    I didn't realise single gender schools still existed until university.

    I'm amazed its even legal tbh - imagine if a university or job declared itself 'men only'...

    Haha you seem pretty bitter to me, you're literally proving my point by being a *****. Why would I get upset by that, you're irrelevant to me i don't care what you think of me. I commented my opinion on this thread and if that got your panties in a twist that's your problem not mine. People usually get defensive if something is true so the only reason you're offended is because you probably are a ***** and my comment probably stung a bit because you think it's true.

    I'm bitter about being bullied because I'm arguing with you. Logic.

    Idc whether you think I'm *****y or not-that would actually be kind of a compliment.

    No, I just hate your attitude, and the fact that you call people out for acting the same way is laughable.

    You're clearly offended, hence the long paragraph of 'I don't care about you' etc, etc.

    Well done for proving my point.
    Funny how one of you is *****ing about *****y girls then the other one is *****ing about girls being called *****y. You're both as *****y as each other tbh, otherwise you wouldn't be going at it like that :holmes:

    I really don't see the point of all boys/all girls school.
    You don't get single sex jobs (mostly) or single sex university courses so why make such a big deal out of children getting education together?
    I agree

    To stop gender stereotypes from developing too early too strongly.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/health-38717926

    Even before this research now, there were studies showing girls are much more likely to take STEM subjects at an all girls school then at a co-ed.

    If I ever have girls, I will put them in an all girls school if at all possible.
    that is a fair point.
    However, I don't think its the co-ed or single-sex school system that is to blame here.
    Gender stereotypes arise (IMO) primarily due to bad parenting. Mothers raise their daughter to be 'good wives and mothers' and their sons to be 'rich heart-throbs'. Kids go to school with bad attitude already.

    I'd say the best way would be a single-sex learning environment but say clubs and social activities with a twinned opposite sex school? I realise that this might not be logistical but could be beneficial if it worked.

    I voted single sex on impulse because my all-girls secondary school was actually pretty good. Good grades, no drama, no bullies, everyone got on well with each other.

    That being said, I didn't make very many friends. I need a balance of both boys and girls, so I think I would have been much happier in a co-ed school.

    (Original post by Nirvana1989-1994)
    Not really, I just disagree with you stereotyping people like this.

    Prey tell, do you just hang around with guys because they create less drama? :rolleyes:

    As someone who has been to both co-ed and all girls' schools, I can say that co-ed schools are better for me. It depends on the student, though. However, the choice for someone to go to a single sex school is almost always made by the parent, and this can be harmful in some cases, including some that I've seen. I experience gender dysphoria, and being made to wear a skirt (my old school had no trouser option) and constantly being referred to as a girl (usually by teachers trying to get our attention by saying 'girls' or 'ladies') was seriously detrimental to my mental health. For straight, cisgender, neurotypical students, same-sex schools can be brilliant. What I also found, however, was that there was a large stigma against mental health, disability and homosexuality.

    You are. I cry myself to sleep each night, knowing I will never live up to your greatness. In fact, most nights I don't even sleep.

    And, if you must know, I accumulated these red gems from butthurt users back in the good ol' days of 'neg-repping' but of course you're far too young to know what I'm talking about. Isn't it past your bedtime, young'un?
