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.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Yeah, actually, it still is.

At the very least, the people who are fucked up from birth are a pain to everybody and don't have a tragic story along with it. Oh, you had a third foot protruding from your head since birth? That's so sad! Fuck that. You're a freak. Die.

How is being fucked up from birth not a tragic story?
Because it's genetic, or some fuck up on the parent's part. If it's the latter, let them decide.
Okay then.
Who decides? What is a deformity that deserves death? Scientists. Anything genetic.
Physical deformities? Mental Deformities? 'Anything genetic'
What about a predisposition to some disease? If we found out that gene, should we kill those who have it? Yes.
What about skin color? People of different skin tone are not necessary now-we can monitor our environment. And it just causes social tension- so death. Lolwat? Race doesn't mean jack shit. There's slight differences throughout all the races, but nothing nearly so major. They all have the same potential, some just have a lower natural minimum.
Homosexuality- the majority don't agree with it. It causes more social tension. Abort all babies with "the gay gene." You're a moron. The 'gay gene'? No one, and I mean no one, has made any advancement into the 'nature vs. nurture' argument in this one.
Gender- are there now too many females or males? Only allow the other gender to live. This is just fucking moronic and I'm not going to answer it.

Welcome the master race- genetically engineered to benefit society in the way the government believes necessary. The slippery slope may be just that, an illogical fear. But when you think about who'd have the power to end these peoples' lives-most likely the government- I think that's actually something to be avoided. Based on science, you jackass. Not the government.

I think for now, it's better for us to avoid killing 'undesirables'. Yes, having a severely disabled child can take things away from the parents' lives, but not from society overall, AND ITS STILL THEIR CHIlD. Unless you're looking at it pragmatically and soullessly, with humans as mere products for society to gain from. In that case, there's a great manual called A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley- might want to look it up. Souls do not exist. I've read Brave New World. That's an entirely different story. We're not scientifically producing beneficial humans, we're killing off humans who have genetic diseases.


Did some mentally retarded child beat you up in elementary school?
