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.

Wh1skers Wrote:Yeah, my school is pretty much the same. They hate on gay people, black people and naturally they all hate English people. (God I hate Scotland some times.) Intelligence is always met with harsh words and insults. Then they turn into two faced asses, begging me for help with a test or whatever. The funniest thing though is, none of them think I'm gay. I'm considered very much straight, so much so that when I told some of my friends they were like "Yeah, right. Very funny Craig!" for a while. It's stupid, they all just automatically assume you have to be stupidly camp and flamboyant to be gay.


THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES! BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE..! OUR! FREEDOOOOOM!

Anyway, people at my school call me gay because I'm bi. They also call me satanic and try to 'rip the devil' from me, just because I like metal and rock. Doesn't really help that I constantly sign 'horns' and say 'SAAATAAAAAN' in class.
