The General Theory of Love tells of a monkey that underwent a limbic lobotomy, and so lost access to the part of his brain that governs social interactions. He “stepped on his outraged peers as if treading on a log or rock, and took their food with the nonchalance of one oblivious to their existence”.

Many schools lack a non-blaming mirroring of the actual language that students use with one another. Anti-gay language, racial slurs, derogatory and hurtful comments about intelligence and size pervade student social discourse, often without educational intervention from the adults on campus. Students’ prevalent complaint is that “no one responds” to the language they endure. When adults respond, it is often with punishing consequences and little or no chance to change behavior or role.
