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 Big Scary Anti-Gay Assembly

I go to a private Catholic school because it's one of better schools in my area and my dad is a teacher there. Well anyway, I live in one the most conservative parts of my state and my school therefore leans conservative with its staffing. So on the day we are studying for our big,scary finals the school schedules a fucking anti-gay assembly. Now apparently the reason why its on that day is because the speaker couldn't come any other day. So you'd rather take away our precious study time to push some rhetoric on us? I see how it is Diocese..
Luckily my dad is willing to send me out for an 'appointment' with my sister but I'm worried that will fail..Could you guys wish me luck?

Poof! Poof! Glitter Boots!

RE: The Big Scary Anti-Gay Assembly

I feel like anti-gay assemblies are like anti-smoking campaigns. You virtually guarantee by your contempt for you audience that just being there pushes kids away from your ideas. As Gatto said, the logical consequence of being told to love your neighbor is to despise your neighbor.

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.

Good luck (I do realize I'm 5 days late for this though)...

The really conservative school I went to in 7th grade wouldn't have dared to do this shit.

I am disgusted.

Friggin' religious private schools. e_e

I doubt gay people would be allowed in a school where they say this shit.

Stranger things have happened.
