• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I'm not decided on jumping or hanging yet, but I'm leaning towards jumping because I'm too terrified of being "saved" during hanging. If hanging was my only option, is a scarf good enough? 100% cotton or polyester? Which is stronger? I tested out one scarf by putting all of my weight on it for 2 minutes and it didn't tear. But I must've taken the tag off a while ago so I couldn't find out if it was cotton or polyester. I had to cut the scarf off because the knot had tightened too much and I didn't want to go through the trouble of undoing it before my parents come home, and I couldn't just leave a noose in the middle of the living room. So, opinions on cotton or polyester? I could buy a rope but I get so nervous walking into the store. I can't bring myself to place the rope on the checkout counter. So I really, really just want to use a scarf if I have to hang myself. Will it be enough to hold my weight? And what material?

It depends and what you weight. But usually it will work, although I´d prefer a rope to bring more pressure on the neck and cut off the blood flow to the head. But there are many woman that have died hanging from a scarf.

I'm not sure, I have heard of people using scarves, belts, etc. however if in doubt I would go for something stronger. Rope isn't expensive at all and is designed to withstand loads unlike clothing. I would be too scared of brain damage to go along with something that I wasn't sure if it was strong enough.
