75.110.8.8

I am still not completely sure what topic I am going to write about for my essay. Before this morning I was planning on writing about how age does not matter in adult relationships. Since then I have had some other ideas I am still considering for the argument paper, like “Animals should not be used for research”, “There are no benefits to attending single-sex schools”, or “Healthy competition between people is good”.
I am interested in these topics for the argument essay because I think they make a good and strong argument and some even have a good counter argument. The topic about the animals not being used for research is something I feel strongly about but I am leaning more towards the topic about the fact that there are no benefits to attending single-sex schools because I was in one for a few years and even though I am not going to use my opinion in the paper I know what it is like and I am against attending single-sex schools. The topic about healthy competition between people being good is something that I am interested in writing about if the other two topics are not going to work.
The counter arguments for these topics can also be strong. People can say that animals should be used for research because there would be severe consequences if a product was not tested and given to the public or if we tested on humans. I argue that animals do not have a say in all this so it is not fair to them to be poked and tested all the time and kept in areas that are not familiar or beneficial to them as animals.
Some can argue that attending single-sex schools is better because the students will not focus so much on relationships or feelings for one another and more on their studies. I can argue that being in a single-sex school limits your interaction with the opposite sex and once you get out in the real world and need to interact with different sexes you do not always know how to or you are not comfortable with it.
Some will argue that competition is not good because some people are too sensitive or emotionally unstable to handle losing a competition to another person. I argue that competition is good because it builds your confidence and it strengthens your ability to be a good winner and loser.
