I imagine myself covered with blood, broken but transfigured and in agreement with the world, both as prey and as a jaw of time, which ceaselessly kills and is ceaselessly killed.
u know how sometimes if u eat too much of a certain food you get sick of it
like my mom used to make spaghetti several times a week for YEARS bc it was quick and easy so now im kinda “meh” about spaghetti
you know that feeling??
that’s how i feel about white cis male protagonists
you pUT IT IN WORDS
bad people shouldnt be allowed to have clear skin or good hair or nice jaw lines or green eyes
It’s a myth that white teenage girls are most likely to be cutters. In fact, black teenagers are most at risk, and our community doesn’t know it.
"The most likely group to self-harm is black teenagers, specifically black teenage boys, and they’re getting younger and younger in the doing. Most of them aren’t just using one method of self-injury. They’re burning their skin. Cutting. Pulling their hair. Punching themselves. Banging their heads into walls. The mental health treatment they need is not only undervalued in our community; it’s expensive and inaccessible.”
…Pulling hair or pulling it out? I still do the latter. I’m not as bad as I used to be, but it was a major reason for locing my hair.
We need this conversation now
Well this explains my former punching and scratching. :(
