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.

Ex-MRA explains why he became and stopped being an MRA

Quote:A user on RevLeft suggested I write up my story. I hope it’s all it’s cracked up to be. I placed this into OI, so I could get feedback from as many people as possible. I hope that this isn't a problem for the mods. This is a long post.

Are there any ex-PUAs or ex-MRAs here? I'd be curious to hear your transition, as would that user who suggested I do this write up.

Parental Spousal Abuse

My mother was a sadistic authoritarian egomaniacal bully. She would abuse the language of feminism to justify her behavior, calling herself a strong independent woman. I did not understand until later that term actually referred to a self-actualized assertive person for that reason. I learned to associate the term strong independent woman with manipulative psychopath. You can see where I got off to bad start with my how my experiences ended up coloring and distorting terms for me.

On the contrary my father was a kindhearted, generous person that didn't have a mean bone in his body. Due to his easy-going and generous nature it is easy to see how it was taken advantage of. He was gentle, patient and never raised his voice or yelled--until my mother got involved. She was the only person that would drive my father to yell and curse, but only in very brief outbursts after she had been screaming at my dad for a while. Most of the overall screaming would be done by her. All of the physical abuse would be done by her. My father would never hit a woman, not even to defend himself. This is what the patriarchy teaches you. So-called chivalry. Only a faggit would hit a woman! What are you? A pussy? A queer?

If my father didn't do what she wanted, she would throw a tantrum like a child. There were several times when they would argue where she stood in the front doorway blocking his path, stopping him from going to work in the morning. She would stand there screaming, possibly hitting him, and would not move until she got her way.

Indeed, it was very often when she would start screaming at him she would stand in the doorway of the room they happened to be in, refusing to move upon request and menacingly blocking my father from being able to remove himself from the abusive situation, without having to physically move her. It seemed she was essentially daring him to make physical contact with her. Bullies are often experts at being abusive and manipulative towards their victims, and are also adept at pretending to be the victim themselves once the real victim starts fighting back. My father showed incredible restraint standing when she would decide to claw and slap him on his face, chest, arms, and neck during their fighting sprees, which would go on for what seemed like hours.

There was one time that my father finally fought back. He was driving with my mother and brother in the car. I was at a friends house at the time. They began arguing and in the middle of the argument, my mother began to slap and claw at my father’s arm while he was driving with my brother in the car. This caused my father to swerve and nearly crash. He was able to safely stop the car; his arm scratched, bruised and bloody. She quickly jumped out of the car, opened the back door and scooped my brother out running off down the street with him. This is considered kidnapping, a felony in Florida. My father got out of the car, chased her down, grabbed my brother while he was still clutched by my mother, and kicked her in the leg causing her to fall and release my brother into my dad’s hands.

A witness saw my father kick her and called police who showed up within just a couple minutes (the area where this happened was a fairly affluent neighborhood with an average response time of about a minute and half). My dad explained to the officer that my mother had endangered the life of my brother by hitting him while he was driving and then had tried to kidnap him, so he had used justified force in getting her to release him (in Florida, it is legal to use up to deadly force to stop a kidnapping). The officer acted as if my dad’s side of the story didn't exist, despite the obvious injuries on his arm. The officer also refused to take photos of my father’s injuries. My father, a person who never had a criminal record in his life, was arrested and booked for assault and battery. He accepted a plea deal that forced him to go to anger management class. My mother was never charged with assault and battery, child endangerment nor kidnapping.

Movement Towards MRA, MGTOW & PUA

MRA & MGTOW groups appealed to me because of this. They seemed to be the only place where it seemed like someone else understood what I was going through. A place where people understood that women could be abusers and aggressors too. That they weren't victims 100% of the time. I felt that finally someone was presenting things with balance. My experiences led me to believe that feminists were simply providing a forum for man hate. I did not recognize my own internal hatred of women.

I became a PUA because I wanted to get back at women. I wanted to get back at them for having caused my father and my brother so much pain. I wanted to fuck them all to show them who's boss. Power. It wasn’t even for myself. I made it a goal to revengefully fuck as much women as possible. The techniques actually worked. I was actually having sex for once in my life. I thought I had discovered the secret to having sex with any woman. What I didn’t realize is that I had merely discovered the secret to having sex with shallow women and it really wasn't much of a secret anyway.

Unfortunately, a large portion of the population is shallow. This isn't necessarily some kind of natural human shortcoming. It is social conditioning brought about largely through the culture of status through stuff. Plundering and having shiny new stuff gives you status and that’s somehow supposed to be important. Women are still considered property by society, it’s just not as overt as it used to be. It is ingrained in our culture to give deference and respect to people who claw their way towards what they want, without regard for others. Raw egoism The cult of the self, as I've heard Chris Hedges put it. One is automatically given status by propagandized minds by simply assuming the sophomoric quintessential individualist, extroverted, cocky & funny, rugged alpha male archetype. I didn’t realize that this knowledge (which I thought was incredibly profound at the time) was simply a special case of typical methods of propaganda, manipulation and appeal to the worst of human emotion. Politicians routinely do the exact same thing to get large portions of the population to like them.

This is how I met an extremely right-wing girlfriend and dated her for nearly two years. Precisely by assuming the alpha archetype, which was totally not my real personality. By that time I had learned to pull it off quite well. The problem was not that I couldn’t maintain the facade with this now ex-girlfriend. It was actually that one day I was talking to her and just started wondering, Who is this person? By not being who I truly was by assuming this Rico Sauve PUA role, I had ended up attracting a person who was incompatible. A rather obvious result, in hindsight.

Movement Away from MRA, MGTOW and PUA

Just like I got tired of manipulating people in my sales jobs, I got tired of manipulating women with PUA. That’s what it is. Pure and simple. It is the abuse of language and PR tactics to get sex. It works, but at a cost to your soul. Is getting laid so important that I must play psychological games to bed women? Is sex more important than meeting compatible people? I realized that it wasn't to me.

I finally did some further self-reflection. I started to debate with both feminists and MRAs. What I discovered was that real feminism was about the elimination of the patriarchy. I found that many of the legitimate gripes that MRAs have, are actually the fault of patriarchy--something feminists are against. It seems that in nearly all cases MRAs and MGTOWs simply do not understand what feminists really stand for. No reasonable feminist believes in the institution of an equally oppressive matriarchy to replace patriarchy. Rather, they believe in the elimination of the concept of gender roles (if I understand correctly). I finally understood that gender roles are the problem, and not a particular sex.

I don't understand the grouping of PUA with MRA. Generally only feminists trying to paint MRAs, misguided as they are, as misogynist assholes will group them with PUAs. Kind of a guilt by association.

This^^ The MRA movement actually has a very poor opinion of PUAs. I don't know how people keep getting this association.

Great post here. It was probably tough for him to introspect till he realized that he was hating all women for what his mother did, and to improve himself...I hadn't realized how bad it was for men like his dad. Great eye-opening post.

siiiiiiigh...
If nothing else, we need activism to get rid of this debilitating, oppressive "macho"/"sissy" stereotype.

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.

Ex-MRA explains why he became and stopped being an MRA

I am macho man. I eat nacho and sit on a couch watching football. I am macho man. I live dirty. I am macho man.

On a serious note, this is all due to the decaying concept of camaraderie between men thanks to a mainly homophobic society. What men once did in the past, are now considered faggy, or gay, or homo.

MRA is an obvious symptom of this decay. Men are forgetting manhood and defining manhood as that of what's opposite feminism. This course leads to silly and stupid ideas.

EDIT:In fact, camaraderie across genders is best.

I'm a man because I'm comfortable in my own skin. Yeah, many aspects of my personality could be construed as feminine, and I'll never fit the macho stereotype, but could a man be a real man without coming to terms with that?

Honestly expressing emotion and being bluntly honest is far more manly than playing the macho man when you know you aren't. In my view, at least.

I don't see what's wrong with "being a man" in the least. The genders obviously have different conventions about how to act, which also vary depending on culture and environment.

r/mensrights, i feel like masculinity is under attack, because the dad is dumb in sitcoms, the girl wins in mcdonalds ads, and in girls tv shows they encourage girls to feel good about being a girl but the same isn't explicitly encouraged in boys tv shows, boys are just expected to already have confidence and self esteem in their identities and i don't know how to admit that i don't have that because womeon on the internet have problems with what cultural standards of masculinity incluude and result in. Help me get a gf because i have tfw when none.

This^^ The MRA movement actually has a very poor opinion of PUAs. I don't know how people keep getting this association.

People get this association because actual MRAs (like this guy) have been associated with it.

Hey Trar, it's been a while. I have some books that you might like.

Also, who do you think is better, Rawls or Marx?

Nozick.

Interesting how Rawls shits on both Marx and Nozick from some weird moral-ethical point.
I think Marxists would simply just dismiss (as nothing to lose sleep over) Rawlsian criticism as they would if (I also think) Austrian School ethics were being mentioned, but don't take my word for it.
