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.

This is why I love the internet. It is faceless, so people's looks really don't matter.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

That is basically the whole black generation.
even the slighty intelligent little percentage of blacks on this side only wants to fuck hoes as they call it.
Stupid niggers like using the internet to meet them too..

Drives me crazy.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

I personally hate all this "no homo" shit kids always say. For example, I saw this guy talking to his friend, and saw him saying, "I'll call you later to make plans, no homo" or "Yo, you wanna hang out, no homo." I'm not even gay and it pisses me off a lot. I facepalm whenever I hear it.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

man my mouse and keyboard messes up when I type..

I ment that the whole generation of blacks just wanna fuck and get pussy and all that crap.

They think your odd or a nerd if you actually like women for personality or tell them that theres more to do than that.

and lucky for me I haven't met anyone who does that no homo stuff yet.

I would drive their head through a cheese grater if I did.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

Oh shit. I am so happy you guys all have the same dickheads at your schools (sorry, I just realized how mean that sounds). I often go through fazes of thinking 'fuck it, why don't I just try and fit in so I don't have to go through this shit with people i hate' but threads like these reminds me that I am NOT a freak for hating pretty much everyone I go to school with.

Going back to the original post, I think teens are so stupid because of a) The Media and b) The fact that schools are so fucking boring that most kids don't want to ever obtain intelligence.

No popular kids TV contains genuinely intelligent people for kids to model themselves off. Because let's face it- at this age kids need people to look up to while their still trying to work out who they are. TV shows and films about high schools usually has a 'geek' character, who is funny, but no one wants to be them. No one thinks, 'oh, that kid's cool, I think I'll be like them'. No one likes the geek, or takes him seriously. The stupid characters are the favorites and the ones kids model themselves off.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

I like all your points, but consider another angle: they have no taste in media. The girls all like shit like Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers and other Disney crap they systematically pump out. The COOL girls, however, are the ones that listen to music i've never heard before. Oh, and anime.

The boys? The rly retarted ones keep praising Halo 3 and every Call of Duty Game after number 4. I've played Halo (but not CoD) and I consider them good games, but not the BEST EVAR. There was this one kid that said the next game I get has TOTALLY GOTTA BE COD5 OMGOMGOMGOMGOKMGOOHJDGNJHGNBAHJZSBNGF!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111111111111 Instead, I got Destroy All Humans 3. Or Left 4 Dead. Or Fallout 3, I forget. The cool boys listen to stuff like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and play games like Half-Life. There's this one kid that does listen to real rock, but thinks that "Half-Life sucks".

Gawd, listen to me ramble.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

thats one thing i havnt heard. most kids i know say call of duty 5 sucks. they would much rather just play call of duty 4

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.

It didn't suck, but it was basically the same as COD4, except it was in WWII.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

My peers are afraid of me because I use big words, and I look angry all of the time. I tell them they're asinine idiots that are being used by the system, but most of what I say is drowned out because I said the word "ass."

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

Oh god, I know how it feels. I'm one who's considered a "nerd" and "is gay" because my pants don't hang halfway down my ass. I suck because I don't listen to rap, own 34 ATVs (exaggerate), only like sex with girls, or have never done pot. I say, fuck 'em. I am me. Not some conform. I wear soccer shirts, not football. I listen to rock, not rap. I am different, so I MUST suck.

Oh, and pretty much everyone confuses the word "gay" with "stupid". Ex: "Oh, he lost, he's so gay"

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

A lot of people think I'm gay. I actually just act gay, and it's only for the lulz. And it's only when I'm with my friends that I talk about stuff that would make people question my sexuality.

PIG AIDS

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.
