its really not funny.
i have heard the jokes. heck, i've been told the jokes and i've always taken them with a "they just don't understand" type of attitude. but the jokes aren't funny. i do support to write love on her arms and have posted other blog posts about the organization. as a person who overcame her cutting addiction a few years ago, i don't mind the jokes so much. God has given me the peace and strength to move on. but not everyone is at a place where they can tolerate jokes about something so personal. so please i plead with you, be careful. if you don't know the person's past, just keep the "jokes" to yourself. don't make yourself another reason for a person to feel the need to harm themself.
