    Whats your reasoning behind number 2. As I think a well educated work force would improve the economy, for example we have a shortage of Engineers and IT specialists. So If we could intice Young people with the option of a free degree to study these subjects. Wouldn't that be better than outsourcing from abroad and create more employment.
    Yeah, I suppose I would agree on free tuition for STEM students (funnily enough that is one of UKIP's policies).

    But engineers, software and the like, have like the highest salaries of all jobs bar law/finance. So student loan isn't that big of a deal tbh. Well unless one is going into research.
    But yeah as long as it is only accredited STEM degrees, would definitely pay off in the long run for the UK and its technology industries

    When obese people preach about self acceptance and loving yourself the way you are. Of course, we should be confident about ourselves to be happy but telling someone that being technically unhealthy is "beautiful" is not right. It's one thing promoting body confidence, it's another promoting unhealthy body confidence. Whether it's lack of self control or a medical issue causing the excess weight, it's still unhealthy and nothing to be "proud" of. We should promote good health.

    I agree. I don't see how it's any different to promoting anorexia, or glorifying smoking as cool and attractive. Yes it is ultimately their decision to do those things, but it should not be promoted or encouraged. It sends out a completely wrong message, and I think it's a case where "think of the children" is a pretty valid argument.

    You wouldn't bully someone who was anorexic - but you wouldn't just let them continue that way and say there is nothing wrong with that. You'd at least try to do something about it or get someone else to.

    Definitely yes! Your last point is true especially. You'd never tell someone who was severely underweight that's it's ok and to "love the way they are" because we can literally see the damaging effects.

    Glad you agree

    My controversial view is that many Sunni Muslims agree with isis on the sly. They are like 'the silent majority' giving no comment but actually agree with some/most or even all of what isis is doing.

    This is coming from a Muslim btw

    I think that in poor countries where people are having children which they cannot look after sterilisation should be offered and the person gets paid to get sterilised. I think it's sometimes necessary

    Jails should be stripped to the bare minimums like pre Victorian times. No electrics, hardly any free time, no recreational activities just 30 mins of fresh air a day and a room to themselves with just four grey walls, a concrete bed and a dim light.

    Don't want to face the punishment, don't do the crime!!!

    That won't solve any problems though, prison should be about rehabilitation not punishment. Studies have shown time and time again prisoners who are treated like dirt and given no support inside or outside of prison are more likely to re offend. So in the short term it may satisfy your need for petty revenge, but in the long term it's not stopping the crime cycle. Just look it up, the countries with the lowest re-offend rates treat their prisoners like human being beings and most importantly re-rehabilitate them both inside and outside of prison.

    Okay so I don't have any problems with transexuals personally, I in fact know one. But I have a difficult time seeing her as a girl and she's still a guy in my eyes. Am I prejudiced? :/ I'm so confused like I try to see her as a girl but to me she's still a guy, no matter how hard I try. And the thing is she's actually a really hot 'girl' but I can't see her as that. And like I never really thought about it until the other day, I asked my boyfriend if he would ever sleep with a transexual girl and he's like if he was super hot he would sleep with her and that's creeping me out a bit, like I am not comfortable with that and yeah. I feel so bad for thinking this way though Can someone shed some light on this? Am I like a weird version of homophobe? Which I don't understand either since I am bisexual myself.
    Really don't think this is the best place to ask love. There are some real haters on here. I think maybe you should read up on it and watch some documentaries, if you know more about it than you can form an opinion. I don't think you are homophobic, I think that fact you are so worried about it proves you are a good and accepting person. Maybe start with Transgender kids on the BBC iplayer.
