"If school schedules were to change now so 16-year-olds will go to college I think more people would take more gap years and eventually give up on going to school, so I agree that if students were to graduate earlier they'd be too young."
"People in Britain also have a school schedule set up where every month/few months(?) they get around 3 weeks of school off and then continue school once more. I find this system better than what the U.S. has set up currently."
"I honestly believe that paparazzi should be illegalized. Their entire existence is to get pictures of people who barely ever want it and tell lies about them or exaggerate events that occurred while taking the picture. They make celebrities…"
As an American, you usually attend school for 14 years, including preschool and kindergarten. Is this a rational system set up by our government? Many people also decide to attend college which brings up those years to 16-18 years. The reason…
"Sunlight is more beneficial for the human body, but I'd prefer days to be darker. I don't like the sun, it's hot and bright, when the moon's out, outside it is cool/colder and darker, I prefer that. However, the need to take vitamin D supplements…"
"I think most AI that you ask questions to are useless. They're just for fun purposes besides article writers like Chat GPT. Adding on, the AI in My AI is incredibly rudimentary and isn't useful, instead of something like Chat GPT. Most social media…"
"Big cities could offer more opportunities for people, but it all depends on someone's personal preference. Whether you want to live in the country or in a big city is your choice. I'm planning on moving to a smaller city, in a place similar to…"
"This is only one case of this happening, where someone transgender detransitioned only to go back into male powerlifting. I think the entire trans-sports argument is stupid. Who cares if someone does something better than someone else, get better.…"
"Learning a foreign language is always a fun and sometimes eye-opening experience in learning other cultures. However, people should not be required to learn a separate language from their own to be allowed into certain colleges. Going to a foreign…"
"Netflix has become less popular with its lack of ability to provide an interesting streaming service to its users. As an average user of Netflix, there usually isn't much on Netflix that piques my interest. I usually only stick to movies and shows…"
"Your age shouldn't depend on when you're required to wear a seatbelt. Everyone should always wear a seatbelt no matter their age, comfort, or inconvenience. Seatbelts are incredibly effective and save lives every day. Teens can be categorized as…"
"TikTok shouldn't be banned, that's it. But, the bill that's trying to pass that is banning TikTok only has the headline of banning TikTok. This bill also gives more privacy to online users in general. Most people don't want their data used at all,…"
"Students should have an optional religious class on all forms of religion, not just one (like Christianity). One religion should not be prioritized over others in school, that is what churches of that religion are for. Adding on, the religious…"
"While I believe vaping and smoking shouldn't be compared, as both of them are still bad, I still believe that they shouldn't be banned. That's taking away freedom from people who don't want to change, it will cause withdrawal or they will just get…"
"While I'm not a vegan, I could foresee a future where I am. Usually, when I'm given food to eat, it isn't vegan, but if I were, I wouldn't refuse it, because I don't care. Veganism may be unhealthy to people, but I don't mind what other people do…"
"While you're allowed to have opinions on transgender people, your response has nothing to do with the topic. Whether people should change was never a question presented in the post. This post is about gender-affirming care."
"Transgender care should be provided to transgender kids after some sort of therapy. I believe children deserve transgender care, but they should at least be evaluated before they make a decision they may regret in the future. Adding on to that, care…"
"Subjectively speaking, this may be true. People may begin to steal things more because they'd feel less guilty. But, since the medication they need is more affordable, it will decrease stealing. According to "FIRST Security NZ", inflation in the…"
"I understand where you are coming from, but sometimes people are dealt an unlucky hand in life, which can cause the need for stealing things they require. Sometimes the family you were born into isn't wealthy at all and you struggle to live on a…"
"The government needs to step in to help regulate the pricing of medication in the United States. These companies do not need the money they are regurgitating out of consumers. Life should not depend on whether a company decides to lower its prices…"
"I believe with the large amounts of medication that are bought each year (Not to mention how sales would skyrocket if the price went down), that the people who work those jobs wouldn't need to be laid off or have their wages lowered."
"The amount of money that it costs Americans to buy required medication, compared to other countries, is scary. I agree with you when you mention companies lowering costs, most medications cost lower than fractions of the cost they're bought for to…"
"Some companies can help people gain resources they do not have. These organizations, however, depend on taxpayer money that many people do not want to pay. If more people need these resources from these companies, then taxes will go up. How do you…"
"I agree. Something that people need, potentially to survive, should not be at the exorbitant price that it is. The government needs to step in and begin to control or regulate the prices of medication. Medication companies in the U.S. compared to…"
"That could be the case: where people continue to steal things even after the prices are lowered. But, do you think that the crime of stealing would decrease? Do you think it would decrease a substantial amount, to the point where stealing isn't a…"
"I see where you are coming from. Morality plays a huge role in this discussion. Although stealing things from a store is illegal, people will still feel terrible for removing a person's right to something they cannot afford, but something that they…"
"Maturity does not increase the likelihood or less likelihood of whether a person will get into an accident. The legal driving age is acceptable the way it is, I believe. It should not be lowered or increased. To try and change the legal driving age…"
To begin this topic, we will discuss medication. People do not realize the importance of lowering the cost of medicine. Medicines that are required for you, your families, your friends, and your pets to survive are almost always ungodly…
"Objectively speaking, technology in the workforce is incredibly helpful as well as being a big liability. Technology has a tendency to break or do things wrong, so to have a job that completely relies on the existence of technology usually isn't a…"
"Generally, electric vehicles do actually help the environment, though with the amount of money it costs to buy/repair/charge, it isn't worth the small amount of help to the environment. If everyone else is choosing to keep a gas-driven car, then why…"
"To some extent the internet is making us stupider, it really just depends on the person who's using it. Using the internet as a source of information isn't a bad thing, either, because the information we get from the internet is information other…"
"Extraterrestrial life is not bound by our solar system. The things we believe to harbor the galaxy are probably specs in a giant universe we've barely discovered. There could; however, be alien lifeforms that are more like us, human-like. Though, I…"
"At the very least, basic math/algebra is a required skill to live your life, especially because of society's reliance on math. There are a few math subjects we learn that people, who aren't going into a math-centered career, wouldn't need to know.…"
"Technology is replacing some of the working class, but this could be beneficial for businesses. If a business is running low on workers, the business can replace a simple job and give the worker that originally had the job a new one or jobs could…"
"No, guns' entire purpose of existing is to kill or injure people, and giving people the freedom to create such a dangerous weapon whenever they want will certainly lead to disaster. 3-D printed guns if allowed, at the bare minimum, should have to go…"
"My study hall is in the middle of the day, and I believe it's beneficial for my work ethic. School is the only time when I feel comfortable working on projects. Whenever I try to work outside of school, or at home, it becomes too stressful for me,…"
"People should have a right to choose to or not vote, it should not be a required thing, enforced by laws or something of the sort. Most of the people who don't vote either do it because they don't like either presidential candidate, don't care who…"
