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.

"I'm the adult and you're the child! Know your place!"

"You don't ever question or talk black to a teacher! I'm the adult and you're the child! Know your place."

My math teacher said this to a kid who being a smart-aleck today.

"No matter what I do, it'll probably forever remain a pipe dream that will never come true,
but the fire burning in my heart cannot be doused by anyone.
Even if the black rain falling from the sky drenches me completely and doesn't stop,
I will never allow the fire in my heart to be extinguished. That, is my 'pride'."

Make sure to not talk black, that's common sense.

RE: "I'm the adult and you're the child! Know your place!"

My place is at the helm of a starship incinerating this planet for its lack of common sense. You do not want me in my place.

Hello, traveler.

This is an ancient account I have not used in a long time. My views have changed much in the intervening months and years.

Nonetheless, I refuse to clean it up. Pretending that I've held my current views since the beginning of time is what we in the industry call a lie. Asking people to do so contributes to moralistic self-loathing. "See, those people have nothing damning! I do! I'm truly vile!"

Because you can never be a good person with a single blemish on the moral record, I thought that simply entertaining some thoughts made me irredeemable. Though I don't care for his writing style, William Faulkner presents a good counterexample. He went from being a typical Southern racist to supporting the civil rights movement. These days we'd yell at him for that, probably.

People are allowed to change their views.

Nevertheless, this period of my life has informed some of how I am today. In good ways and bad ways. To purge it would be to do a disservice to history. Perhaps it will not make anyone sympathetic, but it may help someone understand.

If, after reading all this, you still decide to use the post above as evidence that I am evil today, ask yourself if you have never disagreed with the moral code you now follow. In all likelihood you did, at some point. If some questions are verboten, and the answer is "how dare you ask that," don't expect your ideological opponents to ever change their minds.

My dad says this to my sisters and I.

It's pretty much been beaten into my head. luckily I'm rebelious and instead of growing up believing I'm nothing and I have no rights and blah blah blah all the shit my dad said... i didn't
(way too tired to form a coherent thought)

I'm a girl ffffeck

Lol, it was supposed to be "back," but that too.

Wait, you can't talk in pseudo-gangster talk to the teacher? I didn't know that!

On topic, that just shows how students are treated more like slaves than actual human beings. I mean, the teacher is basically saying that you have a pre-defined role and you shouldn't get out of it. School in a nutshell, basically.

"I'm the adult and you're the child! Know your place!"

My place is to be a scholar, a thinker, a novelist, a leader, or an emperor. I have untapped potential, powerful intellect, and infinite ambition.

Your place is to be a grunt worker for a sorry institution meant to make workers. You have nothing. Shut up, common stereotype of the sort of schoolteacher that does not inspire their students.

Essentially all of my names mean monarch; my first name means prince, my middle name was the choice of many Byzantine emperors, and my last name is derived from a pet name for many Germanic kings. Plus, I call myself DukeOfAwesome. If anyone should be an emperor, it's me.

Boy...of dessssssssssstiny!
