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.

Forcing people to go to school when they are sick.

So yea, today I felt really bad so I went out of school, got home, took my temperature and i couldn't fucking believe it 37,6 degrees Celsius W00t i thought, then my parents got home and they fucking told me that I MUST GO TO SCHOOL WHEN I AM FUCKING SICK (sorry for the raging) AND WITHOUT ANY FUCKING MEDICINE TO KEEP MY TEMPERATURE DOWN. As you can see I'm very pissed right now. And on top of that the first lesson is PE and i will have to run for 10 minutes so ill probably Die, but no one cares. Share your opinion/stories please Smile.

Re: Forcing people to go to school when they are sick.

If you're that sick, then stay home, no matter what they say. Do they want you to puke all over the gym floor?

It's the stupid truancy laws; even if you're sick and "excused," you can still only miss about 9-10 days a semester.

Re: Forcing people to go to school when they are sick.

Continuing the story:
My night was totally without sleep, I got up at 7 am, went to school (for my school starts at 8:30), PE teacher saw me and told me to go to the school's doctor, so I did. Got my temperature checked, Then she wrote me off school for a week YAY!. Good thing everything went well (for now at least), but now my parents will be pissed at me for not attending school (and for my low marks). But seriously, who the fuck cares.

Please share some stories of yours.

Re: Forcing people to go to school when they are sick.

If you feel like you need to throw up or your illness distracts you from doing anything else, stay the fuck home. It'll keep other people from getting sick and save you a lot of misery.

I remember my cross country coach getting pissed when I missed 3 days of practice due to illness 2 years ago. Nevermind that the training was extremely rigorous and my body was on the verge of breaking down; plus, I had a shitload of work in calculus and physics, plus a job, and I got 6 hours of sleep a night when I was lucky.

This, but for wrestling. My coaches would get pissed if you missed a day of practice for fucking anything. Got a broken leg? Show up and watch the training session anyway. Shit was retarded. They take sports WAY TOO seriously in high school.

Pretty much. I wasn't even on varsity, and they expected me to run a mile under 6 minutes. My mile time improved, but that was through my own individual training, not the Nazi style regiments of my coach. It's like they expect the kids in school to actually make a living off sports. Laugh

Exactly, the majority of my weekends we were off at some fucking tournament. It sucked.

Go to school when your sick and pass it on to some Nazi teachers.

Forcing people to go to school when they are sick.

I remember that a few times I went to school with a headache too. But it wasn't 37.6 degrees celcius. It was 38.something degrees celcius. My mum wanted to keep me home, but I always refused. I hate it when I have to stay home from school. She usually gave up later, but told me not to go to P.E. And that's ok, because even though I like school, there are a few subjects that I don't like, and P.E. is one of them. And there was a case when I was sick and had P.E but I don't remember what happened in that lesson and whether I was playing or not. But the reason why I went to school that day is because I had art. One of my favourite subjects.

It's the stupid truancy laws; even if you're sick and "excused," you can still only miss about 9-10 days a semester.

Which is a genuine human rights violation,whether the law has enough brain cells to acknowledge it or not.

Hidden stuff:
"CONSENSUAL incest is not wrong. (Abuse victims: being abused by a relative does not make it wrong for others to have consensual incest, any more than rape by a stranger makes all sex wrong. Sex and assault/molestation are two different things.) An aversion became common in humans that aided in population growth as one disease couldn't wipe out the human race. That's not a problem anymore.

Consensual incest is very common. You know people who have been involved, whether you know it or not.

There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consensual
incest that is consistently applied to other relationships. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to personally engage in what I call consanguinamory, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults. Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative. It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we? If someone thinks YOUR love life is disgusting, should you be thrown in prison?

Some people try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and
marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

Some say "Your sibling should not be your lover." That is not a reason. It begs the question. Many people have many relationships that have more than one aspect. Some women say their sister is their best friend. Why can’t their sister be a wife, too?

Some say “There is a power differential.” This applies least of all to siblings or cousins who are close in age, but even where the power differential exists, it is not a justification for denying this freedom to sex or to marry. There is a power differential in just about any relationship, sometimes an enormous power differential. To question if consent is truly possible in these cases is insulting and demeaning.

Some say “There are so many people outside of your family." There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. So, this isn't a good reason either. Let consenting adults love each other the way they want!"-Keith Pullman

Okay if you go to school when you are sick willingly then you are willingly putting other students and teachers at risk of getting sick, and even if it's not that bad then they might have a different immune system and it could be worse for them, your body is also expending energy trying to fight off the sickness and if your walking around school and doing shit then you could actually pass out, especially with a temp. of that

well would you look at the time its time to gay
