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: [most girl excuse to get off sports class]FAILED!!!!

That excuse really didn't work? Damn, this seems kinda out of control.
If you are physically unable to do something, or if doing it will make you extremely uncomfortable/feel sick how dare they try and force you? I especially feel awful for people with asthma. At my school that apparently wasn't a good excuse either, and someone I knew was actually laying on the ground trying to breathe because of it.

Gym is ridiculous.It really should be optional in my opinion.

My posts are usually lengthy, and I can't help it much... Sorry.

Re: [most girl excuse to get off sports class]FAILED!!!!

I have a story that somewhat relates to this: There was this asshole in 5th grade that was in my class, and was being a general douchebag (looked like one too). Once in PE class, he threw a soft foam ball so hard at my face that it hurt. I had to sit out in the hall to recuperate (I wasn't in trouble). God! Maybe it was because I was new, from across town. Maybe it's because of our opposing characters. He's real witty to boot, also. He wasn't in my class next year, and I tried to ignore him more, but he still found a way to get me miffed (and now in trouble too).

I WANT TO FUCKING CARVE HIS FACE OFF AND FUCKING STUFF IT IN THE SAME FOAM BALL HE HIT ME WITH THEN STUFF IT UP HIS FUCKING NOSTRILFUCKFUCKFUCKFURUDIGHPIUDHGUIHIURHGUIREGHUWRHIUGHUIOWRYH

Fu Upyours Ranting Rocket Shooting Stabhead Grindteeth Evil Evil Evil


Sorry about the reaction. But he's STILL at my school! And i'm NOT making friends with that cuntlicker. EVER.

Basically, he was like a bad teacher, except he was a student.

Xguy Wrote:I think you have a point there. The saying "You can tell people the truth, but you can't make people understand it." is true in your case. Your gym teacher says that exercise is good for you during any time, even menstruation and PMS, but there is no sufficent evidence that can make you understand this. If your gym teacher is to ever force you to go to gym even if you have PMS, say this: "Why are you forcing me to go to gym even with PMS? Tell me a reason that I can understand and I will go to gym."

Oh, and if it's some vague and stupid reason that you don't accept, then do what you want.

Epic bump is epic.

Oh, and a being on your period isn't even an acceptable excuse for swimming at our school.

Epic hygiene fail.

Oh my god.

The fuck? Bring this to the attention of some big health people.

Anything that ever happened or will... one condition, it has to be amazing.

Re: [most girl excuse to get off sports class]FAILED!!!!

Well, we're actually allowed to sit... err... stand out. In the pool room (it's probably a solid 95 degrees in there) we have to stand up, I almost fell over from heat exhaustion one time, and a friend of mine had to go to the nurse. If we sit, we get yelled at to stand up again.

We get a 0 for the day unless we wake up early to go for a makeup.

Still a virgin and can't wear a tampon? Too fucking bad.

Now, with all that, I'm sure half the girls just decided to say fuck it and go in anyway. So, while they don't force you in the pool, they do a damn good job of making it your only choice. Note the word choice... that damn deadly word they use to get out of lawsuits.

As you mentioned one point there, you might as well without exagerration be the only one who applies, or gives a fuck... None

Exactly why I'm screwed. Oh well, swimmings over anyway. I actually had to go early one day because of some freshmen meeting, and she counted it against me, stupid bitch.

Re: [most girl excuse to get off sports class]FAILED!!!!

Finally someone who actually shares the same views as me. How come it’s easier to find more sensible girls on the internet yet in real life there mostly white thrash bitches? To clarify I'm white. Your P.E teacher is an apathetic cunt, school sports are fucking futile I absolutely despise them with a vengeance out of my whole class I'm the one who loathes sports...Generally it is because I'm really bad at sports and the fact people somehow have a lust for bullying me, that why I don't do them sports bring me to the brink of insanity. I'm not morbidly obese I'm just lazy though I don't do sports I use alternative methods for getting exercise and gaining muscle. Your teacher is a stupid whore, you should've just told her to fuck off she has no right to treat people like that I'd suggest you do all you can to get her fired as people like that really grind my gears. By the way you don't have to censor yourself on this site were all for free speeches here Biggrin. Also out of curiosity what part of Ireland are you from, my mum was born in Galway Biggrin. Hug
