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: What are some of your most controversial opinions?

I'm more and more agnostic, I've almost stopped giving a fuck about god and I'm starting to question whether he exists or not. Used to be christian... I was split off by believing that fearing God isn't loving him and is not worth it
I don't like organized religion, hate what the churches (christian, muslim, judaism) have done...
I believe religion has been used as a tool to control populations, much like school, in several cases.

I am anti-school

I'm between pro-choice and pro-life in the abortion issue. If you didn't want a baby, why have unprotected sex in the first place? If the protection (condoms, not really pills) fails, or you're raped, then, well, I guess it should be allowed lol. Isn't it possible to get rid of the baby and make it grow outside of her mother?
I dunno lol.

Hemp, not necessarily marijuana, seems to be very useful for many things. I READ SOMEWHERE that it was all planned by oil companies or something to make bullshit media about how marijuana is worse than all other drugs and should be outlawed as to not allow them to lose their fucking business. If marijuana is illegal, why isn't illegal too? The only thing I have against smoked drugs is second-hand smoke, in the more long-term, extreme cases.

Fuck PETA, they're basically a religion whose gods are animals.


Anti-copyright, pro-piracy

Anti-boot camp. You shouldn't just be shoved into prison because your parents want to get rid of you.

Discrimination, including all discrimination based on age, is fucked up.
"Minors" shouldn't be considered "minors" anymore. A series of questions might arise, but anyway, this bullshit rule didn't exist hundreds of years ago. Even though there might have been some ageism, there wasn't as much, you were more judged by your skill, talent, and character. If you put out a fire, what do you replace it with?

Anarchy in a "group" may work, I'm an anarchist individualist myself

I used to be semi-anti-gay rights, mostly perhaps because of what my parents said, but not at all anymore. Fuck "organized, legal marriage" anyway. It isn't my problem what others are doing, it's an infringement of freedom to control what people can or can't do like that.
