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.

School's Link to Fascism

Am I the only one who has noticed the link of school systems to fascism?You have little to no rights, and if you break a rule ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶g̶e̶t̶ ̶s̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶g̶u̶l̶a̶g̶ you have severe punishments.And this may not be so related, but these fascist schools usually try to silence better options stating things like 'Kids need to be TAUGHT how to learn' not 'Kids learn better when left alone to learn.'

I sexually Identify as a T-34 Van Tank. Ever since I was a van I dreamed of rolling over the oilfields shooting hot sticky shells at disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a Van is Impossible and I’m fucking retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install Tank Tracks and A 76.2mm cannon on my body.From now on I want you guys to call me “Vansty” and respect my right to kill from below and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a vanaphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

sounds more like run of the mill authoritarianism to me

not as though schools are ruled by one bloke with free reign to do whatever the fuck he wants

better to not compare political systems to schools, apples and oranges and whatnot.

True, but the point is that instead of having a fascist/authoritarian type of system we should have more freedoms and not be forced to go to schools and whatnot.

If you take out the starvation, freezing to death in your sleep, forced labor in sub-zero conditions with inadequate clothing, rape, torture, isolation... then yeah.

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.
