After Grayson Bruce, 9, was bullied at school for bringing his lunch to school in a My Little Pony bag, school officials told Grayson to leave the bag at home because it was causing a distraction.

Yes. The kid was bullied for bringing a bag that displayed the fact that he's a fan of MLP, and the school's response was not to punish the bullies, but rather to tell the kid not to bring that bag to school on the grounds that it's a "distraction".
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

I'm pretty sure that's what teachers and administrators are told to do during whatever training they get to deal with discipline problems. "You're being bullied for being different? Stop being different! But always remember that you're one of God's special snowflakes!"

If you look at it logically, cannibalism has great potential to simultaneously solve our overpopulation and food shortage problems.

In other words, differences are okay, as long as you pretend to conform.

Amazing.  Just amazing.  It is totally telling a rape victim that what they were wearing triggered something inside their rapist into raping them.  When of course reality is...IT'S THE RAPIST'S FAULT 100%!

Why do schools never do anything to actually punish the bullies? my brother was bullied for years before my parents actually found out. Some kids just need the shit slapped out of them, and their parents too.

The victim should be mature enough to move on from MLP.   <turns fan on>
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

Eh, he's nine. We were all into kiddy shows at that age.

When he gets old enough to [not] shave and hang around with socially-inept bronies, it's time for some intervention.

My guess is shit like this happens because it's easier to make a small change to a single party than it is to deal with the actual situation.  Kid being bullied for a backpack?  Don't bother with the lengthy, difficult process of punishing the bullies and dealing with their parents and addressing harmful societal perceptions; just take away the backpack.  Problem solved.

Lazy pricks.  This is what happens when parents have too much sway over school politics.  It becomes all about coddling poor widdle Johnny Fuckup and less about making sure they have the tools they need to survive in the real fucking world.  Hate to be dog-eat-dog and a tad...Randroid about it, but if the little bastard fucks up and starts making life hell for other students, expel the little overdeveloped cumshot, and fuck what the parents think.

Why yes, I do in fact give zero fucks about the feelings of bullies.  Didn't want 'em hurt?  Shouldn't have decided to pick on other kids, you little shitskid.

I was bullied, and yet who got expelled from school? Me. Never the bullies, but me, for acting back. Grr.

I hope Mom & the kid make a noise.

This is what happens when Wingnuts run for School Administration & such. Time for the Progressive & sane to run & take over. Surely it would be easier than running for a big office like Governor, Senator or President.

Progressives need to run for office from the bottom-up! That's how the Tealiban Wingnuts took over!

We can fight this.

To Mom & kid, get the ACLU and keep bringing the MLP stuff to school!

Still not okay to let the bully's off.
