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.

I'm no longer curious, because you made the claim and you can't back it up so that means you've got nothing.

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

Utopiafrets, this demon in my soul does not tell me to do evil things, and it was not possession. I can say to all of you that the demon in my soul used to be evil, he was punished for it, so in this life he wants to be good and make up for the bad things he has done. I also must say that not all demons are evil, not all demons are with Satan. You guys probably never knew that.

I'm a therian, not a human, and I'm proud of it. No matter what others say, I will be strong.

I'm sorry, are you serious? Actually, genuinely serious?

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

Yes, I am genuinely serious, I'm not joking. Now, it doesn't really have to matter much that I'm different, all that matters is that we all hate school and that is the thing we have in common.

Sounds exciting. I wish I had a demon to keep me company. How would I get myself one of these things?

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

As I have said already, I am only telling those that I believe are trustworthy. So far, I have only told one person, but I'm deciding who I should tell next. I'm not saying that you're not trustworthy, I'm just saying that I want and need to be careful with who I trust.

Sounds fair. It's not something you should tell everyone, no matter how much they ask

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

You'll have to forgive some of our members for their trolling. While (and trust me when I say this) they're not nearly as bad as some of the assholes who will come around here every so often to stir up a shitstorm, they can get annoying. I still love them all, though.

I'm... Open-minded, to say the least. I've also heard about therians before from someone who claimed to be one. Now, whether or not they exist, and whether or not that particular person was what (s)he claimed to be, neither is really my concern. I just enjoy hearing about intriguing and uncommon things.

In any case, welcome to SS. Here's to having a good run here.

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

Man, I don't even give a fuck that s/he's a therian. It doesn't affect me. You can fuck horses for all I care. Shit, you can believe in fairies and vampires. Some of the coolest people I've ever met did. I don't give a damn about who/what you believe you are, or actually are. You could be a fucking space lizard. I don't give a damn, so long as you're a generally cool person.

But one thing, one thing bothers me about the individual with the funny name that seems like it was composed out of the names of a bunch of planets from Star Wars.

They're too fucking stiff. They dance around the topic and aren't telling people to fuck off when they give them shit. Nobody gives a fuck what you say or do on SS. There are no nazi mods who'll ban you if you step out of line. I can call every single mod a dick and get away with it. You can too. Speak the fuck up, stand the fuck up, and get some guts.

I don't care how the fuck strange you are. Unless you're going to tell me to fuck off, I'm going to mess with you.

Welcome to SS, here's your helmet.

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

I guess so, but I plan to do lots of practice and do a physical shift sometime. Also, Halfred, I have to say that is a good idea. I will now insult anybody back that insults me for my beliefs, I won't stand for it any longer.

Because that will totally help to convince people not to degrade your beliefs. Very intelligent.

Example:

Hendorne - "I believe I'm a therian."
Random - "Lol, furfag"
Hendorne - "Well, FUCK YOU YOU COCKSUCKER."
Random - "Lol, butthurt furfag going BAAAAAWWWWWW"

Consider a more civil approach. Or, better yet, ignore them.

hmm, who should I listen to? Leon, or Halfred? I guess I'm gonna have to decide. Although, I have to say Leon, your argument is convincing and is a better idea than Halfred's. I guess I'll keep being civil as I have been and I could just ignore Halfred if he insults me for not taking his side.

Well yeah, but when a person lists the country they live in, unless they've explicitly stated otherwise you naturally assume the language of that country is their primary one.

Unless there is evidence to the contrary, no?

I asked because the newbie's manner of speaking is highly stilted and formal, leading me to believe that he does not yet have a lot of experience with informal, everyday English.

Re: Hi Guys, I'm not normal

Or that's just how he types. My friends say I sound like I speak English as a second language because I sound so formal all the time. So it's possible that's just how he talks, and he's just typing the same way.
