how name-Calling effects people?

Write a 3 paragraph blog about how name-calling affects people.
How powerful is the language that we use? Why do people call each other names? How often do you call people names? Do you think about how the person might feel when you call them the name? How often do you see others being called name? Is there anyone in your school who is teased for being Gay? How do you think people feel when they are constantly teased?
Why does Petrocelli call Steve a "Monster"? What metaphors do you compare people to when you name call? How does Steve feel about being called a monster? What does he doe after he is called a monster? Do you think Steve feels like a monster? Do you think Steve is a monster? Do you think he is innocent or guilty?
Do you think the jury sees Steve as a monster? If you were on the jury would you think Steve was a monster? Why? why not? Why did Steve title his book monster?

Everybody get teased about different kind of things. They curse to them and call them all types of names. They talk about how they look, act and all kind of different things. Mostly all the time people is making somebody cry and someone is fighting all because of the name calling. I know some boy who is always getting teased because he acts gay and everybody talks about him. I be feeling bad for people but then again I do the same just for the fun of it.

When Petrocelli called Steve a monster I think she meant it like he disregard the rights of others. I know she didn't mean that he really looks like a monster. When I name call i usually call them all types of things but I think Steve really liked the name Monster because he kept rewriting it. I don't think he is a monster because he would've did other bad things too but i don't really think that he is guilty and another person did that.

I don't think he is a monster because I think he is innocent and he is young. He titled his monster because he feels like a monster in jail and hes lonely and all around him is nothing but criminals.
