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: queer school rules

Aren't you able to do something against teachers destroying students property?
That would be fucking wrong.

RE: queer school rules

There's been several cases where kids were kicked out of class either because they "looked uninterested" or said that they didn't feel like doing their work.

I'd bring up with the staff what the point is in having the machine if no one is allowed to use it. But I bet they buy from it. Hypocrites.

RE: queer school rules

are uniform rules just piss me off.

I had a orthodontist appointment is had raining alot so when I got to my locker my blazer was absolutely soaked. So I took it off and put on a red jacket and on my way to the car park my p.e teacher stopped me to ask me to put my blazer back on. I said quite politely it was in my locker and I was late for the orthodontist and I was coming back to school anyway for a music concert. then she had a massive rant saying how "You should never leave school without a blazer! You are still in lesson, you are meant to be in my lesson so you will go back to your locker and get your blazer and stop with the cheek!"

So in the end I went to go get my blazer and the teacher followed me to make sure i put my blazer on! Then she didn't let me leave till I had re-done my tie and given another rant about my uniform. I was so late to the orthodontist they didn't have time for my appointment -.- I couldn't get another appointment for 4 months!
