Evidently some point is being made here, but I'm at a loss as to what it is.

The point is that if you're against "separate development", you should be against it in all circumstances.

But you didn't give your opinion in your opening post, so I've no idea whether you're for or against it in this instance. It would be helpful if you let the rest of us know which side of the argument you're on.

Why should he? He just comes up with a subject. Discuss if you're interested. In due course PDR's opinion may become clear. Or not.

I didn't seek an argument - I just asked a question.

Strange way to conduct a debate. Anyway, just for the record, I'm not in favour of single-sex education (despite having been through it myself).

Here we go again - Guy is telling us we're doing it all wrong...

Asking a question doesn't equal wishing to open up a debate. The latter may follow from the former, but a debate is not sought as for now. Apparently. His right.

@PDR: Well, if you want a debate about something, you need to advance a point of view. If you don't, why are you bothering?

@'yorz: OK, if we're taking PDR's initial question literally, my answer is "I don't know". Nor can anyone else.

HE WAS JUST ASKING A BLOODY QUESTION.

To which no one can conceivably know the answer, unless they've got a crystal ball.

I assumed he was trying to start a debate. What other point would there have been to the question?

I'm just interested in peoples' thoughts on the consequences of this judgement. I appreciate that I'm one of the world's greatest philosophers and regarded as the biggest influencer of peoples' views, but it is actually possible for people to form their own views without checking they align with mine first, you know.

Well I've given you my thoughts. I don't know. Nor can anyone else under the current circumstances.

What if I'd said "yes"? Would that have condemned all single-sex schools to oblivion?

Thankyou. Noted.

There you go again, telling everyone else what they are allowed to do. Please stop doing this. This is the 14th post in this thread and as yet only a small part of one response relates to the subject, and thanks to your rantings it's highly unlikely anyone else will bother. Are you proud of that?

I refer you to my previous posts on my opinion of your views - something you have only confirmed here.
