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.

Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

First, read this thread.

When you next go into school, how many of your schoolmates aren't complete fuckwits? How many discuss other things from the usual crap of "omg wut did u do last nite me and my bffls went to Ocena!!!1/omg my boyfriends sooooooo hot!!!11!!1/who letf teh comment on my BeBo page!!1"? How many people know something other about politics than "obamas teh president"? How many people realize there's a economic shitstorm happening? How many people believe personality is what's important in a relationship and not looks?" Can you find any teens who aren't complete fuckwits?

Re: Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

Most if not all of my friends are retards.

All they go on about at break/lunch:

xbox 360
weapons
games
what you did last night
what you did last week
random shit you made up that you did last night


I just wish I could have a group of intelligent friends at school who have the same views on school as me, talk about different things like something big on the internet, crap from 4chan, politics, music, school system just something over than games or whatever the fuck you did last night None

Re: Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

I don't really think talking about what happens in their lives or not talking about politics, ect. make people stupid. Perhaps things like that simply don't interest them, maybe they're just tired from school, or maybe they're afraid of expressing themselves. And if those things interest you, why don't you bring them up? They may be smarter than you think.

If this is aimed at me then... I have before,completely failed and none of them put any decent input to the conversation... which lasted about 10 seconds before moving onto the 360 :/

Just because some people like to talk about different things doesn't mean they're stupid.

To them, politics is the most boring mind numbing thing they've ever had to be subjected to, apparently. Your point of view isn't the only point of view.

I can't tolerate stupidity like people who find proms and going out w/ this TOTALLY hot boy and and updating their FaceBook page EVERY FIVE MINUTES alot more interesting than something which could take away their freedom to update said FaceBook page any second. I cannot tolerate stupidity. I cannot.

If they're not interested in politics then they probably don't know it's coming. Why don't you enlighten them? Start a club or something. We have several intellectual clubs in my school.

Re: Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

Just because they don't casually talk about politics and population densities doesn't mean that they don't know what's going on, and that they're stupid.

I bet the best philosophers out there talk about what they did last night in their casual conversations.

Also, most adults talk about those things too, so I don't see how that makes teens look any stupider.

I think I detect a little irrational people hate here.

Wasn't there a whole thread on drunkenness here at one time?

Off topic: I once heard a g-rl bragging about how she got so drunk she p1ssed herself.

Well, I can't tolerate your stupidity: you misspelled 'a lot.' I think that you're a fuckwit retard because of your lack of grammatical knowledge and I refuse to accept your bullshit beliefs because you don't share my standards of the English language.

Re: Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

First, not a lot of adults are very bright either. They basically talk about the same things as teenagers. Some of them get upset because their peers "act like teenagers", but there isn't a lot "teenager-y" about it other than the slang.

Second, teenagers are stupid because they're taught to be.

Well, when I was at school, I WISHED people would talk about stuff like this. But noooo, it was all about "hawt girls/guys" and other boring stuff I can't remember anymore.

But yeah, most adults aren't very smart either. They just show their stupidity in different ways.

Re: Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

I'm not really sure how to reply to this. As far as I know, many teens (well, at least the ones that aren't in my grade level) I know at my school are actually not complete fuckwits. When it comes to love, yeah, they're fucking retards. But otherwise, they're actually pretty mature.
But for some reason, I don't want it to be that way. I don't know why, but part of me wants to see them as nothing more than oblivious, egotistical idiots, but the other part accepts that I've severely underestimated them.

Stupid child > stupid teenager > stupid adult > stupid senior

Re: Is it any suprise adults think teens are stupid?

Ok....this isn't right.

Yes, I know a lot of people (most of my friends) who aren't complete fuckwits.
Of course a lot of people at school talk about "getting high/drunk" and "partying all night"...which in my opinion is pretty stupid of them. But that doesn't mean they don't do other productive...stuff.
And when someone mentioned "they think politics are very boring...blah blah and blah", so what? I think politics are EXTREMELY boring, you're just gonna automatically put me in the retarded department?
People have different interests and passions, just because they're not what yours are, doesn't mean they're stupid.
You're not in their life 24/7, you wouldn't know everything they do. I'm not gonna judge people after hearing them say they got drunk. We all do stupid shit anyway, drugs and alcohol aren't the only things (and this is coming from someone who is very against them).
Do you know how many adults do that? And how many adults are actual fuckwits...can't raise their fucking children, act like they're not responsible for anything? People as a whole can be stupid, not just a certain age group. And people as a whole can be intelligent, this includes 4 year olds.

Have a little faith in people. We got much more to offer than that.

Politics are boring, the only time it becomes of interest is when something pisses you off.

Lol, I got to use emphasis in the statement. Whoo hoo.
