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.

What is your social status at school?

I am pretty much a loner at my school.People don't tolerate me because I have a low-pitched voice and they think I am retarted. And you?

RE: What is your social status at school?

I'm actually kinda popular. I'm no jock, but I have a lot of friends

But in middle school, tools are drawn to you when they find out you smoke weed. Its kinda annoying. Apparently, smoking weed is the most badass thing anyones ever done

When I was in school, I was that one weird kid that was really smart, except he was a fag.

He was an hero. He will always be remembered.

Honestly?

Most of the people around here have pretty similar opinions (except for bulgvar, but who cares about that guy?). No one to argue against, only agreeing all the time! Your minds go soft and you get weak! Who's going to keep you sharp, with no one to argue against?

Also the ideas a lot of you have about gender and transsexuality and rape and feminism are seeeeeeeeeeeeeeriously messed up.

RE: What is your social status at school?

I can't walk around college once without seeing someone I know and stopping to talk with them and I'm out pretty much every night till 7-10.

In school though I used to be just in a small group of people who would hang out on breaks and meet up friday nights to pool money and get high.

The idea of equal genders is never going to happen. rape is bad mkay and man ladies are ok with me.

RE: What is your social status at school?

Hueg loner, I mostly "talk" to one guy at school, but meh. Most people at my school don't really give a damn about me I guess, and that's erm-fine though it pisses me off inside sometimes. A lot of the time I don't like social interaction, not even talking with my own parents. pretty sure there's something wrong with me... who cares

Everyone knows me and I talk to most people. But I just hang out with a small group (2-10) people and we just play soccer on the oval.

My school is small so everyone knows everyone else but I regularly talk to about 6 people who I'd consider to be friends.

What do you guys consider a *small school*?
My school is moderate. We have about 1000-1100 kids.

Not really?

Biological males and females perform different reproductive functions. Amongst humans, this manifests through different genitals, body shapes, and hormonal chemicals. Sex does not always reflect of the gender of a human individual. There are no other innate differences between males and females, other than those constructed by society.

I already knoooooooow about how ladies and gents are expected to act differently! Just because someone identifies a certain way doesn't mean they have to fall into those stereotypes. :/
