With regard to your first post (the first after Bob revived this four year-old thread yesterday by posing as me to post his smut) I agree completely with what you say about single-sex education. Historically, it had to do with preparing boys and girls for the dramatically different roles they would play in society as adults. That distinction no longer exists. To prepare children to work and to live together--and, indeed, to compete with one another--as equals, it only does them harm to reinforce through segregated schools, classes and activities, throughout their formative years, their identities as men or women as having precedence over their identities as citizens and as individuals to whom the same opportunities are available and the same responsibilities are conferred.

What is it with these adult "men" resorting to multiple identities behind which they hide... And on occasion use to actually converse with themselves!
