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.

High School Students are all Douchebags.......

I mean. They just watch a fellow peer get verbally and physically harassed and sit there and laugh at the person. Why beat up this kid? What did he do? NOTHING. that's what. Just walking down the hall minding his own business only to get messed with because he Answers too many questions in class, or has a high GPA and doesn't act the way the so called "popular" students act. Or don't want to waste his hard earned pay check on 100 dollar pants or a 140 dollar book-bag. And for all the people who themselves are call "LAMES" and "LOSERS" to just sit and laugh at him, that's just a messed up move. For Friends to just turn around and walk the other way when seeing a friend get messed with. How can you call yourself a true friend?



And to top it all off. When i asked why are you guys laughing? you know what BULLSHIT they said to me?

"Well. Atleast it wasn't happening to ME"

they just shrug their shoulders and walk off giggling. Jeez, I'm fucking sad to be in the Generation I'm in. The Youth are just straight a bunch of Followers and dick ride, the person they see as more popular, just to get in that "circle" of people. Where are the Leaders? the true INDIVIDUALS? Why do i get smack from teachers and get looked at like I'm an asshole from other students when I say that this Generation's Youth is Retarded?

Re: High School Students are all Douchebags.......

Eh, my school must be different. We don't have "bullying" or whatever. While there are kids who think they are better than others, and kids who think others are either losers or cool, no one really bothers the "losers" and it generally isn't a problem. At least, that's how I see it. I talk to the "losers" and the most popular motherfuckers in my school, and nobody fucks with me.

This one kid asked me why I talk to some of those kids, and I asked him why I shouldn't. Didn't really give me any more shit after that. Shrug

Re: High School Students are all Douchebags.......

When I was in high school (and younger), if I saw someone getting harrassed, I tried to stop it. I've only succeeded a couple of times, but I tried.

The one thing I've never had the guts to do is stand up to someone who is bitching out their young child. If they are the kind of person who would scream at and/or hit a 4-year-old, imagine what they might do to me....

:(

This, also you'd be slammed by 20 people yelling "Don't try to tell me how to raise my child" and all of that bullshit.

It appears they too have forgot what being young feels like.
