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.

Movies where you sympathize with "bad guy"

I like these movies. Movies where the "bad guy" isn't really that bad...a simple example would be Robin Hood. Or a movie where the bad guy is the protagonist like American Psycho. I like movies that just give you the view from the other side. Has anyone seen Let Me In? That's sort of what I mean, the girl is a vampire, who kills people but falls in love with a human boy. This is NOT Twilight. Trust me, watch it or research it.
Anyone have any movies they'd like to recommend?

Taxi Driver (NOT THE ONE WITH QUEEN LATIFA FFS, The one with Robert De Niro) is one of my favorites movies. Not really sure if Travis can be considered a "Bad Guy" but he is no saint. Very good movie. In my top 5.

I almost did. I was supposed to go with someone I was dating at the time, but by the time we decided to leave, we missed the movie. So, we saw My Soul to Take. Which I feel for the main character. Living with a crazy murder for a dad and possibly being possessed by his evil spirit :/ I feel bad for the guy. Oh, great movie though.

I'm back~

Re: Movies where you sympathize with "bad guy"

Lets see..
One I can remember off the top of my head was Falling down and yeah I liked taxi driver too.
The main character realizes society lied to him and because of feminism society can never see his daughter so he declares war. The quote he says to the cop summed it up at the end.

"I'm the bad guy?"

Same here.
For some reason the light side really was retarded to me and really erked. I mean they think there way is good? Oh, we're for the republic when you have rulers? Fuck that. I also hated Yoda.

To be an anarchist, is to suffer greatly. To be a black woman is to suffer secretly. To be the earth, is to suffer silently.

I wish no harm on anyone, but those whose harmful ways will not stop without the same harm.

It's time we kill this cancerous system, before it kills us and everything left of gaia. Rise from our immaturity and take back our autonomy!

The light side were a bunch of hypocritical douchebags who wanted everybody to live through their way and yoda was a prick too(except for his memes). Least star wars knights of the old republic shows the jedi for what they truly were.

Re: Movies where you sympathize with "bad guy"

The hyenas from Lion King. Yes they're, well, the bad guys, but the lions pulled a total dick move and forced them to live in that shitty elephant graveyard (one hell of a graveyard if it was just for elephants, btw), which was likely the reason they became the bad guys to begin with.

Movies were complete shit.
I only liked knights of the old republic video game series.

I tend to sympathize with the bad guy in any John Wayne movie.

They in the sea being burnt, they in the burnt ship drowned.

Re: Movies where you sympathize with "bad guy"

Really? No one? The Boondock Saints. They weren't exactly good. But, you know. I suppose everybody in the godfather movie is a bad guy.

"Ask them no more questions, never hear them lying"

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

Movies where you sympathize with "bad guy"

Man Of Steel.

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
