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.

Our motto was "No gym clothes? No problem!".

I tried that once in high school and got in lots of trouble. Apparently, it's a really big deal.

Yep, and I don't understand it. It's a waste of money anyway, so I don't understand why they make such a big deal out of it.

EDIT: Wait a second, it's the school trying to make money off students, isn't it?

It wasn't money in my case; the school didn't sell gym clothing.
I think they just get upset when you don't follow the rules, no matter how arbitrary they are.

No tolerance for insubordination.

If we take a long time changing without a 'excuse' and are late to our 'squads'(Basically assigned seats) it takes points off our grade.

"I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing."-Neil Gaimen

You people need to calm down. They are just gym clothes. Bring them, change into them, wear them, change out of them, wash them. It's not that hard, and better than no PE at all.

My birthday suit can substitute for gym cloths. It'll expose more surface area to the air, thus helping keep my body temperature down when engaging in physical activities.

Why shouldn't I be allowed to run around in jeans if I want?

At no other point in your life is somebody going to reprimand you for exercising in whatever the hell you feel like wearing.

But letring your dick hang free is a problem? Hell, that area of the body produces the most heat. Might as well let it cool with the rest of your body...

At my school, you MUST buy gym clothes from the school. I don't care about wearing sports clothes for sporting activities, I just hate it that my school wants us to buy P.E. clothes.

Fuck illogic would br appropriate. "Oh noes, I cant look at penises but I touch mine everyday" or "Oh noes I cant look at penises but Il have one shoved into me in the future". Replace penis for vagina(and change into me to the correct phrase).

The only dilemma here is what to do about that erection when your running laps in a single file line(hopefully the person in front doesnt stop too abruptly eh?)

And it is worse when you have a gym uniform you must wear. They arent always cheap or comfortable.

The fact that schools make such a big deal about it shows they are the ones that need to calm down.

RE: Me And My Friends Didn't Put On Our Gym Clothes

Nudism should be one of the topics here. I mean, the government is forcing girls...erm, people...to cover up despite the fact that walking around au naturale doesn't hurt anyone, and it would be harder for terrorists and criminals to hide weapons if they walked around naked.

Any downsides to nudism? Anyone?

If it were no big deal then the school wouldn't care either. Fact is the school is obsessed with exercising control.

Not for me, at least. And I'm not saying you would have to go naked; you wouldn't if you didn't want to. I'd definitely be going nude though.
