Oh. Shots fired.

I attend an all girls college and it's grand. Sure there are coed colleges that are associated with the university I attend, and I'm allowed to take classes at those colleges as well, but I much prefer the all girl setting.

Always been in coed schools and I think I prefer coed schools. I've always interacted with girls a little more than with guys; so if I had gone to an all boys school, I'm sure things would be very different now and I'd most likely be socially awkward with women. So I'm glad I went to coed schools.

Do you think it's better to attend an all-girls school/college or an all-boys school/college?

Personally, I attend an all girls school, I think it has it's pros and cons.
Pros, it empowers women, how to be independent and strong despite living in a very sexist environment (at least where I live)
Cons. I'm clueless about interacting with males and I know that when I finish school it's going to be very weird and hard to adapt.

Also Girls can be.. very special and they love gossip, gosh...

Well that's my opinion...


I can't say that I ever -attended- a school that was like this, however when I was still in the Army I was part of an all male unit as our job wasn't open to females.

I can't really say anything extra came from being segregated like that, being guys we were just a bit more competitive towards one another but also had each others backs like nothing else.

Personally in a -school- environment I feel like this is bad. Males and Females growing up together learn how to interact with one another and if done right how to respect one another. When you segregate the sexes like this you end up with both sides graduating with little to no experience with the opposite sex and NO idea with how to really interact with them. Both create pre-conceptions of what it should be like and thats just bad for everyone.

For me personally I would have hated it. I can't get along with other girls at all. I had a couple of male friends and that was it.

When I was in primary school the girls and boys sat at different lunch tables. It was like a war zone, like someone drew a red line between the boys and girls tables and if you passed it, people will throw things at you. Teachers would punish you by putting you in a table that was opposite of your gender. It was just bad.

Never attended one, but probably wouldn't care either way--I adapt quickly and easily to different environments.

I relate to the teacher thing.


We had an attractive music teacher join the school once and girls were following him around and trying to switch to his class. It was so inappropriate but the funny part is that he was a lanky ginger.


Yeah, the thing is a lot of teachers retired last year and... well you might guess what happen.

School is now a constant mayhem of gossip and facebook stalking teachers

Just saying guys its not at all bad! It's a fun experience though I can't compare since I've never been to a mixed school. I would not imagine myself at a mixed school sincerely.


I can't imagine myself in an all-girls school. All my best friends have been boys, and all my bullies were girls....it would be hell for me to not have my male companions mixed school is the best^^

It's generally upheld by law that there are more reasons to separate by gender than by race. Look at it this way. EVERY girl has a vagina. But any assertion that states X race is generally smarter than y race is contentious. Unlike gender, the only real constant difference is skin color and ethnic heritage, and even then, that's not completely accurate.

If I swapped out 'race' for 'gender' is it not contentious?

What 'real constant difference' would you say gender offers that would deem it substantially worthy to segregate educational opportunities?

I suppose, I'm of a differing opinion on this compared to most. I see the rewards of integration much higher than those of segregation (even gender)--though not in its immediate results. The only worthy segregation to be made is without barring. To offer a rigorous math course path and one less so--for example. Perhaps even to offer an English course more verbally taught and one more visually taught. Another, to offer classes more independently studied and those not. Online classes and offline. Etc.

I was not necessarily talking about education in that sense. For example, black only restrooms compared to gender segregated restrooms.

And yes, it is contentious. I ignored it. Thank you. :(
