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.

A rather voice and feeling of consdesendence, pompiness and superiority disregarding the problems at hand.

RE: School Survival mentioned by a youtuber

Onision is a prick. There's so many fucked up things he's done.

http://onioncuter.tumblr.com/post/861569...-onto-this

This list is massive. You can find a massive amount of dirt on this asshole.

I mean just this video alone is proof of his worthlessness. The fact that he still has it up on his channel and defends it is gross.


Watch on YouTube

He makes fun of people who self harm


Watch on YouTube

He encourages people to kill themselves

and that's not even scratching the surface.

The thing is, he has thousands of fans, and all of them take him seriously. That's scary.

Wow. Something I can actually agree with coming from you.

Why am I not surprised? Rolleyes

It's true that Onision is a major douche and has A LOT of scandals surrounding him, but it seems that a lot of his content, and in particular this video that references School Survival, is mainly sarcastic and satirical. I mean, c'mon, no one here actually took the part seriously when he said we'd be sucking **** if we dropped out of school... right? RIGHT? I sure hope not lol.

I think another issue is that a lot of his fans do actually take him seriously. A lot of them are manipulatable preteens so it exacerbates the problems his content can cause.

I also wish he actually mentioned SS in the video. He is quite the popular YTer despite all the scandals that surround him. We could've gotten a boost in activity if he had mentioned it, who knows, but those of us who visit the site could obviously tell by the UI in that part of the video that it was definitely us.

Seven crappy hours of our lives.

There are two ways to joke about something. You can sound like you don't mean it and the humor is in the absurdity, or you can sound like you mean it and the humor is in the mockery. I've always hated when people take the former for the latter, or the latter for the former.
I've never watched Onison, so I can't say what I make of this just yet, but you guys should take care not to think mockery is okay.

Jesus y'all took the video way too seriously. It comes off more as if he's making fun of the system as a whole, he's not a douchy "accept it" type. Also the dick sucking comment was taken way out of context. Y'all need to just learn to laugh at yourselves, as well as the system.

I'm not going to judge the man himself. It seems he's pissed people off before, but I'm not going to judge him on that.

Hidden stuff:
"CONSENSUAL incest is not wrong. (Abuse victims: being abused by a relative does not make it wrong for others to have consensual incest, any more than rape by a stranger makes all sex wrong. Sex and assault/molestation are two different things.) An aversion became common in humans that aided in population growth as one disease couldn't wipe out the human race. That's not a problem anymore.

Consensual incest is very common. You know people who have been involved, whether you know it or not.

There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consensual
incest that is consistently applied to other relationships. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to personally engage in what I call consanguinamory, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults. Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative. It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we? If someone thinks YOUR love life is disgusting, should you be thrown in prison?

Some people try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and
marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

Some say "Your sibling should not be your lover." That is not a reason. It begs the question. Many people have many relationships that have more than one aspect. Some women say their sister is their best friend. Why can’t their sister be a wife, too?

Some say “There is a power differential.” This applies least of all to siblings or cousins who are close in age, but even where the power differential exists, it is not a justification for denying this freedom to sex or to marry. There is a power differential in just about any relationship, sometimes an enormous power differential. To question if consent is truly possible in these cases is insulting and demeaning.

Some say “There are so many people outside of your family." There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. So, this isn't a good reason either. Let consenting adults love each other the way they want!"-Keith Pullman
