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.

Why the fucking ageism?

Why do people always have to reference something that sucks to something a "X year old"?
"This sucks. It's like something a 12 year old would do. Meh."
"You write like an 8 year old."
It's everywhere, and it's pissing me off more and more, that I had to rant about it. It's just insulting everyone in an age group.

Re: Why the fucking ageism?

It's only funny if you say "retarded three year old" I don't know why, but everything else is just "meh"

Re: Why the fucking ageism?

Yup it's annoying. They're this 17 year old girls i know who thinks she's so special because she's older.
She says things like this "It's too comlicated for your young mind to understand, kthxbai" (she said that to an 18 year old lmao) She often says i'm 7. I don't see why, a lot of people say i act a lot more mature than she does. :/ She also tries to believe she's smarter because she's older >.> Like anyone who hasn't been through highschool isn't really smart if they get good grades because "it doesn't matter in middleschool, only highschool matters" Another thing she often does is "I hate it when little middleschoolers think they can write well (or something like that)" Yes because highschoolers are multi-award winning authors. Gah i hate her...and her little crew of bitches and bastard, 'cept Amanda, she's nice to me.
It just disgusts me why someone thinks they're better than someone because of age, race, heritage etc. etc.

I'm a girl ffffeck

Re: Why the fucking ageism?

You write like a senile 120-year old.

... yeah. Doesn't really work as well.

Actually, I have crazy friends and they/we all consider ourselves to have the brains of retarded 3-year-olds, so to us it's actually a bit more like a compliment. Shrug

I totally agree with you, but sometimes it's so hard to avoid it. I mean, it's hard to find any other idiom which could describe it enough good as "infantile" and "childish" does, but without any discrimination or ageism. So, I don't think all people using such words are necessarily ageist, that is like a habit, it entered their vocabulary.

"There are no educators. As a thinker, one should speak only of self-education. The education of youth by others is either an experiment, conducted on one as yet unknown and unknowable, or a leveling on principle, to make the new character, whatever it may be, conform to the habits and customs that prevail."

oh and also No one has any rights. We're free, rights create invisible restrictions. But we live in a society where the majority accepts rights to be true.
