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.

Welp, I'm grade A fucked now

My family wants me to get confirmed. I have to study a bunch of religious stuff until May 9th. So, what's the problem here?

I'm a deist/theist. I personally don't believe in religion. However, I've never told my family this. In addition, if I said this, right now, I know my family will get really pissed. They'll think I'm possessed or something like that. And you know what's worse?

My family doesn't go to church. Not in years. They don't practice Christianity. They're not dedicated in any way. Worse, my brother is an absolute sociopath, but he has religious symbols, etc, probably because he believes that because he's so dedicated to god, regardless of his sociopathy, he's protected. Fuck, him. What a bunch of hypocrites.

Sigh.... well, it can't be too bad. I guess I'll just have to study it enough that I'll be fine, and then I can pretty go back to my normal self after May 9th. Seriously though, I wasn't expecting this.

Stick up for yourself man, tell them you're not into that. If that pisses them off then so be it, they'll deal.

RE: Welp, I'm grade A fucked now

Hey, you sound a lot like me! But, this is coming up for me. I think it's next year, actually.

Yeah, you need to say something. Even though I've been putting it off, I need to do it before confirmation. Better that than desecrating a ceremony by lying to the clergy, IMHO.

Yeck. I hate the folk who dont do shit yet somehos believe they're religiously blessed.

"Yeah I dont do any worship and stuff, but I wear a cross so I got God on my side"

Just bluntly tell them the truth. Better to be a dedicated something than a wannabe nothing.

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.

I don't think I have much choice here. My family pretty much got me the material and my bro had to travel for hours to collect it (Stockton).

Unfortunately, It looks like I might have to lie in front of a clergy. They're going to get real pissed if I tell them.....

RE: Welp, I'm grade A fucked now

Hmmm...

This suggestion may sound extremely stupid, depending on what kind of church it is.

But maybe you can ask someone at the church about it? I think that in most cases a priest/social worker/whatever you have would rather you not lie... And if they are any more sympathetic than your parents, they can maybe help convince them.

On the other hand, if it's the wrong kind of church, doing that could just make everything worse.

RE: Welp, I'm grade A fucked now

Yeah, I'm "agnostic" or an atheist or however you wanna call it, and I pretty much just stuck it out and slowly stopped going to church and then just never admitted to my family anything, because fuck it.


I guess that's kinda the pussy way to do it, but w/e it worked for me lolo.

For anyone who remembers me going on an archive binge: Thank you all.
