Is Name Calling Ever Okay?


Reality TV show Married at First Sight has come under fire for allowing one of the participants to verbally abuse her onscreen “husband”. Ines was paired with Bronson and almost immediately started calling him horrendous names. Saying he looked “inbred” and was disgusted by him. On the most recent episode Bronson snapped and called Ines a name so offensive it needed to be bleeped out. LiveTribers, is this sort of behaviour ever okay? Is name calling justified if someone has been offensive to you? Should the show allow people to treat one another like this?

    The show is mostly fake. The couple in question pretended not to know each other, yet photos of them have surfaced from 2011, so clearly the show is like a pantomime. Dino and Bronson also know each orher because they both stripped together so is it ok? yea.. cos it's entertainment and not real and they were called up on the swearing.

    Calling names depends on situation! The above is bad, but TV show isn't worth of thinking. Some society groups can't live without it. It's only a slang. One story for those narrow minded: Once upon a time, beyond seven seas and seven mountains, used to be a tiny kingdom of happiness among huge empires of totality. It was in 1930. Elections were prepared. People considered those elections very serious decision about nation's future. Two comedians / clowns, enormously popular and a bit reddish, reflected on the elections calling each other an ox (ox has no balls and was considered rather stupid). It was a prank never really used in their performances. They only tried calling each other an ox in a sketch where they compared political partisans - there were parties and members called each other e.g. Sir, brother (Catholics), comrade (communists), kinsman (Nazi), etc. The clowns only wondered that there wasn't any political calling name left for them, so that used ox. Although this calling names appeared on the stage maybe just once, entire nation used it (youth particularly) till about 1990 (60 years!!!) in everyday conversation. Entire nation called each other oxen! Maybe they all they really were. This habit disappeared with generation change in 1990's. Maybe, because they really are now? I leave such problems to an ox, it's got bigger head to think about such a nonsense.

    I don't agree with name calling, but that horrible, horrible woman should have been told to cut her crap long before Bronson snapped. He seems like a genuinely nice guy. She did not like him from the start & is now happily "cheating" away. Abuse by either parties is not OK, & I actually feel sorry that he had to respond in that way

    I disagree in any forms of rude or insult names calling either to your loves one, workmates, friends or strangers alike. It does not promote positives reactions or positives mind set in anyone at all hence it creates unnecessary bad aggression to the victim.

    Some individuals adopt and seem happy enough to have pretty offensive sounding nicknames. If they think it is ok , what business of mine is it to declare it to be offensive. To say “ I can say it, but you can’t ” is also a pretty divisive insult. Whether or not something is an insult can often depend on the intent and context in which it is said.

    Ordinarily no naming calling is not alright but on MAFS Innes is a bully and Bronson put up with a lot of abuse from her till he cracked the producers should of stepped in when she abused him on the honeymoon if one of the male contestants would have done that to their partner would they have intervened. Just because he is a big guy doesn't mean he has to put up with abuse she is a narcissist that should never have got through the screening process to be someone's wife but obviously the show wanted drama and they got it at the expense of someone who was I think honestly looking for love.

    I think Bronson had every right to express his feelings about Ines. It wasn't like he was screaming "You're a *bleep*. He was asked how he felt. She constantly says horrible offensive stuff to him, she's like blowing into a balloon. Every nasty comment is like the air being breathed into the balloon until it can't take anymore air and explodes all over her. Her own fault! I don't blame him at all. There's only so much a person can take until they explode. Just like a balloon.

    In a perfect world, of course it's not ok .... in the real world it happens ....unfortunately I am ashamed to say I've done it, & have had dearly loved ones do it to me. We are human .... we all just need to try our utmost to do the best we can at any given moment, and if we, or others fall off the rails for a bit, then we need to forgive ourselves and others and get back up on the rails as soon as possible. As for Ines & Bronson, she's been off the rails from from the word go, and I would like to call her a nasty name, but I won't. As for Bronson ... he's got more patience than me, I'm afraid I would have fallen of the rails long before he did.

    It's entertainment. The show's editors wanted to include the incident. They certainly had the choice to delete that section and they chose not to do so. The people who go on those shows are doing it for money. They are not genuine. They prostitute themselves in the mistaken belief that they will be admired. Big mistake. If you watch those shows, then you are an enabler. Another big mistake.

    It differently is not this has been going on for generations & it has to stop now, we grow up hearing these things from our family media which has got worst its just not the black & white its everything whatever they call you which hurts they will use it over & over again. When I was growing we were taught that sticks & stones might break my bones that names will never hurt me ,to protect me but that has changed with cyber bullying texting movies games & allot of other things.So the earlier it is taught that is not acceptable hopefully it might be reduced I don't think it will stop fingers crossed it will get better.

    It is never OK to call people names. The problem with doing this as a joke or in a friendly way is that you never know how the recipient is feeling and what they are really thinking. The other problem is that people get away with "innocent" name-calling and then it escalates because they have never learnt it is offensive and hurtful

    It is never any good to call people names. You can unwittingly open an old wound, and set the person's emotional development back severely. Some really cruel name-calling happens in the primary school years, and when people get called those names later in life, it is really painful for them. However, It is important to remonstrate with the person who is provoking you, but with statements such as "I have just seen something about you that repels me'. That is better than calling the person a 'repulsive b----". Perhaps it is OK to observe about a particularly obnoxious person that there is a skunk in the pedigree, and it is not very far back.

    It's never right to call people names as it demeans them in the eyes of others and could lead to the person losing his self-image, his confidence, his ability to mix with his peers and a positive view on life. We won't know what daily pressures he has to bear just to make it through the day and therefore we should be helpful, kind and thoughtful.

    I believe it's a delicate situation. Name called within reason is alright but there are boundaries or limits that should be respected. If you upset or angry, show it and express it or no-one will know there is something bothering you. Try be calm and collected about the situation.

    The "Experts" on MAFS have paired people with Cluster B personality types with person's whom are relatively normal. The typical outcome is an explosion.

    I am seriously disappointed by much of the "sensational" production seen on TV, from cooking shows that seem to focus on toxic personalities to live coverage from Canberra. For many years we have been advised on the detrimental nature of some TV/Movies/video games etc on our children, yet popular media continues to see just how far they can push their sensationalised bull crap on the sheep. We have two young people living with us who have had a pretty rough trot to date, and much of the damage was caused by their unfettered access inappropriate TV and this can be seen clearly in many of their anti-social behaviours. So no, it's not OK and the sheep need to give their heads a shake and vote with the off button.

    It's NOT okay. But considering politicians, leaders of our nation, do it ALL THE TIME, and are even lauded for it, it just shows that people don't care. It is all part of the egocentric nature of modern Western society where "I can do what I want, so you do what I want". Media enables and society falls. (I am only in my 40s, not religious, apolitical... and yet I can see the world hoing to proverbial Hell in a handbasket.)

    I find that couple so offensive. Name calling is never okay it is degrading to both people and that episode made my flesh crawl. What a shocking message to young people.

    Nope on all three accounts. There are better ways of dealing with things like this that aren't degrading and offensive.

    No, being abusive is never ok. It seem to be happening more often in these reality shows. It turns me off watching them.

    Needless name-calling to suit one's ego is not OK. However, if it's warranted and, speaking from experience, it's just... Shame is earned, as is respect...

    No it is abuse normally, but in some cases sometimes if the other person is so rude and offensive, it is best to use words rather than fists. My mother used to say, Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me.

    Name calling has a place when it relates to is John Smith in the room but other than this form of name calling it makes everything else severe, nasty, bulling and extremely unwarranted so rememberfeelings have such a strong place in a happy envitonment

    Name calling is a definite no no its the most hurtful thing to do to someone because i know ive been thru it before and felt like comitting suicide i think that anyone that discriminates others or calls thm names should face a court charge so that they will not do that again name calling puts people in a place that i never wanna be in

    The whole show should betaken off air. Each season gets worse. The behavior is disgusting. I refuse to watch it.

    No it is never under any circumstance acceptable to call somebody else names . The show mfs bleeped out both their couples using offensive language for the very reason that it is unexceptable in society in general. If you have nothing nice to say dont say anything at all.

    No I do not believe denegrating another human is acceptable. When I was a lad "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" was a BS phrase to save actually preventing verbal bullying. Teachers were actually the worst bullies in the 50's & 60's of course that is now the last century. They condoned even encourage bullying. A school mate committed suicide because of being tormented by a teacher which was picked up by his classmates and led to his destruction.

    NO definitely not it can cause low self esteem to the person and how are you to know that those words maybe just enough to tip them over the edge.

    No, its never acceptable. People have lost respect in every way for some reason. I haven't seen the show you refer to however those reality shows are just that and and I'm sure contestants are told how to act an what to say just to keep viewers watching. Its wrong but it happens.

    Short answer is no why can't people speak and treat people as they want to be treated it's humane nature if some one is calling you names to retelate we need to stop and think about what were saying and how it affects everyone there

    Name calling, is rash and unacceptable behaviour in any medium. As it is acceptable is "sticks and stnes willbreak my bones, names will never hurt me. Seems acceptable. Names do injure take suicides from cyber bullying. Michael.

    As this show and others like it are highly scripted to enable the show to be "controversial" to try to increase ratings the fault lies with viewers who continue to watch this rubbish. The station owners, if they had any scruples, should take it off the air and throw it in the trash can where it belongs, it only encourages people to copy the bad example it's airing.
