We've all seen the to write love on her arms shirts and such... I personally think its a ridiculous "charity" because I don't care about made up problems of upper-middle class girls who want attention. This perfectly captures my feelings.

I wouldn't put this in the youtube thread cause its not really what that thread is meant for. But if A mod feels so, I'll gladly delete the thread or whatever I need to do.

I agree with this video.
The video is about the fact that the guys who make the To write love on her arms shirts are making millions off of suicide.

So I just looked up what TWLOHA actually is and it's apparently based in Central Florida.


Odd....

TS, just shut up. Nobody wants to hear your whining.

Self harm is an actual, serious problem, and it is not one for you to joke about.

It is a serious, actual problem, and like an above user said, the video shows how TWLOHA is an organisation that profits from said problem.

...and puts the money back into trying to help and prevent the problem? That's not a profit.

For the record, I have never heard of the charity since I live in Scotland but seriously, if it's a charity then you can be pretty sure the members aren't 'profiting' from the donations etc. Cynicism gone too far.

Whining? ...whining? quote me PLEASE!! with my whining, I beg you. I shared my opinions of this organization and then the link to the video then mentioned the youtube thread to prevent people refering me to it.

In fact, your post was very close to whining... Could be considered whining for sure.

Self harm can be a serious problem, but it only exists to its extent because of how it has been glamorized. Everyone gets depressed, everyone looses someone close to them or goes through a hard time. I don't have sympathy for people how wallow in self-pity and much less for people who profit from other people's wallowing.

You are wrong.

"It is estimated that 900,000,001 Americans suffer from derpression every hour."


I'm sorry, I can't watch the rest of the video


EDIT: I love the comment on the video, "900,000,000 Americans?!!!?!? ARE YOU RETARDED?! There are only roughly 300,000,000 Americans. dumbass."

I think it was a decent parody.

I love all the comments on the video saying how stupid the video creator is. Do they not realize it is a joke?

I didn't even watch the video, to be honest, I was mainly talking about TS's "upper-middle class girls who want attention" remark.

I find this funny because TWLOHA is pretty much a trend now, but I'd still support the organization by buying a shirt because
1. They still look cool
2. This organization isn't trying to help people who are pretending to be depressed, they actually try helping people affected by suicide.

I've self harmed in the past when i was extremely depressed, i felt like i couldn't talk to anyone so i just cut myself to hope the problems would go away, this was as recent as 2 weeks ago. Then I spoke to my ex what the name of the charity was that she was involved in cos one of my friends who's birthday was comming up was a huge Paramore fan and went on about it so i thought i'd get her a T-Shirt.

I haven't actually visited the site yet, and no i'm not an attention seeker, i actually didn't wear anything that went above my wrists for a long time untill the scars would heal.

I think there are alot of people that do it out there for attention, yes. But calling everone that everyone who self harms an attention seeker is just ignorant.

^true, I should clarify, I shouldn't have implied that everyone involved was this way. However, I do think a majority of it is just people being trendy. The people I know who "deal with depression and cutting" do it for attention and overreact about little problems.

My stance on those people is **** happens to everyone, not everyone draws attention to themselves for it so you don't have to either..

For the real people though, I have sympathy. They aren't even whats being bashed in the video though.

Exactly. I know people who do it for attention and those who do it for real reasons. Those who do it for attention i try not to asociate myself with. Mainly because they've been attention seekers ever since i've knowen them, so i know there's not a real reason behind it, just stupid stuff like "my mum won't but me a new phone because i broke my old one"

i personally cant stand to write love on her arms, mainly because i dont feel much sympathy for those that do cut, there are plenty of people out there with rough lives that actually make the best of a bad situation instead of feeling sad for themselves and trying to "escape the pain." i know depression is a serious problem, but somewhere the concept of dealing with your own problems got obscured.

Depression is a very real problem in this day and age, and one that requires proper treatment so that the sufferers don't end up killing themselves or hurting themselves intentionally.
But to glamourise it like these people have (I don't mean the parody, I watched the real video version of the "Organisation") and to make it into a big song-and-dance sort of thing isn't really the right way to go about it.
I've been depressed before and I've hit lows I couldn't have imagined or dreamed up if I had tried, but in my experience I would never ever have wanted a big show to be made out of my situation like these guys are.

Did I whinge about my depression? NO
Did I constantly go on about it to everyone? NO
Did I try and hide it? YES
Was I ashamed of it? YES
Would I EVER have wanted the public to make a huge scene and a trend out of my problem? NO

Depression doesn't require a trendy call to attention like this.
I can sympathise with those who created it and those who want to follow it, but for me this "organisation" is going about everything in all the wrong directions.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it
