Default Boy bullied for "My little pony" bag. Thoughts?

Just wanted your thoughts on this. I don't see a problem with it either way. Freedom of Speech is just important as the second amendment

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." e. e. cummings

"I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death." Leonardo da Vinci

Brave kid. I hope he's not killed before he gets to grow up.

(I hope he's not killed after he grows up either.)

I know this will offend some here. But I believe men should be men and women should be women. Little boys should be taught to be little men. And little girls should be taught to be little ladies. Moms that let their little boys act like little girls are a big part of the problem. Absent fathers are an even bigger problem.

1. School needs to deal with the bullies
2. The Kid needs to (BE ALLOWED) to deal with the bullies if they don't.


A rock in a sock can square some folks away. BTW, the whole MLP thing has a number of healthy MALE followers.

This is next to "you need to stop bringing lunch money to school. That way you won't get mugged in the hallway for your lunch money."

While I can see the reasoning behind complying and practicing a "go along to get along" policy, this is strangely reminiscent of our gun problem. The BACKPACK (gun) is not the problem, the BULLYING (criminal behavior) is the problem. The school needs to get its students under control, and if not, then not punish (under Zero Tolerance Policy) the kid with the backpack if he does it himself.

A rock in a sock can square some folks away. BTW, the whole MLP thing has a number of healthy MALE followers.

This is next to "you need to stop bringing lunch money to school. That way you won't get mugged in the hallway for your lunch money."
Reminds me of my sister's father in law asking me why I own possessions that people can steal from me.

I'm one of the healthy male MLP fans. I do not sexually fantasize about the little girls that watch the show. I do not masturbate to the show. Yes, I'm being blunt about this because I hear the whispers and the rumors and the stereotypes.

My son also watches the show when he is able to (not owning a TV severely restricts TV time, believe it or not). He is anything BUT a little girl, no more so than I am. I've asked him why he likes it, and his answer was as simple as mine: It's entertaining. It has story lines and plot twists.

Have you SEEN the shows that are geared towards little boys these days? Most of them I simply wouldn't let my son watch, they have absolutely no value whatsoever other than loud noise and flashing lights. Ninjago is a pretty decent boy's show. My son watches it with my niece occasionally.

As far as this little boy carrying a MLP bag to school... hey, maybe that wasn't exactly the best idea if he wants to be "one of the guys". But how about, instead of drawing a hard line on, "this is how boys act, this is how girls act. This is what boys are allowed to like, this is what girls are allowed to like." Why can't we teach our children to not be ass holes to one another? Hmm? Or maybe you want your wife barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen, making sandwiches?

What about your daughter? Want her to be restricted in her dreams and aspirations because they aren't "Ladylike"? Whatever. I'm the son of a Woman Coal Miner who's a black belt in shotokan who I've seen beat the ever loving hell out of a man twice her size when he tried to push her around. I dated and was engaged to (for a while) a pretty bad ass female diesel mechanic. I'm a Marine combat veteran who has a knitting project: a rainbow scarf and sweater for my niece, and one of my life goals is to create the most bad ass rose gardens anyone's ever seen.

My son watches the show and wants to be a weapons or aircraft designer. At least, that's his dream at 8 years old. Considering he's built functional spring loaded lego guns (from legos, and firing legos) at the ripe old age of 6, I don't think that's such a far fetched dream. He goes ape over military museums, wears camo, and loves to help the neighbor butcher wild game, and can detail strip my 1911 as well as I can (after I remove the recoil spring plug, his fingers just aren't strong enough).

Again, I say... why teach our children to conform to the standards expected? Why not teach them to change the standard? Instead of teaching our kids that little boys don't carry a MLP backpack... let's teach them not to be a ****ing douche about it.

FAIL. On the part of the bully's parents. NOT the parent of the bullied.

For the record, my son carries a camo back pack. And he has pink pencils. For the very simple and logical reasoning, "so no one will steal them... except girls, and that's okay, I like girls."

Why be normal, as long as you can defend yourself?
