its your opinion,and we are all entitled to one but we are talking about people physically HARMING themselves which isnt something to joke about.Yeah their making people mad,but their also seriously screwing up lives sending the message that its okay to screw up your life if another person makes the decision to screw up their own.It makes girls(and even guys)that do cut for more devestating reasons look ridiculous.

This is disgusting.I used to self cut myself,but I'm now 2 months clean and in therapy and when I went on twitter and saw those pictures,it triggered me so much and I had never felt the urge to cut as much as I did in that moment.Its horrible that people are ruining their lives over one joint that someone they have never even talked to smoked
by rainbowssparklesdesu on 1/18/2013 7:40:28 PM
Im currently 3 weeks clean of cutting. And hearing this, makes me sick. Self harm is far from a joke. I personally find this offensive. Come on people. GET REAL
by hbmsbraceface on 1/17/2013 3:51:34 PM
I am amazed at how some people could think this is funny. Cutting yourself is NOT funny. At all. End of story. It's addictive and can ruin your life. I would know. If you're hurting yourself, get help. There's always someone there who cares about you and who you can talk to. For me, that person is my boyfriend. It could be your mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, or even a hotline. Help is out there. You're not alone. Keep your head up, beautiful, because things will get better

it was 9gag, not 4chan. and honestly? i found it kinda funny. they did what internet trolls do-make people mad.

Eating and cutting disorders aren't a joke, they are serious.
And seriously, Hollywood. That image could be photoshopped, but stars are going bad everyday. The need to realize that whatever they do affects everyone around them, and they need to cut it out. They have brains, they just need to learn to use them. I am NOT talking about all stars, there are many positive role models out there.
by awesomegirl4everandalways on 1/9/2013 3:38:19 PM
Ohmygod!!! Cutting? Seriously?!?! Use yo brains people! God didn't create them to be wasted!!
by wesdelwarrior on 1/9/2013 3:18:11 PM
This is so not cool :-( I just wish people would take these kinds of things more seriously.
by iluvmusic♥ on 1/9/2013 12:45:39 PM
I've heard that people are ACTUALLY cutting themselves over it. I didn't know it was a whole twitter thing. Did he really smoke?
by myfatsquirrel on 1/9/2013 10:51:37 AM
was he smoking though...?
by Drea148 on 1/8/2013 11:40:29 PM
eating disorders arent funny. ssly.

I am a self harm addict. And honestly, that's what it is. An addiction. It is NOT FUNNY. Kids at my school make fun of it, and it makes me want to cry right there in class. Its awful, a true nightmare. Its something evolved from a true, painful hate. There's never any true reason one can say its caused by, because everyone's pain is different.
To anyone like me, you are not alone. There is always help. Like a suicide hotline. You're beautiful, and loved. (:

Alot of kids in my school cut themselves. Honestly it is not a laughing matter. The sad part is no one is there to help them, they are there to make fun of them. And I wish our society was different but is it not. Most people wont take this message seriously but to all those do. Thanks you for having a hear. <3
by hottie1250 on 1/8/2013 9:34:59 PM
I am not a fan of Justin Beiber but that is just pathetic and sad.That is not a topic to joke around about.People get hurt all the time from cutting. Sad Just Sad
by emmacd on 1/8/2013 9:29:46 PM
I've seen this stuff all over the internet. It's blown up my tumblr, twitter, youtube, and facebook account. Self harm is NOT cool. One of my closest friends cut, and it killed her. Don't do it. Cutting for Justin Bieber isn't going to make him stop smoking and getting high. It breaks my heart how so many mainstream celebrities do such terrible things. Why can't it just be all about the music, like how it used to be?
by Scarlet_Moon on 1/8/2013 8:33:24 PM
I really care about this! I really thought people were doing that! I thought people were getting hurt for Justin Bieber. That is not okay. Here is the thing, if you actually hurt yourself and believed these hashtags, STOP! Justin Bieber and you are just hurting yourselves.
by transform2314 on 1/8/2013 8:10:17 PM
Self harm isn't something to joke about and cuttingforjustin is wrong. What is so bad about Marijauna? It is legal in some states, yeah it's very contridictory to laws and whatever but not something to make fun of self harmers for. I just found out that a mutual friend cuts...she always seems happy when I see her but I guess that's not the case. I knew her family was bad but I didn't know it was that bad. Self harm isn't for pathetic people looking for a way to get attention, it takes a lot of hate and hurt to cut open your own skin. I don't self harm, but it is something that is hard for people and no joking matter.
by LLL328 on 1/8/2013 7:25:57 PM
Wait.. Justin was caught doing that? I'm not really a fan, but still, I'm really surprised. Either way though, those girls had no right to do that. It's just pathetic on their part. I could never ever self-harm. I hate pain. But still, it's no joke. Look at how much pain Demi Lovato went through when people were mean to her? She had to go to rehab and everything, and for a while she struggled still. I used to think she did drugs and stuff, but when I heard her story I actually became a fan. But she never should have had to go through that. People these days are so pathetic and mean.
by taylorswiftfan1233 on 1/8/2013 6:21:17 PM
My best friend went through a long period where she self-harmed and I just want to say that cutting is very rarely for attention. And even if it is, it doesn't make the situation less important or dangerous. If someone feels so left out or so rejected that they have to hurt them selves to get people to listen, that's not funny. The attention they want is love. They just need someone to pick them up. So don't push them further into pain by making jokes about cutting and self harm. It's just not a joking matter. I've seen how bad this can get, it is not funny. Thank you to all who don't make jokes about this, and thank you to everyone who fights back when someone does. We can stop alot of pain by taking this matter seriously, you never know what the person sitting next to you is going through.
-Thanks, this means alot to me. <3
by blushy on 1/8/2013 5:49:19 PM
The Biebs has had it rough lately, first there were the guys who wanted to kidnap him recently and cut of some of his man parts if they didnt get a bunch of money and now this.
People are crazy, but gL is right, call the help line if you need help. And a lot of people need help at times.

hate Justin biber

I can't believe people do that to them selfs. No offense but those girls are pathetic mental idiots to do that just over Justin beiber. Girls at my school do that for attention and become instantly poplular.
