By Draco Malfoy,
Yes, I know that a girl in my band does it as well, and a boy in my band used to do it. But I have never talked to them about it, and I don’t think they know I do it. Since she cuts her arms it’s very visible, so a lot of people knows about it and find it not so weird. I think the fact that it’s socially accepted among my friends has made it easier for me to go on with it, I keep telling myself that it’s a normal thing to do. But when I started I didn’t know anyone.
