Unfortunately, in 2014, there are still places where a 9-year-old boy can’t wear a My Little Pony backpack to school without getting bullied. Even more unfortunate, however, is the fact that Grayson Bruce’s North Carolina school has essentially blamed him for the bullying, asking him to leave his Rainbow Dash bag at home rather than punishing the kids who punched, shoved, and called him names. “Saying a lunchbox is a trigger for bullying is like saying a short skirt is a trigger for rape,” said Grayson’s mom, Noreen. Grayson, however, seems to be taking the injustice in stride, standing by his favorite classic television show and developing a following on Facebook through a support page a friend made for him. He is, however, carrying his lunch in a different bag these days.
