Just take a few breaths and try to calm down. For right now take a look at the Alternatives to Self Harm thread here. That might give you a couple of ideas on how to resist the urges you're feeling right now.
Could you talk to your mom about what your dad is saying? Maybe she could stick up for your wearing them. Why doesn't he like them? Maybe you could wear a lightweight longsleeved shirt instead?
Hang in there, okay? There are people who care about you. I care about you and I don't even know you. Things are going to get better. PM/VM me if you need to.

I'm really sorry that you're feeling this way. Just bring a big coat and wrap yourself up in it. Be cozy and cuddle with yourself. It sounds dumb but sometimes taking care of myself like that helps me calm down a little bit. Sometime when you're feeling a little better could you try to talk to them about your style? Just because you dress a certain way, doesn't mean you're a bad kid or you think any differently than anyone else.
What's making you feel worse right now? Just the way your parents are acting?

Is there any way you can get away from them for a little while so you can try to calm down?

That's good! Just remember to breathe and try some of the alternatives listed in the thread I posted. I'm really sorry you're feeling this way right now.
Is there a friend or school counselor you could talk to about how you've been feeling? Since your mom knows about your cutting, could you talk to her about seeing a counselor or therapist? Talking to someone can be really helpful. You don't deserve to feel this way. Take care of yourself!

Well that's good. Does talking to your therapist help you feel better?
Maybe you could get involved in something in your community where you could meet other people your own age? Volunteering somewhere is always a good place to meet people because you already know that you have something in common (whatever the thing is you're volunteering for). Just a suggestion!
I hope you start feeling better!

What did you say to her?
There's always hope, hun. Even if you can't feel it right now. You're not alone.
