Fourth-grader Grayson Bruce has been the victim of bullying at Buncombe County Schools because of his My Little Pony lunch bag. The school’s immediate solution? Ask Grayson to leave the bag at home.
9-year-old Grayson and his mother, Noreen Bruce, are disappointed by the NC school’s decision. Ms. Bruce points out that “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.”
