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.

Hello.

I'm Kalivho. I'm a 15 year old nongendered social justice activist who is being oppressed by the Kyriarchial school system and your forums seem attractive to me. Note I am triggered by large text, please do not use it when replying to me. Other than that, as long as you don't spout any cisgendered bullshit in your posts, we will be fine. Smile

Hi. Also, I'd just like to add my pronouns: zir and hir. Please do not call me "he or she" as I will call you out on your cissexist bullshit.

You mean you don't need to justify your dislike of large text to Soul? Of course you don't, she was just curious. Also, what makes you think we are being oppressive?

Abusing triggers is a form of ableist oppression. Several members have deliberately used large text to harras me.

Okay, some of them have been doing that. But not all of us have, and you're being pretty rude to us as well. I'm wondering why you find me and a few of the more decent members oppressive? As for the rest of them, just ignore them, they're assholes.

Inaction is just as damaging as actively comitting the opression. Call the people out on their bullshit, don't pretend to be my ally when you're inactive.

Inaction is damaging. I realize this. But you are being rude to people too! Your saying that I oppress you by being a straight white male. So, I'm oppressing you by having a different sexuality? Why would I defend someone who treats my like shit for something that's not even my fault! You were rude to me from the second you got here.

This. You're coming in here and complaining about how everybody is oppressing you simply because they have a dick or a vagina and can accept that/are happy with that. On top of that, you're being a condescending little prick about it, then complain about being oppressed more when people call you out on it.
I don't know why you think you'll get our sympathy by acting like that.

You're still failing to explain how we are oppressing you. Is it because I have a dick and I can accept that?
Nobody here has said ANYTHING against you/who you are until you started acting like a bitch.
