I don't usually do this sort of thing, but staying quiet makes me part of the problem rather than the solution. I've been seeing a lot of images of body mods going around Facebook with a rather negative connotation - whether it be something to do with mental issues, personal choice, or if you feel like fucking these people based purely on their appearance.
People in the body mod community are constantly being attacked, instead of educating ourselves, we choose to point and laugh. Something is different from our main stream, so we tear it down. What is the fucking point in that? I know members of the body mod community and they are wonderful, kind, patient, and sound individuals. They have to be spokesmodels for education because they are constantly explaining themselves.
If you aren't into body modification, cool, that's fine. But please don't delight in ridiculing people based purely on their physical features. You are robbing yourself of having an opportunity to truly know an individual.
