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.

Re: Obama overturns Bush policy on stem cells

eh i dont think it matters. embryonic shows the least promise out of all the stem cells.

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.

Re: Obama overturns Bush policy on stem cells

Politics should never have anything to do with SCIENCE, and religion(or morales) should stand far from science.

Obama did the right thing there but I still believe that politics should stand away from science.

Finally. It's nice having a President who won't just pray for the diseases to go away.

I think Buenaventura Durruti is a pretty cool guy. eh kills fascists and doesnt afraid of ruins.

Re: Obama overturns Bush policy on stem cells

Finally. Stem cells have alot of promise and we don't need politics or christfags getting in the way.
"well we should give everyone a fair chance at life" uhm the embryos are going to be destroyed anyway, why not put them to good use? Because it would prove god is not in charge that's fucking why.

Yeah, except curing blindness, and genetic disease.

Well no shit, it's hard to make scientific progress with something if its illegal for you to do experiments with it! Hell, if we banned solid fuel, then rockets would be a pretty useless invention when it comes to space travel.

This. I can't fathom how anyone with half a brain can say stem cell research is bad. It's not like it's going to encourage abortions. They happen anyway. Shrug

well no shit, even before it was illeagal it didnt show as much promise as the others. the one thats working the best is adult stem cells.
