We get more Self Harm submissions than anything else, so let’s discuss why they’re not being posted.
A user submitted an example with this attached to it:
My opinion on my scar is that it is beautiful. It shows a time where I was going through a lot and is now healed and fading. I dont see it has “romanticizing self-harm”, I see it as something that shows that I am stronger now.
And I understand how someone can feel this way, however Self Harm Scars are currently being romanticized by a large portion of Tumblr users, and posting such scars here would help perpetuate the aberrant behavior. Meaning is relative, and we have to take the safer road in this instance.
BEHOLD! The lamest scar in America! Okay, not really. :) This is a surgical scar from the correction of a fractured patella. (Thanks Kate!)
