what purpose does telling people their scars arent beautiful even serve like… you think there are a whole bunch of impressionable teenagers lining up to scar themselves because they think it will make them hot n glamorous? people who self harm do so for myriad reasons but they generally are aware that other people think cutting makes them disfigured/broken/whatever, you don’t need to shit on them for saying “you know what, fuck that, im beautiful and my scars are beautiful” and eking out a tiny bit of god damn positivity from the experience
