Tumblr prohibits sites that promote and glorify self-harm, including eating disorders, cutting, and suicide. It makes exceptions for sites that offer support and help for people suffering, but it's often hard to tell which side of the rules blogs fall on. Enforcement is lax. Some sites get around the ban with quick disclaimers claiming they aren't promoting the behavior and information about where to get help. Others, such as Depression and Disorders , which has gained 1, followers since it went up in April, don't even bother. The year-old girl behind Depression and Disorders blogs about her own cutting, plans of suicide, and struggles with an eating disorder. She asks readers to submit confessions, which she mixes in with her own. They send in questions, which she responds to on her site. Sometimes she encourages readers to seek help from therapists or parents, but she also offers techniques on cutting, both directly or through photos.

Emma's mom first noticed the cuts when Emma was doing the dishes one night. Emma told her mom that their cat had scratched her. Her mom seemed surprised that the cat had been so rough, but she didn't think much more about it. Emma's friends had noticed something strange as well. Even when the weather was hot, Emma wore long-sleeved shirts. She had become secretive, too, like something was bothering her. But Emma couldn't seem to find the words to tell her mom or her friends that the marks on her arms were from something that she had done.
