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.

Gender bullshit...

Now, before you go on ranting on how gender is valid, where is the evidence for gender that cannot be explained off by neuroplasticity and/or low subjects counts? I'm going to need to see a evidence that confirms gender exists outside a social construct in order to consider it valid. If I act like a girl and think like a girl and dress up like a girl accordingly to societal viewpoint, then I am a girl, but then we have the problem of whether the conceptualization is an accurate reflection and whether it actually have to do with the sexes. So, if gender is truly a valid concept, then I can be a transanimal. I feel like a reptile in a human body, I lick my mouth often and I like the heat and I even like solitude, but I operate mostly on survival with little if any emotions. I am a reptile, you cannot deny that I am. I am a transanimal

Yeah, I was getting bothered by this too.
Like, I always hear transsexual people saying they just "feel" like the sex "opposite" of the one they were born as.
But I'm not entirely sure what feeling male or feeling female actually feels like...

I saw... I already have hinted at how one can have the all the "girl" characteristics and still be a guy. If it seem like a label to describe a delusion of thinking you are one, then it's probably not worth supporting as there is no evidence for brain sexes that cannot be explained off. Nor there is evidence for what a girl is supposedly to feel or what a guy is supposedly to feel outside than what their bodies generates. Also, there is the detransitioning people who gets hatred from the transexual community only because it challenges their worldviews.
