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.

Tennessee now wants to punish sex ed teachers for speaking positively about kissing

Quote:NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The House has passed a bill to allow parents to sue teachers or outside groups for promoting or condoning "gateway sexual activity" by students.

The chamber voted 68-23 in favor of the bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Jim Gotto of Nashville on Friday.

Several Democrats argued that the bill's definition of "gateway sexual activity" was too vague and could cause teachers to be disciplined for not breaking up students hugging or kissing during a high school dance.

Democratic Rep. John Deberry of Memphis came to the well of the chamber to make an impassioned defense of the bill and to condemn opponents of being arrogant and "in denial" about efforts to change the behavior that leads to teen pregnancy.

At least one Democrat had angry words for Deberry afterward.

As long as they use protection and don't fuck like rabbits daily, weekly, or even monthly.

RE: Tennessee now wants to punish sex ed teachers for speaking positively about kissing

Kissing is "gateway sexual activity" just like MJ is a "gateway drug". So in the repubs' eyes, sex is no better than illicit drug use.

DEMs EYES

Tumblrinas suck dick-kin

There's no patriarchy, there's also no feminist conspiracy to destroy the rightz of meinz. You're not special if you're a feminist, and you're not special if you are an anti-feminist. Women aren't oppressed, neither are men. Both groups have advantages over each other.

Goddamn the only smart thing Tennessee did is trying to nullify the NDAA and having sheriffs arrest federal agents who try.

Seems everything else they do is stupid.

Do the people that vote on this shit even think about what they're voting on? Or are they all just vagina-deprived old men who take their jealously out on people with bills like this?

Worse sharpie.
They are usually politician dog shit who get money for supporting laws that benefit special interest groups and programs(like the war on drugs).

Somehow they are getting paid for this.

You know what behavior really leads to teen pregnancy?

Not educating them or telling them about condoms.

No, this is Patrick.

Because it's apparently the House's business, aka everyone's business, if kids want to hug or kiss during a fucking school dance.

DENY THE PROBLEM AND IT WILL GO AWAY. Teens don't really have a biological impulse to fuck, guys, they only do so because you teach them about sex! Also, sex is the worst thing in the world. The end.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

We should raid Tennessee for all its resources and start killing everyone and bombing/destroying everything in there. Do to Tennessee what we do to Iraq.

That'll result in either people moving to Siberia and starting towns and shit or everybody dying. Lets go with that until we get a better idea from other SSers.

Look, I don't like public displays of affection either, but they have every right to kiss and hug dammit!

You should only be able to kiss and hug in public if you are both a certain sexy level. Otherwise, life sentence, no parole

Well... if it is different people then no. It simply isn't all that safe. I'm kind of changing my view a little bit. Not an anti-sex one but a safer / more hygienic one.

Only a backwards population of living things and/or Puritanical peoples wants to stop reproduction and endorse killing, like in school, where you some times get long, useless lessons on abstinence and other sex stuff and military recruits.

RE: Tennessee now wants to punish sex ed teachers for speaking positively about kissing

I call on God! Strike those sinners who dare to hug thy child with lightning and make hell devour anybody kissing thy human on a school dance as i quote bible, the book of absurdity, "In the beginning there was a hug, and after hug there came a kiss, then thy God called the police and thy teacher was arrested for telling you that it was alright to feel love"

Did you ever wonder, how time works?
