Hi! Welcome to me talking about whatever I want! Today I'll be talking about "Traumacore" Part 2

We left off by saying that Traumacore is an expression of trauma through art.

We left off by saying that Traumacore is an expression of trauma through art. Just now, different from something like art therapy there's a community online and you're just not alone! So what makes Traumacore different from the other aesthetics?

Weirdcore usually uses strange images or as the weirdcore subreddit describes it as "An image that gives off a strange vibe".

Weirdcore usually uses strange images or as the weirdcore subreddit describes it as "An image that gives off a strange vibe". It's made to make you feel uncomfortable. They use imaginary like disembodied eyes, mouths and even blocks of texts and shapes that seems familiar to Traumacore.

⚠️TW⚠️ Some people might be sensitive to some of these images....

However, the themes of childhood abuse don't seem to be prevalent here. .

However, the themes of childhood abuse don't seem to be prevalent here. But the themes of disassociating, not feeling comfortable on one's own mind and mental illness is.

I'm not saying that every aesthetic needs some kind of connection to a mental illness i order to be valid...

I'm not saying that every aesthetic needs some kind of connection to a mental illness i order to be valid... ....in fact a lot of the weirdcore posts have actually more in common with nostalgia or horror.

Some people depict running away from cryptids. The phrase "Do You Remember" or a forceful plead to leave the image itself or leave reality and enter the image.

Some people depict running away from cryptids. The phrase "Do You Remember" or a forceful plead to leave the image itself or leave reality and enter the image. Usedcore has a closer relationship to that cute pastel pink imaginary and the characters that symbolize the innocence of childhood.

It's a showcase of the contrast between the abuse they they'd gone through and the trauma that they deal with daily.

It's a showcase of the contrast between the abuse they they'd gone through and the trauma that they deal with daily. The cute imaginary that they represent their childhood with....hence the name "Usedcore".

They feel used, they feel abused...they feel disposable.

They feel used, they feel abused...they feel disposable. Emptycore is pretty much liminal spaces and Weirdcore mixed together so I won't dwell on that one too much.

They feel used, they feel abused...they feel disposable. Emptycore is pretty much liminal spaces and Weirdcore mixed together so I won't dwell on that one too much. Sadcore is just the same as Traumacore but a lot more subdued to include a multitude of mental illnesses.

While these are all depictions of mental illnesses...What made Traumacore stick out to me the most out of all of these?

While these are all depictions of mental illnesses...What made Traumacore stick out to me the most out of all of these? Well...I think it's mainly the controversy about the aesthetic that people have been very vocal about....

Before going any further, let me explain what Sanrio is:

Before going any further, let me explain what Sanrio is: Sanrio is a Japanese company that makes a lot of cute art, usually towards (but not limited to) kids such as Hello Kitty.

I see a concern from both the Sanrio community and the Traumacore community and them somehow being connected to DDLG (Daddy Dom Little Girl).

I see a concern from both the Sanrio community and the Traumacore community and them somehow being connected to DDLG (Daddy Dom Little Girl). DDLG is basically a fetish that consists of a male partner being the "daddy figure" and a women being the young girl.

I think that you really shouldn't mix those two together.

I think that you really shouldn't mix those two together. I think this because Traumacore is based on actual abuse and, from what I know about DDLG, is just a fetishization of that.

Art therapy is used with children, adolescents, adults, older adults, groups, families, veterans and people with chronic health issues to asses and treat the following:

Art therapy and can be very beneficial to people. Other times, it might not help. But a lot of the times, people with trauma, are just left undiagnosed.

The only criteria for enjoying Traumacore would be that you have to have experienced trauma yourself according to the "aesthetics" wiki.

A bigger issue arises when you start questioning as to this aesthetic actually helps their mentalities.

What's fascinating as well is the overwhelming amount of people that romanticize the "aesthetic" and fetishize the mental illnesses.

What's fascinating as well is the overwhelming amount of people that romanticize the "aesthetic" and fetishize the mental illnesses. A lot of the times it's seen as "different" or edgy...trying to stick out and trying to feel different from everyone so.....

....a lot of teenagers are drawn to that who never actually suffered from trauma but just want to be seen as this very "dark" and "mysterious" person.....and it's very fucked up to be quite honest.

...but the Traumacore community has taken great measures to make sure they stay as very separate communities online.

...but the Traumacore community has taken great measures to make sure they stay as very separate communities online. So the question still stands: "Is Traumacore bad?"

I would say no.

I would say no. I think that this is an interesting way for artists to vent their thoughts and feel like they're a part of a community instead of just being alone with their thoughts of trauma.

....I think it's great for you to express your mental illness through art.

....I think it's great for you to express your mental illness through art. I'm not a part of the community, but I do appreciate it.

....I think it's great for you to express your mental illness through art. I'm not a part of the community, but I do appreciate it. I do hope that this becomes more than just an "aesthetic"......

...I hope it actually becomes a way for people to deal with their trauma(s), their traumatic experiences, in a very healthy way.....while also seeking the help they need. Thank You!
