because of today's society, i feel that single genders do more harm than good because there will be more single sexes geting together. there will also be more of the same genders getting together. it will be uncomfortaness in schools and environments.

I thank my opponent for starting this debate, and I ask that the voters vote based on the arguments presented.

I affirm, "single gendered schools do more harm than good."

My opponent is CON in this debate, and thus must disprove this resolution. She may either say that they do more good than harm, or that they do equal good and harm. However, her first round statement does not agree with this. She seems to be agreeing with me. I don't know why, but she does.If I have no opposition, you must vote PRO.

With that said, this is my opening statement why single gender schools do more harm than good.

Just sixteen, a pickup truck, out of money, out of luck.
I've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas, and here I go.

Chorus:
I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Spent the night in an L. A. jail, and listened to the sirens wail.
They ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild, I'm running free.

Chorus

Pulled her at the Bottle Top, whiskey, dancing, disco hop.
Now all the boys are after me, and that's the way it's gonna be

Longboats have been sighted the evidence of war has begun
Many Nordic fighting men their swords and shields all gleam in the sun
Call to arms defend yourselves get ready to stand and fight for your lives
Judgement day has come around so be prepared don't run stand your ground

They're coming in from the sea
they've come the enemy
beneath the blazing sun
the battle has to be won
Invaders ... Pillaging
Invaders ... Looting

Set ablaze the campfires alert the other men from inland
Warning must be given there's not enough men here for a stand
The Vikings are too many too powerful to take on our own
We must have reinforcements we cannot fight this battle alone

They're coming over the hill
they've come to attack
they're coming in for the kill
there's no turning back
Invaders ... Fighting
Invaders ... Marauding

Axes grind and maces clash as wounded fighters fall to the ground
Severed limbs and fatal woundings bloody corpses lay all around
The smell of death and burning flesh the battle weary fight to the end
The Saxons have been overpowered victims of the mighty Norsemen

You'd better scatter and run
the battle's lost and not won
you'd better get away
to fight another day
Invaders ... Raping
Invaders ... Plundering

"there will also be more of the same genders getting together"

Why is this a problem. What right do you have to care about what other people are doing. They don't affect you. Why did you say something like that

Why do I even care lol

Voted PRO for obvious reasons

"I feel the same way mia and i think that it will make the opposite sex uncomfortable with each other because it takes them out of the comfort zone and away from what they are used to. this is a topic that needs to be talked about and i'm glad you raised this issue."

Wha? If children went to school with only people of the same sex how would that make them uncomfortable?

"there will also be more of the same genders getting together."

Where exactly is your grounds for that.

You should be "pro". You are FOR your opening statement, even though you are AGAINST single gender schools. You would be "con" if your statement was: "Single gender schools do more good than harm."

This might cause confusion among your debater / voters.
