School Orders Bullied Nine-Year-Old Boy To Leave My Little Pony Bag At Home

by | 15th, March 2014

“THEY’RE taking it a little too far, with punching me, pushing me down, calling me horrible names, stuff that really shouldn’t happen,” says nine-year-old Grayson Bruce, a North Carolina boy being picked on at school for carrying a My Little Pony Rainbow Dash bag.

 

Grayson is not alone

Grayson’s mother Noreen Bruce thinks we should celebrate the ponies:

“It’s promoting friendship, there’s no bad words, there’s no violence, it’s hard to find that, even in cartoons now. On Thursday the school asked him to leave the bag at home because they said it was a ‘trigger for bullying. Saying a lunchbox is a trigger for bullying, is like saying a short skirt is a trigger for rape. It’s flawed logic, it doesn’t make any sense.”

She ‘s not kidding about the flawed logic.
