LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE.
STOP THE GUNS.
Obviously guns are bad, and shouldn’t be used, but the girl in the second pic is a lot older than the little baby in the first one and has probably made the decision herself to have her ears pierced.
Have any of you had your ears pierced as a baby? Are you glad your parents made the decision, or would you have preferred to wait until you could make the decision yourself?
My dad had my ears pierced when I was a baby, my mum went through the roof.XD I’m glad though, would have preferred to have had it done by needle rather than gun, but it just meant my ears were already entirely healed by the time I wanted to start stretching.:P
Out of all my piercings, my mum hates my stretched ears the most, so any time my dad complains to her about my piercings she just says “Well you’re the one who had her ears pierced when she was two!”
I haaaate seeing very little children and babies with ear piercings :lol it takes away from the innocence imo. When I was about 10 I ‘decided’ (sort of.. my mum has a very naggy friend and I didn’t care that much so gave in) to get mine pierced.. but I would have been quite pissed if someone had decided that for me :P Especially still in nappies!
41% of people believe that self-harm is selfish. 55% believe that it is stupid. 43% know someone that has self-harmed. One in ten people have harmed by the age of sixteen.Self-harm does not make you suicidal. It does not make you emo. It is simply a way that many use to rid themselves of stress or pain or whatever it may be. Over 3 million people in the US have self-harmed or still do.Cutting is not just a girl’s disorder. Anyone can do it. Males, females, and persons that don’t fit into the gender binary. And it is not just teens, either. Both Princess Diana and Johnny Depp have gone through it. The person who always seems happy could be victim to it. Anyone.There are other forms of self-harm besides cutting or mutilation. There’s CSP; a disorder where you’ll pick at your skin, bite your skin, bite your nails, or pull out hair, usually when you’re bored or due to perfectionism. There’s also burning yourself, and other things that could cause injury such as hitting yourself or other objects.Some people don’t realize they’re doing it.Some people don’t think it’s wrong. Some people become addicted. People don’t hide their cuts or marks hoping someone will find them unless they actually want help to get better. It’s often hidden because they’re afraid of someone seeing. People don’t show off their scars because they’re cool. They’re just there. And there’s no point in hiding them. Often people become proud of their scars because they know they’re past it.An orange ribbon is used as a self-harm awareness symbol. Those suffering from it or have been through it or support it often wear one. To Write Love On Her Arms is amazing for what they do. They help people get past their self-harm or addictions or suicidal thoughts. Many people don’t support TWLOHA, but I think it’s an amazing cause.You do not have to have gone through anything like this to support it. Sometimes all people want to know is that they’re not alone. Don’t judge someone based on the marks they have on their arms. You don’t know what they’ve been through. Rather, be proud of them for making through it. Life can be a bitch.
