Abstract

“Getting Tested for Monsterdom: and ” advances our understanding of what it means to be a monster. We might conceive of monsters as beings that look grotesque and/or that act maliciously with intent. However, there is a vast gray area as to why one should or should not be labeled a monster. This article will discuss the unjust physical expectations leveled toward “monsters” and give a new line of application to the nature vs. nurture theory.
