I never knew her personally, but from what I do know, she lived in her own tragedy. The tucute community, which prides itself on being so grand and helpful, took advantaged of a young lady in a bad state. I feel like all of us here wished we could get through to her. My condolences go out to the family of Holly. She deserved to grow up happy and get a normal chance at life.

I did not know Holly and I had found out about her death through another account. Though I did not know her it is truly horrible the things that have happened to her and the possible causes. Holly most likely would’ve hated me for my stances but that will never get in my way of mourning the death of an innocent, young teen. I hope her family is doing well and even though her death was a while ago, I will always have her on my mind and I will always believe that she deserved better. I’m so sorry for your loss and I hope you’re doing well and know that even today, she is living on.

I'm what she would consider a political enemy. I found Holly on tumblr through one of her particularly hateful and nonsensical posts. The fact that this culture is part of what drove her to suicide makes me sad beyond belief. Young women and men are corrupted by this stuff every day and it's only getting worse. Holly was a victim, just not in the way she thought she was. She was a far worse victim than she was aware of. She didn't deserve this. May she rest in peace.

I didn't really know that she existed until after her death, I found her blog after the post that she died went around. She deserved to grow out of all this labeling and Tumblr stuff. She deserved to grow up and love herself.

I found this blog through the discussion on Reddit and it broke my heart when I found the last post. I love my sister so much that if she died I wouldn't know what to do. I am very sorry for your loss

No one should die this young. I genuinely hope Holly's family finds sollice, and that this eventually won't have to be a problem anymore. Much love.

Though I personally wasn't a huge fan of Holly and her antics, the news of her death does sadden me.
