CUTTING- Do you think cutting has been glorified in which has ignited a trend among our youth today. Videos, like Pink's "Perfect"; bringing awareness or igniting a trend?
I am wondering the opinons of the public on the very serious matter of cutting. One of the most physically and emotionally traumatizing symptoms of certain mental illnesses. Videos, like Pink's "Perfect", show an emotionally distressed girl cutting the word perfect into her arm while in the bathtub. Do you think this provokes the youth of today to mimic such behavior if in a similar situation or is it raising awareness about a real problem in how generations today deal with deep emotional dispair?
Please show care in answering this question and refrain from encouraging anyone to self- harm. Your opinons in every spectrum is appreciated and acknowleged, however, this is a very sensitive matter to many people out there.
