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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

bu-but I'm Master Historian!

btw keep in mind k-12 history is absurdly simplified and abbreviated to the extent that some of the stuff are outright incorrect.

Yeah. In that case, it's probably worth giving some of these School Survivors some information against their teacher xD.

Too many specific cases. I can help provide answers if there's anything specific that comes to mind in the form of "I wonder how accurate my teacher/textbook really is?"

Context is key, and by neglecting to provide certain context, schools are helping revise history in a way that removes the reality of the situation. Such is the nature of humanity, and one we must overcome.

Yep. Perhaps one great example is that "colonization" is not "invasion", or "genocide", although I actually won't really hold a grudge against these Europeans, given that they're responsible for my existence, and many other people, not to mention many advances are because of these European... whatever you want to call them.

Of course there are many fine examples though...

They almost always show incredible bias for Europe. They showcase Europe often as superior to Asian, African and Native Americans when they aren't.

Vietnam is probably worst case in contemporary history. Totally lacking substance and total propaganda.

we need to teach the history from both (or however many there are) points of view.

Or avoid not mentioning certain things...like how Minh contacted Murika for help, and how he luved Murika, and that Ngo Dinh Diem was a total douchebag dictator.

Yep; it's funny because Ho Chi Minh was actually quite openly open American... actually a lot of these "Socialist" movements in many of these countries actually were quite anti-Communist in rhetoric. The one that still comes up to my mind are the Socialists in Guatemala, who were actually quite open to capitalism and were staunchly anti-Soviet.

The Guatemalan president considered a commie was actually a "Christian Socialist" who simply wanted land reforms to end the control of the wealthy United Fruit Company that owned a significant amount of the country's property and resources.

Anti-Imperialism was constantly branded as communist because the rebels fought the exploitations of a capitalist regime.

Islamic golden age ftw

We taught European pigs how to live like humans, and now they think they invented civilization.
