If you were getting bullied at school because of something you wore or carried on your person, would you stop wearing or bring that item to school in hopes of stopping the bullying?
or would you fight for your right to wear or carry that item and endure more of the bullying?
A boy who brought his beloved My Pony lunch box to school got bruised and abused by fellow classmates over his choice of a “girly” lunch box. A twist to the story is that the school intervened and told the boy to leave the lunch box at home.
Now the boy and his mom are voicing their displeasure over the schools decision. The boy’s mom said “Saying a lunchbox is a trigger for bullying is like saying a short skirt is a trigger for rape,” she said. “It’s flawed logic; it doesn’t make any sense.”
Should this boy have a right to bring his choice of lunch boxes to school? Did the school do the right thing by forbidding this boy to bring his choice of lunch boxes?
