RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

2012 Republican candidates

So, there's been loads of talk, arguments, n' shit over the Republican field vying for the nomination in 2012. ITT: We discuss them.

My views:

Mitt Romney: Slicker than butter without being sleazy, Mitt certainly knows what he's doing, is pretty sane and doesn't seem anywhere near as radical as some. Still, since he's been in bed with WWASP for some time, I'd hate to see him on the ticket.

Rick Parry: Basically W Bush v2.0. A somewhat aggressive career politician but he doesn't seem like all that good of one. Not much to say here. Seems to resonate well with the sort of crowd that liked W and his views, for obvious reasons.

Ron Paul: I don't agree with him on a lot of stuff, namely completely eliminating taxes and much of the federal government, but he seems to have a pretty good head on his shoulders and I definitely stand with him on reducing our bloated defense budget to actual defense instead of micromanaging every country under the sun. I kinda wish he'd win just to see how everyone would react, lol.

Rick Santorum: Doesn't seem to know a whole lot about government at the federal level. Anti-gay like his life depends on it. I'm ashamed to share the same state as him.

Newt Gingrich: He seems kinda stuck in the '90s. Good if you're trying to relive your childhood, bad if you're trying to get on the presidential ballot. Also doesn't seem nearly as radical as, well, the radical ones in the field. Not a whole lot to say here.

Herman Cain: A business man, not a politician. Good in that he's not a complete and utter professional liar, bad in that he doesn't understand how complicated shit can get. You can't just say 9-9-9, turn the taxes to that overnight and have everything be wonderful. Cain also doesn't really seem to understand foreign policy an' that sorta stuff. Also, you can't go titty fiddling to random women and expect to get away with it. LOLDONE

Jon Huntsman: Sane, moderate-ish, and relatively reasonable. Seems to have a pretty good understanding of stuff. Has no chance of getting the nomination, though.

Michele Bachmann: Fucking insane religious nutjob. 'Nuff said.

Hidden stuff:
