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.

Hair dye rules

I don't get it, it's hair dye for God's sake, not a permanent tattoo of a bad partner's name or dope or something.

RE: Hair dye rules

Are you talking about in school? Like how they say you can't dye your hair "unnatural" colors? In my school, no one actually paid attention to that stupid rule. But, like, they said it was because "weird" hair is a distraction.

RE: Hair dye rules

Lol, my old school was strict on this. College = can go rainbow if you want.

I've got a friend who wants to dye my fringe pink. I wouldn't mind trying neon green though.

Yeah, there was a guy in my high school who had a mohawk and then he cut it off and that was a distraction.

That will be ah... crap you already said interesting.

My school when I was in 6th Grade was much more lenient. I loved it. It's where cruel bastards like me could prosper.

OT: One of my favorite memories, was the agenda passes. My school operates with 9 passes in the back of your agenda for each quarter, now what I picked up on, was that you could buy agendas in the office for $10. God that year was amazing. I pretty much never had a shortage of customers, once kids figured they could just get more, they started getting looser with their passes.

There were two best parts, one when the office had a small... ah... shortage. They charged $10 for every agenda then, so I charged $20, business was down quite a bit, but the $5 increase in profit meant I could stock up on them, an agenda for every one sold, where as before it was every two sold. Amazing year. In 6th grade there was an underground market for the students, the teachers never found out, I ran a pretty good front, those were the days.

"Ask them no more questions, never hear them lying"

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

RE: Hair dye rules

You can dye your hair freely in my school, and you can get whatever hairstyle you want. But, if it isn't a popular hairstyle or a strange colour of dye, prepare for a bollocking by the students and mocking comments by the teachers.

Mocking comments of the teachers aren't bad if you know to counter them - they can't mock you and then punish you if you give them a sarcastic answer.

Mostly it just refers to colors that you can't be born with, or can't actually grow, but we'll see what genetic engineering does to that. At some point.

In my school extreme hairstyles are forbidden too. Unnatural hair colours are also not allowed, but people don't care about this rule and teachers would only punish students for unnatural hair colours if they're in Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Year 12's and Year 13's aren't allowed to have unnatural hair colours either, but for some reason they don't get punished.

Hair dye rules

I'm personally happy with my natural hair colour and I find no need to change it. People can dye it if they want. It's just if they dye it some extreme colour where I am, they're assumed to be some sort of SJW or goth.

Hair dye rules

I was born with "weird" hair; in a sea of black-haired kids, I stood out b/c my hair is naturally light brown. School didn't make much of a fuss over it, apart from the "Is that your natural hair color?" questions at the start of every year.

I feel like people with purposely different hair are a tad more likely to be cool to talk to.

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.

Hair dye rules

IMO it's another way to exercise control and dominance over young people; just like uniforms, cell phone rules and so on. A reasonable dress code can be useful, or even beneficial, but school rules are rarely reasonable.
