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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Some kid called me retarded today and everyone laughed

I've been made fun of in school in the past and it didnt affect me at all, but this did. Some kid called me retarded out of nowhere (this was in the locker room) and everyone in the area laughed :(
Am i really retarded, or no?

I am 14, and have my own computer repair business! And I'm a small time DJ also. No joke.

People laugh at that?

Ugh. That disturbs me, actually. It's herd mentality at its finest, something school is a good thing at breeding. The "ha ha retard" thing is so fucking annoying. So what if my fucking brain functions differently than your's, shut the hell up.

School Logic:Kid walks in hallway doing nothing but normal. Another kid says "You're retarded". Everyone laughs at normal kid.

Real Life:Above. However, nobody laughs and people think the one saying "You're retarded" is a jerk asshole. If in a shop, he will most likely be asked to leave. If in a club, a big muscular bald Russian man will escort him out. If in a biker bar, he will be thrown through a window.

-hugs u- I'm sure you are not retarded. Here are two famous quotes ''rudeness is a sign of weakness, kindness is strength.'' ''Bullies enjoy causing pain because they hate themselves.'' Bullies are stopped dead in their tracks by ''love for yourself.'' People who love themselves don't pick on others. Whenever a person calls you a mean name , be your own hero. Kill bullies with maturity and kindness, weak people hate the positive, because they know they could never give or get positivity. Good luck!

Unfortunately this is true. This is all part of the whole "herd mentality" that's so notorious about factory model schooling. This all leads to the question on how to change things, how to change the way people react, and how to foster positive experiences and truly meaningful connections as well.

I've tried to find videos that relate somewhat to the subject at hand, and try to impersonate xcriteria here to an extent, but this is what I could find. Hope it helps.

Take note that the article from Tampa Bay Times was written by someone who experienced bullying as well in very similar, if not very much the same, circumstances as you did.

they could have called me that because i actually have a job (read my signature) and make money. I'm a nerd. Maybe thats a sign of being retarded in todays society.

A lot of so-called "retarded" people really do achieve a lot. A shame that instead "har har you sound funny" overshadows the achievements and intelligence "retards" are capable of and have.

What do you do if it's your parents that call you a retard(don't assume)?

Also I've heard kids call eachother names worse than retard. But calling someone a retard is still mean.

All you have to do is say something back. He called you retarded?? That's it? Unleash upon him a fiery hailstorm of swear words he doesn't even know yet, or just flip him off when he can plainly see you.

When people fuck with you, at school more so than anywhere else, you have to fuck with them twice as hard or they're just going to keep doing it. If it gets too bad, the element of surprise can allow you to win any fight.

edit: oh and I forgot to mention, I got a really good laugh out of your sig Jim.

It's too bad that standing up for yourself in this day and age is worthy of scolding and suspension. Meanwhile, the bully gets off scott free.

This is nonsense.

The majority of bullies have quite a lot of self esteem and friends. I see social outcasts poked at a lot more than anyone else. In most cases, they enjoy causing pain because they find it funny, and don't care/dislike for the other person, or even just jealousy. If others find it funny/cool, or to coerce someone into something, it's also about gaining social power.

The sad truth is that by nature humans can become sadists. When growing up, it takes a while to realise someones pain...or they just think they should "deal with it" because apparently they can too.

Not only that, but those with high self esteem tend to get over with the bad things they do quicker. Ignorance is a bliss. They may be able to deal with conflicts better, which is why they keep bullying. If they're rewarded for it by their peers, then they're going to have a higher self esteem.

I have fairly low self esteem, yet I'm a lot more sensible than the majority of people... at least on the internet anyway. It's caused mostly by my own failures.

Most people who "bully" that have low self esteem is usually verbal and caused by frustration and/or real life problems.

Most kids realise it's bad. But they get a thrill from it anyway. If we could just stop doing things instantly because they're "bad", then problems would be easily solved. That's why they do it when no supervisor is watching.

In OPs case it was either jealousy and/or just because the bully gets an ego boost from picking on others.

That's why I propose the lifeolater. Anytime a bully of inflated ego acts sadisticaly, a bunch of bearded nordic bikers appear on their "hogs" and proceed to toss the bully throw a window frame they brought along specially made for throwing people through with relative safety.

Isn't it annoying when such kids think they can provoke adults and get away with it as well? In my area, some guy got ganged up on by 6-7 15-16 year olds because one of the kids punched the guys car and he confronted the kid(who ran to a group of kids). He didn't hit back though, even if he was a mixed martial artist. I personally would've beaten the kids silly in self-defense.

There were other kids around but only one interfered(a girl). The group was well known for their bullying. I personally believe an ass-kicking would've been appropriate. Followed by "Welcome to the real world kids!"

RE: Some kid called me retarded today and everyone laughed

It's not nonsense. People who feel genuine love for themselves don't try to create hell for other people. Bullying is a sign of weakness, either a bully grew up in a harsh environment , they are cynicists or they learned it. Have you ever heard that ''if you don't love yourself first, you can't truly love others?'' It shows disrespect for yourself when you represent yourself as a bully, bullies are feared. You lose respect for yourself when you live that kind of life. If a person bullies because they think it gives them power, they are revealing that they are not strong. Bullies who do it because they think it's cool, desperately want to try to be that ''cool guy''. Bullies who bully to get a good laugh are making themselves look bad. A person who truly love themselves, are the ones who defend bullied victims, they never participate in it, A bully may feel right in themselves but the respect isn't there.

Bullies who do it because they think it's cool, desperately want to try to be that ''cool guy''. Bullies who bully to get a good laugh are making themselves look bad. A person who truly love themselves, are the ones who defend bullied victims, they never participate in it, A bully may feel right in themselves but the respect isn't there.

'if you don't love yourself first, you can't truly love others?''

So because I have low self esteem, I don't deserve to be in a relationship? I don't love someone for what they have, but who they are.

In an environment with kids/teens, they usually don't care about assholes. They tend to not understand the perspective of others emotions. I may be generalising, though when we are younger, we aren't as good at empathising. It's basically childish...in a bad way. In adulthood, or with adults is when being an asshole is really detrimental. Much of those who previously bullied grow out of it (though ofc, it's better to discourage it in the first place).

I'm not saying that none of those with low self esteem are bullies, though it's usually those with high self esteem who are. Of course, there are those with high self esteem who are nice people too. Though I feel much of it is caused by success. Sure, you'd feel proud if you managed to be successful, right?

Respectfulness is usually something that can only be perceived by others, rather than yourself. I consider littering disrespectful, but those who litter don't think about it. They simply don't care or think someone else will take care of it, that it's okay to do. Bullies on the other hand may consider themselves "superior" enough to pick on others.

I may seem evil at times, though I just want to make a point. I like to create real discussion.

Some kid called me retarded today and everyone laughed

Quote:The majority of bullies have quite a lot of self esteem and friends. I see social outcasts poked at a lot more than anyone else. In most cases, they enjoy causing pain because they find it funny, and don't care/dislike for the other person, or even just jealousy. If others find it funny/cool, or to coerce someone into something, it's also about gaining social power.
That's not true self-esteem. If someone genuinely respected themselves, what could they possibly gain from dragging someone else down?

That's not even remotely related. Love, relationships and what people do or don't deserve are all completely seperate topics, don't just go make assumptions and dump them together like that.
