US: School reverses decision to ban 9-year-old boy from wearing My Little Pony bag

  • David Greensmith

    Good news that the school has finally seen sense. Let’s see the bullies held to account too.

      It’s amazing what happens when the national spotlight falls on your stupidity.

  • Serkan M

    Yaaaaay!! Common sense finally wins the day. I hope the boy can now have a happy school experience.

    Hello friends, My name is Joachim Schwarzer, an Austria national. I am a crude oil facilitator. I probably shouldn’t be doing this. But I am doing it purely out of desperation. I am gay, this is a page for gays and I am hoping to find someone who would be sympathetic towards a person of the same sexual orientation. I have a big oil deal that I have been putting together in Nigeria for the best part of One year. But my Nigerian partners recently found out about my orientation (I don’t know how), and now they want me out of the deal which I have spent a lot of time and money on. What I need now is someone who would act as a facilitator in this deal in my stead as they will no longer deal with me. I am offering a quarter of what comes to me to anyone who could be of help. Contact me by email at for more details please. Thank you.

    Force the bullies to carry their books to school in My Little Pony bags.

    • Jones

      Implying that having a My Little Pony bag is humiliating. Well obviously not for this boy as he’s chosen to carry it around and it was his decision after all. The bullies needn’t be humiliated but they should be punished.

  • Brett Gibson

    Bloody good, this school seriously needs to take a good hard look at themselves and how they choose to handle situations. Good for the young lad though, bless his heart.

  • Dermot Mac Flannchaidh

    When I was his age, in the 1980s, I openly liked My Little Pony too. Was I bullied? Certainly. But it was my still my right to like MLP. My parents were supportive, and I never thought it was weird of me.

  • Truth

    Excellent news. I never understood why the school could not see that they were in effect putting the rights of bullies above this boy’s right to be himself.
