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.

-SoulRiser

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.

I should be able to vote.

If adults are gonna vote for Rick Santorum and Rick Perry then I should be allowed to vote. Seriously, wtf, how could Santorum and Perry get even 1000 in Iowa polls. Apparently adults have better judgement than kids.

So what? I am 12 year old and I know everything about local politics. But no, I shouldn't have the right to vote, since I'm not mature enough.

I don't think a 2-year-old would ever want to vote. They wouldn't be thinking about such things or even be aware of them.

The guvmint could use the 'political test' to their advantage.
Who gives a shit when there's always people who vote for assholes and most babies and kids won't want to vote anyway?
What's more likely to happen is that parents will 'convince' kids to vote for who they want and people with more kids will basically have more votes.

fucking idiots everyone should vote for Vermin Supreme

This. Not everyone should be voting.

No tests, no age limit.

Just the ability to read and write and comprehend.

Essentially no one under 5 would probably ever vote.

This already happens except the parent has to wait until the kid turns 18 and at this point that doesn't really matter.

Laws are made that affect everyone so everyone should have the right to vote. Simple.

Though government is fucking stupid to begin with.
