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.

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.

Re: Why are kids and teens so stupid?

I fucking hate 90% of today's youth.
Today, in health, we're starting a unit on human sexuality. This was started with a video that was an interview with teens and dating/sex/dicks/etc. and at the end, there was a short opinion-based thing where we were asked what we look for in a partner. The replies? "I want someone who's hot!"
"I want someone who's totally ripped!"
"Someone who's fun in... uh... [laugh]"
I answered, "Someone who is understanding and who I can trust." Everyone in the room stared at me like I was some alien, and then some people started laughing and asking me if I was serious and if I ever want to get a girlfriend.
That's not funny. America is screwed. This generation is fucked up beyond my worst nightmares.

I have extremely severe acne. It's a genetic thing - my dad had it, my uncle had it, my grandfather had it, and my grandmother had it as well. But according to everyone I know, I have "AIDS." I later found out that AIDS is a term in my school used by the student body to describe any kind of disease/infection/whatever, regardless of what it is. Seriously, how fucking stupid can you be that the only disease you can think of is "AIDS"? What the fuck?

Not to mention, approximately 99% of my school's student body can't type for shit. I can't read half of the stuff they're saying. And whenever I'm trying to go upstairs, I'm always caught behind a group of giggling little oblivious schoolgirl-esque girls giggling and talking about their boyfriends and walking at less than 1/4th of a mile an hour and taking up the entire row so there's no room for anyone to walk through. Up until last month, I just tolerated it, but now, I just plow through them. I don't give a shit. And they call me "rude." Oh, really? What about you? You're fucking blocking my way. You're rude. You need to get out of my way. If you don't I'm just going to fucking push you out of the way.

What happened to this generation's common sense?
