    Hi
    I've been asked by my teacher to do a first draft of my discursive essay for my folio over the summer and I'm really struggling to decide on my topic. I want to do something unique and interesting. The only two things that have popped into my head are:
    -Should tampons be taxed? (not sure if this is too weird)
    -Hoodies and the stereotype of teenage hooligans
    I also have to write a literature review first which means I will need to do lots of research and find information on my topic. If anyone has any ideas for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks
