I made this debate because in school they take bullying seriously I think bullying is wrong,but people shouldn't cut themselves for help because it makes it worse. Sometimes people do it for attention but if you want help you should ask.I understand it can be hard to tell another person but when you tell people you cut yourself they don't help you they judge you I don't know if i did this to help but i'm trying to set the record straight period--}.

If you're arguing that we shouldn't care when people cut themselves, then I would have to disagree with you. If your main point is that cutting makes things "worse", then you're not really giving enough merit for your point.

We should care when people cut themselves because, not only is it dangerous, but it can actually be a cry for help in some individuals who self-harm. Self-harm can also lead to other things, such as suicide, which should never be taken lightly. Are you implying, by your comments, that we should completely disregard people who slice themselves because it makes it worse? Suicide makes it worse, should we then ignore them because they should come to us rather than be judged?

Reasons for voting decision: I absolutely hate it when people make contentious claims, then when faced with strong and elegant arguments (like Con's), disappear. All points to Con.
