I just want to say your doing an amazing thing by helping your friend Amanda do the right thing, keep it up!
In modern society kids have developed an immature state of social exclusion. They find harmful things funny, because it makes them feel more powerful and feel less self conscious. It empowers them by making themselves an alpha in a group of friends which they all try to achieve. As they are, each one try's to do the most harmful thing; the one who does is considered the "coolest" or most popular.
In other words, they hurt other people to make themselves feel good and it shows dominance over their friends.
You should decide who your real friends are and stick with them. Popularity is definitely something everyone wants, but it mostly comes from physical appeal. (the hottest girls are usually the popular ones).
Talk to your popular friends and try to convince them to stop harassing your other friends. If they don't stop, terminate your friendship and stay friends with Amanda.
Also, if you like Nick and he's abusing Amanda, there shouldn't be any reason that you like him. Find another guy who has sympathy for others, or he will treat you the same way he treats Amanda.
Remember, the most popular or hottest guys shouldn't be your first choice for relationships. Most of them are in relationships only for sex (but of course not all are).
your friend needs a friend. It sounds like her boyfriend isn't being a good one. Telling her not to follow through with the sex thing is a good thing also. If this continues, And it probably will. A good friend would let her friends parents know what is going on. The self harm thing is not funny and it is very dangerous. I'd be very offended if someone was making jokes like that around me.
You would help them more by telling a school counselor,Your parents or CPS. They need help or really could be a suicide case.I am a past Christian youth counselor and recognize they need help and their home situation needs to be looked into right away.If can't tell the above teacher as teachers are ordered to get help for them and must be as soon as possible because a very large per cent of those who threaten killing themselves go and do just that so it means that they need immediate help, and yes being their friend may save their life. keep it up and report it asap.
Personally I think that it's sad that people make these kind of jokes because most of my friends have or still do self harm. My boyfriend used to self harm loads but he doesn't as much anymore because I said to him (and some of my friends) that if they didn't stop I'd eat less or harm myself in some way. This has actually made more than half of them stop because I helped them realise the effects that they have on others. This probably won't help anyone but I felt like my story could be helpful although I highly doubt it. If anyone wants to talk I know what it's like to self harm, to starve yourself, to have depression and anxiety. I know the pain.
