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.

Old news: 51 year old marries 16 year old in Las Vegas.

Probably a thread about this already since the article linked was posted a year ago now, but I'd like to here some new, updated opinions. Have any?

If there's grass on the field, play ball.

I've never let my school interfere with my education.

Courtney Stodden's music sucks ass and so he could murder her all I care.
She consented so I don't think anything's wrong with it. If they're in love, theyre in love.

If it was consensual then I don't see the problem.

RE: Old news: 51 year old marries 16 year old in Las Vegas.

She's underage, though. Sixteen years old only. I think that's too young to get married, never mind to marry a fifty year old. Isn't it, by state law, pedophilia on behalf of the elder? Or is Las Vegas condoning of this, in which case a five year old could do the same or something?

I also think she's too young to get married but I support her right to do it. I was joking before but not entirely. Without knowing someone personally, puberty is the only good measure of adulthood.

In terms of law, the minimum age for marriage is 16 with parental consent, at least in Nevada.

Good point, though I think it's pedophilia on the behalf of the man.

If anything it's ephebophilia which is the preference for pubescent individuals. Pedophilia is the preference for pre-pubescent children.

Shrug
The only number I care about is how long they knew each other before they got married. Article doesn't specify, though...

in most states if the person is 12 or 13 it changes from child molestation to statutory rape, and its not statutory rape if they are married. in most states you can marry underage with parental consent.
