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.

US Students Walk Out On Speech Justifying War Crimes Against Palestine

Quote:Press TV – The walk-out took place in protest at what the students called the Zionist regime’s crimes against Palestinians as the Israeli soldiers attempted to defend Israel’s siege on Gaza at a recent speech in the Student Activities Center of Rutgers University in the Northeastern US state of New Jersey.

The students all stood up in unison in a silent protest, putting red duct tapes on their mouths. They held up signs condemning Israeli war crimes and showed placards, on which names of Palestinian children killed by the Israeli regime in Gaza and the West Bank were written.

The child’s age was also given on each placard along with the word, “Silenced” written next to it in bold script.

Several students disrupted one of the Israeli soldiers as he addressed the students, shouting, “Why didn’t you resist joining the army of the Zionist murderers?”

After heckling the event, the students took to the streets chanting slogans against Israel and calling for the liberation of Palestine and an end to Israel’s crimes against Palestinians.

The protests come as relations between the United States and Israel have cost Washington dearly as many believe that the US all-out support for Tel Aviv has tarnished its image in the world.

Now lets all sit back and see what the neo-conservatives and the bankers have to say about this.
