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.

Abortion

I just open this account and I've been trying to find a way to post something about abortion. I personally believe that women should be allowed to make their own choices about abortion. I'm sorry to say this but, I don't think men should have any input on the matter. Even though it took two people to make the child. The woman is the one who is effected by it the most. Having a child is a serious thing and men don't always step up to the plate and do what they're supposed to. Some guys say they want kids and then when reality sets in they bail. Just ranting because I'm in boring minors Bored

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I disagree in my opinion, maybe the reason why men 'leave' is because it affects them the most. Also, I believe, for the child to be raised well, it needs more than a mother. It needs at least a father figure if not the father himself.

Also, there are alot of mothers who don't step up to the plate and do what they are supposed to, a quick example being having a child with someone they know to not be in love with them in the first place.

Sorry, I just get annoyed since I know a lot of single Dads and I feel sorry for mine.

This is just my opinion. Also, when I say 'it' above, I mean He/She.

Re: Abortion

I'm not saying that all men are like that I'm just saying their is a high percentage of men who leave women when they are pregnant. Women for the mot part are compassionate creatures who look for someone to care about them. I just believe that when something like an unwanted baby happens who should have the final decision because after all every woman that gets pregnant wants the baby or intended for it to happen. I'm talking about for example teen couples. The girl should have the final say after its her body and and she's the one that would get stuck with the baby if the guy changes his mind

Takes two to have a baby - both parents should have input.

Both parents should have input no doubt but at the end of the day it's mother decision. I guess what i was trying to say was abortion shouldn't be illegal Bored

Re: Abortion

I have no problem with abortion, but only as long the pregnancy leading up to it was caused by (date) rape and/or faulty contraceptives (condoms, birth control pills, what have you). If you went and got laid out of lust and selfish desires and used NO contraceptives whatsoever, screw you, you should take care of the child you've made. Know what I mean?

Re: Abortion

Abortion is ageist.

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

I still stay by the belief that it should only be used in rape cases. Possibly a broken condom also.

Re: Abortion

Why does (perceived) irresponsibility or carelessness matter?

If abortion is basically wrong, it's wrong regardless of that, although it could sometimes be the lesser evil. If it isn't wrong, then why should there be such restrictions?

Re: Abortion

Abortion is murder when a woman consensually has sex. She has brought a life into the world and is reponsible for it. If the man was not raped he is also responsible.

When a woman is raped and is expected to have a normal pregnancy, the killing of the child outweighs her pains. Remember, it is better to suffer injustice than to commit it.

There are only two justifable cases of abortion. The first is when the pregnancy is the result of her rape and the woman is likely to die. The second is when both mother and child are likely to die.

I've never let my school interfere with my education.

This isn't always true, some women would look at their kids and relive that night, it would be horrific. Though, in that case, I think I would choose adoption.

Re: Abortion

I think being killed is worse than emotional scarring but this is a fuzzy line. My main point is that regardless of contraception, people are responsible for their kids. If they are not responsible, being pregnant is essentially a crime of assault which needs to be balanced with the life of the child.

Re: Abortion

If the male wants it aborted, and the female doesn't, fuck the female. If she wants to keep it, so be it, but the male shouldn't have to pay for it. He's made his decision clear.

Also, if either of the parents want it aborted, regardless of which one it is, it should be aborted. No exceptions. Fuck the sexist society I've grown up in, I'm not gonna bow down to someone merely because of their gender.

Re: Abortion

I was rasied with the belief that abortion is wrong but the feeling doesn't run through my veins. I would have kill a child before it is born when it doesn't have memory or is not a whole person than to torture and kill when it becomes full grown person lving and breathing like we do which would could be the result if the parent really doesn't want the child

Re: Abortion

This discussion makes me remember why I hate humans. At the end of they day if people didn't rape people or people waited until they got married and wanted to be with one person instead of whoring around with everyone people wouln't have to worry about unwanted pregnacies and then abortion wouldn't have to come into the picture. People are greedy and just want everything and everyone so when they get preganant by the wrong person they want to kill the child. I dislike the species Bored

Re: Abortion

Birth control over abortion.

And COMMON FUCKING SENSE when it comes to sex.
If only people were with one person in their life, we wouldn't have things like jealousy, whoring, sex carried diseases, and unwanted children.
Fuck yeah, I'm insane for viewing non-virgins as "tainted", but I'm at least proud of where I stand.
It's easier to be a whore than to hold it in. APPLIES TO MEN TOO!

He made his decision clear when he had sex. The woman can agree to take all responsibility for the child but simply saying "I would prefer to murder my child" doesn't make his debt magically disappear.
