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.

Doesn't Christianity Encourage suicide and abortion?

i mean, if when we die and we go to heaven, wouldn't it be nice to escape from all this bullshit? and wouldn't you want to protect your unborn baby from poverty, suffering, torment, etc? wouldnt you want to guarantee your baby goes to heaven, pure and free from fear?

Prolly. Which is one of over 9000 reasons why Christianity is a stupid fairy tale / tool of opression.

Re: Doesn't Christianity Encourage suicide and abortion?

That's probably why they added a little clause saying if you kill yourself, you go straight to hell. Otherwise more people would do it Razz

But meh, I think there's tons of "convenient" scare stories in that bible type thing, and that very little of it should be taken overly seriously.

Re: Doesn't Christianity Encourage suicide and abortion?

In my opinion, no.

The reason many people commit suicide is that they can't take it anymore. It does not matter what happens next for them, they just want out, to leave things behind and cease to exist.

People who abort (in my opinion, again), can't support the child, got raped, underaged and tell you what: You are killing the child to abort it, no? They would feel pain nonetheless, negating the baby was "pure and free from fear."

Re: Doesn't Christianity Encourage suicide and abortion?

I'm against abortion and I know Christianity dosent approve abortion, its just our stupid pope misleads ppl just because he read something from the bible, misquoted it, and screws ppl over to promote his OWN interests.

the bible wasn't written by God

Hidden stuff:
TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.
