WWTF: Story Behind My Scar

As always I have scoured the Twitter Machine for the most ‘wtf?” tweets I can find in order to present them to you fine folks.

The trending topic that stood out the most today was #StoryBehindMyScar. Be forewarned that there were a lot of tweets about self mutilation. I have my own views on that, which are neither here nor there, but the one in particular I chose was not so much because they were talking about it (on a public pedestal none-the-less) but was because they said doing so was not ‘attention seeking if they tweeted it’. I’m self-aware enough to admit that this blog is definitely my way of seeking attention and validation. Yes, I need you to love me. Yes, I need you to read my blog. Yes, I get sad when my views drop consecutively for a couple of days, so sue me. At least I can admit it.

By that logic I believe I’m being objective enough to say that telling the entire goddamn world that you used to cut yourself while participating in a nationally trending topic is a little attention-seeking. I understand the need to bring awareness to issues such as that but there are much more effective ways to do so. /EndRant

On a lighter note, I bring you the WTFery:

Today, instead of writing my commentary, why don’t you leave yours? I’m interested to see what comes to your mind in comparison to what came to mine.

#StoryBehindMyScar is trending. People are responding in 140 charaters. It took Harry Potter seven, ridiculously long, books. Drama queen.—

I used to cut. I was bullied at school. No one cares about me. But Justin saved me. Justin was the reason why i stopped. #StoryBehindMyScar—
