It's a pretty stupid theory, especially since coeducation didn't start becoming widespread until the 1900's. The assumption of single-sex schooling somehow turning people homosexual is tantamount to claiming that most, if not, all of our ancestors that went to school were homosexual.

No, I sincerely doubt you'll "catch gay" from going to a one gender school.

Big sis went to an all girls school from 6 to 11. I went to an all girls school from 12-16. We're not gay. Where we went to school that country only recently decided to stream according to gender to stop distractions and prevent gender stereo typing. It's also a cheap way for schools to see overall performance rise. All state school became single sex. The only exceptions were some religious schools that don't segregate though most of them do anyway and associate school who only get partial government funding. Private schools may do as they wish.

This can work as long as there is provision for socialising with the opposite sex some of the time. Parents also need to plan for out of school mixed socialisation. That's needed because some children could end up getting to 18 and not knowing how to interact with the opposite sex. We were paired with a boy's school who we called our brother school. Sometimes we went there for some events or in my case to practice with the choir for a special event.

I do know someone who's gay who never attended a single sex school.

for girls who attended single gender school, how did your school compare to single gender schools shown in anime?
ex. Maria-sama ga Miteru
anime makes it seem as all the female students are refined (evident if you know your keigo - or Japanese honorific speech),
and the school is portrayed as beautiful, with a large swimming pool and garden

srs asnwers pls

I don't see what the big deal is. The gender of my classmates does not really affect me.

I gues around when puberty starts horomones strart racing around and people have needs that are manipulated by their enviornment. So some then people start swinging according to what they want. Of course this isn't true for everyone.

I went to an all-guys Catholic high school. I knew of two gay kids in my four years, and they were quiet (and together). There was some mild curiosity about why they were gay, and some heated discussions in theology class, but they were proud of who they were and didn't bother anyone with their sexual identities.
If anything, students from gender-specific schools seem to lean more towards homophobic, though in the case of my school, there was more of an unspoken understanding to simply leave the sexual orientation card alone, rather than ostracism.

Refined? Our football team were deemed too rough when they had to play against the catholic girls' school. I didn't attempt to join the hockey team after I heard how they'd swing those sticks at each other. Our school had a lovely lawn going all the way up the hill and it did have a lovely garden with shrubs and some big trees. We'd get hummingbirds there. When the school first opened in my mother's days they used to wear these straw like hats with their pleated tunic checked uniforms and cycle down the steep hill turning sharply at the base to get into the street. Reminds me a bit of that hill in Yowepeda at the school. Our generation didn't have to deal with hats and no one thought of cycling to school. We could just undress in the the classrooms because well everyone one was female including the teachers for years until we got one male teacher.

We also had neighbours' chickens that ventured out on the lawn and some dogs. One day the school got fed up and called the dog catchers in. Mid class the catchers were trying to round up the dogs, girls jump out of the windows (ground floor classes did, first floor had to use their balconies) to cheer the dogs on to run away from the catchers. One home time two dogs got caught literally stuck together in the act. We had a good laugh.

The only swimming pool the school got use of was by arrangement of going to the local YMCA. I declined that because I'd had swimming lessons already.

We had a prefect system. The chosen ones had their prefect badges and had a little authority. You had to be at least 15-16 to be chosen. There was a head prefect or head girl who'd be 17-19. We never had to clean classrooms save emptying the waste paper bin. That was for the cleaners and caretaker to sort out.

On sports day we'd book the international sports stadium for track and field events and we'd be allocated tickets for our families. Many would adopt brothers for the day (boyfriends) that came along. One year they got fed up with that and banned visitors from sports days.

The school had all sorts, some refined others not, some rebels, some quiet ones, some rowdy, some sporty, some studious, some not, some only focused on fashion and some a mix of everything.

Well, considering homosexuality is more biological than psychological and that gender and sexuality are social constructs... I find it arguably difficult to say being in a homogeneous environment with a single gender is going to really determine your sexuality.

Furthermore, it's this type of thinking on the lines of generalization where we assume everyone in the same room has the same beliefs and feelings. Everyone might be at an ice cream store, but everyone has a preferred flavor most likely that differs from the others.

you can't become gay from going to one gendered school, watching gay movies, being near gay people, eating chickens, being raised by single mothers etc etc.

These are myths perpetuated by brainless people of society with double digit IQ most likely.

Any more questions?



Do you think somebody who is no gay may become curious thou ?
