Question for my followers…
[TW:Self harm discussion]
I’ve wondered this for a while and I’d like to see what y’all’s thoughts are on it. There are times when I see discussions/posts about scars, and I was wondering I have a right to comment on these things in the context of talking about scars if not necessarily their origins? Because the vast majority of those posts are about self harm and for me, my scars are the result of birth defects/surgery, but they shape so much of the landscape of my body. I don’t want to be appropriating someone else’s conversation and I don’t want people to feel as if I’m ignoring their scars.
