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.

My school too. But we can 'airhug' and high-five, no poking though. Or hugs. Or touching. Or sex.

Re: no hugging in my school

Hugging/kissing/poking is technically banned at my school, too.

But I hug, poke, and occasionally kiss on the forehead, my friend Courtney. Sometimes all at once. No one has said anything.

Though yeah, I've heard teachers say "No PDA" to students before, and I always say "Yeah.. Put those personal digital assistants away!"

Independence limited,
Freedom of choices made for you my friend,
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend,
Freedom... with their exception.

That's what I thought it meant. For, like, a year.

Re: no hugging in my school

It's very strange when teachers get upset about students being NICE to each other but it happens where I teach as well. I think their hearts may be two sizes too small.

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

They're not being nice to each other, they're being fucking and fucking is bad.

hugging = fucking.

Re: no hugging in my school

Never really understood the whole "no PDA" thing. I could understand if two people are blocking the hallway or something, but that's less about teh PDA and more about people just being in the way. My high school banned hugging too, but they never really enforced it(except one teacher who actually looked at teh waistline of male students to make sure our shirts were tucked in).
Glad I'm out of that shit.
