Noticeably F.A.T.: Crotchrocket Slim: I really don't understand people so sociopathic to blame the victim, especially when the victim is a young kid.

There's a difference between blaming the victim and saying that if you know Y will likely happen if you do X, it may not be a horrible idea to not do X if you don't like Y, regardless of Y being fair or deserved.

Delawheredad: I was an incredibly dorky kid. I was ragged on and bullied for all twelve years of my schooling experience. When i received my diploma my class mates booed me! Some of the razing I deserved most of it  was  simply picking on the brainy odd kid. Even though school was hell to the point where i seriously considered suicide I made it a point to try and not be a victim as much as i could. My life was hellish enough to not add to it by wearing the "wrong" clothes or having the  "wrong" accessories. Conformity is an EXCELLENT defense plan! Camouflage WORKS!

  These parents are just making life harder for their kid in the  future. It IS that simple!


Sounds like you never picked up any social skills if people were that terrible to you all the way through high school on top of the dumb things you didn't deserve to be picked on for.

Crotchrocket Slim: So... kids can think ahead of time like adults can?


Adults are involved here, and it sounds like that, however misguided their attempts are, they are at least trying to make sure the kid isn't getting hurt.

Crotchrocket Slim: Notice how a lot of posters in this thread want to alter the bronie's actions and not the bullies'


If that's actually what they are saying, that's wrong. However, I've seen a lot of comments (not only in this thread, but in general) that actually don't say the victim should change what they are doing, just that until the problem is resolved and they can continue unharassed, temporarily changing wouldn't be the worst thing they could do.

If I had to walk down a street every day, and every day some asshat punched me in the head for wearing hat I don't like, either not wearing the hat or not walking the street until the cops arrest the asshat is going to save me several literal and physical headaches. Is it right that that's what it takes, even as a temporary solution? Not in the slightest. However, recognizing that the world we live in doesn't care even a little bit about our concepts of fairness can go a long way toward making your life a little easier. Baby steps, is what I'm saying.

MadMattressMack: Crotchrocket Slim: MadMattressMack: 
I think a comment I made to someone else might come into play here:

Crotchrocket Slim: most kids do know there is a line in the sand for ragging on a kid for having a dorky backpack vs sending the kid to the hospital.

Sending a kid to the hospital isn't normal kids teasing kids which a lot of the utterly psycho people in this thread are arguing. This is bullying that is pretty much beyond the usual pale here. This is farked up sheet that no one deserves.

Let me reread the article. Nope. He wasn't in the hospital. He was banned from school. And I said the school was wrong. Maybe you're confusing threads? I'm talking about the actions of the school that banned him from wearing a back pack, not defending the actions of idiots who beat up people. I would never do that nor would I accept that as a solution to almost any situation. Just as I don't accept bullying. But not liking it and it being wrong doesn't mean it won't happen.

Also, beating a kid up to the point of hospitalization isn't bullying by any means. That's assault.


I might be confusing stories, this foolishness has gotten out of control. Or the media sucks at reporting it. Probably both.

Very good overall, though some of the episodes have been a bit flatter than others.  BUT, their have been some absolute gems too - like the Weird Al episode.  :D



FirstNationalBastard: First half was great, ending with a Weird Al appearance. Second half slowed down a bit, included possibly the worst episode of the series, but has rebounded for the final episodes.

I'm not a big fan of MLP, I'm more of a Bob's Burgers kinda guy... but wtf. If you can't even see someone with a MLP backpack/lunchbox/whatever without feeling compelled to hurt them or bully them, you need serious mental help. If your kids are at a point where they do shiat like that and harass the weak, you're failing as a parent, and you need to fricking talk to your kids now. In the real world, outside of school, you punch someone because you don't like their backpack, or you see a dude wearing a skirt, you're gonna go to farking jail. If you don't teach your kids that now, then they end up in jail. Aside from that, while this shiat makes the 9-11 year olds feel bad, by the time you get to high school, there's a very valuable lesson to teach your kids "Never fight a poof, they've been fighting their whole life, and you haven't."

As for the dickbags saying conformity is great and camouflage works, you farkers are the reason organizations like thetrevorproject.org are necessary. Teaching kids to lie, cover up, and be ashamed of who they are is profoundly farked up parenting. You have one farking important job, and that's to tell them that you love them no matter what they are, be they bronies, gay kids, nerds, or whatever. The second you convince them that the best course of action for them is to hide shiat, you're teaching them to hide it from you, and you've pretty much just given up on anything like parenting.

Yeah, the TVTrope entry on the series. It was so misanthropic that it inspired a number of people to write an almost thirty chapter reboot of it where humanity realizes what's going on and shows why humans are bastards.

  i grew up in rural Pennsylvania. it was a hick town with virtually no minorities and virtually EVER white citizen was a racist redneck. I was teased in part because my grandmother who lived in the  same town)and Father h had thick Brooklyn accents. This town was so screwed up that when some local POISONED A BLIND TEACHER'S GUIDE DOG the rednecks thought it was utterly hilarious! We only lived there because of my father's job as soon as we graduated my entire family fled the town. NO ONE from my family lives there today. We were smart people in a land of morons and the brought out a LOT of resentment amongst the locals. I was mocked for, among other thing, READING BOOKS IN STUDY HALL! There is a reason that PA outside of Philly and Pittsburgh is know as as Pensyltucky!

He's not technically a brony per se; he read TFA and had a segment about it on his show, basically coming to the same conclusion: if the kid wants to wear the backpack, what right does the school have to tell you that you must be the same as everyone else?

I got bullied for wearing uncool pants. Should the school have required me to shop exclusively at Abercrombie&Fitch? Should I have been suspended until I bought some $1,000.00 Nikes?

Oh, it's you.

Why is it that every post you make re-enforces the idea that you are a terrible human being? I mean, really. You're blaming a 9 year old child for not going along with the status quo, and then celebrating the fact that he's outright being punished because of the asinine actions of a bully and the shiatty parents and school system who think it'll "build his character".

 And given the way you talk, I'm less inclined to think you were the bully you like to portray yourself as, and more the passive-aggressive, whiny little pussy who found avoiding conflict and deflection/projection was a much more comfortable way to deal with life.

Delawheredad: Are there ANY sensible parents these days? yes bullying is a scourge we should battle. At the same time part of parental responsibility is teaching your kid how NOT to become a victim. Would I have let my kid wear that back pack to school? Not on your life! It is the SAME  as sending the kid to school with a  "KICK ME!" sign taped to his back! it may not be right but it IS a fact! The world sucks and is full of a holes, learning how to recognize and avoid them is something ALL parents should instill in their kids at the earliest possible age.


Bingo!  Someone actually gets it.

I have three kids, and I realize part of my responsibility as a parent is to try to help my kids NOT be targets.

While we all know that the show is there to sell toys, normally the writers can overcome that and make a decent show out of things.

But It's Not Easy Being Breezies was the first episode of the series where the only thing missing was a crawl across the bottom of the screen saying "Breezie toys and plushes available soon at a toy store near you. BUY ONE TODAY!"

Crotchrocket Slim: Dragonflew: Crotchrocket Slim: Dragonflew: Crotchrocket Slim: I still don't see how having this backpack makes him a target

Have you even met any children before? The majority of them are farking assholes. You would seriously be surprised if this kid was NOT a target?

I've met a lot of asshole kids with asshole parents and lots of sweetheart kids with decent parents. shiatty parents being unavoidable doesn't mean shiatty parenting is acceptable.

No, shiatty parenting is not acceptable, I never argued that. But it exists. And nasty, evil children exist.

Again, do you really believe that this kid will not be a target if he wears a MLP backpack to school?

Kids find stupid reasons to target other kids no matter how many of the previous stupid reasons you eliminate, therefore not addressing the bullying itself but beating the individuality out of kids is not the answer. That's my point.


Do you have kids? I'm going to take a wild guess and say no.  Yes, it is ultimately the fault of the bully, but this kids parents are doing him no favors by letting him wear that stupid farking backpack.

Lapdance: Now we have a generation or two raised as precious little snowflakes and they're carrying right along. Maybe it'll die out one day. Just doesn't seem like a good Survival Trait to pass along. Just because you cry about other people or kids "Bullying" doesn't make it magically go away. When you're older you get to think more logically, kids don't and proper parents should help foster that. "You know Jimmy, if you wear that MLP backpack, you might get Teased a little!" (Christ someone's gonna kick his ass!) "But No, Mom, I wanna wear it!" "OK, Sweetie, whatever you want!" What else can I say


Some people lack basic Parenting 101 skills:

1) Teach your kids right from wrong (this means what's okay/nice to say and what's wrong/bad to say)
2) Teach your kids proper manners (this means you have to teach them the consequences of not doing the right thing/what they are told to do) The consequences don't have to be violent in anyway.
3) Lastly, there are basic things to do if you think your kid is being bullied: Talk to the other parent and (if necessary) talk to the school. When I was kid and I had a problem with another kid, the school didn't get involved because our mothers talked and told us what how the problem was going to be solved!

Exactly.  If this kid gets beat up,  it's completely his fault for wearing that backpack.

No, the crime is always the fault of the perpetrator.  That doesn't mean it isn't a stupid idea.  If I go to a predominantly black neighborhood wearing a racist t-shirt and I get my ass kicked, it's still assault but wouldn't you call me a farking idiot for doing that?


You do understand that you would be the bully in this scenario, right?

Just like if only you hadn't let your daughter go out wearing a skirt, she'd have never been raped.So really, you helped her tease her attacker.

It isn't.  That's not the point.  The point is that even though bullying is wrong and shouldn't exist, in the real world it DOES.  Kids can be absolutely godawful and that's just a reality of life.  It's just a risk mitigation situation.


Bullies will  always find a reason to bully. There is no mitigation strategy.

I'm blaming him and more so his parents. What good has him rocking the boat got him? Not much.

How is having a kids' show backpack at all comparable to inciting racial strife? This is a retarded stretch even for Fark, and I've made more than my fair share of retarded stretches of logic on Fark.

It isn't.  That's not the point.  The point is that even though bullying is wrong and shouldn't exist, in the real world it DOES.  Kids can be absolutely godawful and that's just a reality of life.  It's just a risk mitigation situation.

Bullies will  always find a reason to bully. There is no mitigation strategy.

Strike that: the real mitigation strategy is to expel the farking bullies.


Punish the parents and the kids will straighten out quickly.

TV's Vinnie: hardinparamedic: Allen262: Peace through Ponies!

Go read some of the conversion bureau stories. The celebration of genocide and general misanthropy of the authors towards humanity in general is enough to make you want to drink. Ignore the fact they would be happy to sacrifice their individuality in real life - not just a fan fiction but an actual fantasy insert/projection work.

There's a reason Chattoyance is one of the most hated members in the Brony fandom.

No. The Most Hated Brony is the ORIGINAL Brony, known as Christian Weston Chandler.

Rhino_man: I need to actually knuckle-down and watch the show one of these days.

//My kid is 2
///She farking loves the show


I have some episode suggestions, if you're genuinely interested.

/Seven cousins under the age of 5 at current
//I was babysitting so much when I was younger
///Grew up with Gen 1 right alongside my sister, and yes, it's an awesome show.

Look you cretins we are NOT blaming the victim! No it is NOT a woman's fault for being raped but IF SHE CAN AVOID IT she SHOULD NOT park her car in some unlit section of the parking lot miles away from the mall. She is just taking sensible precautions by parking nearer to the  mall and in a well lit area. Carrying pepper spray and/or a weapon would also be good ideas. Are all men rapists? Not at all. Do rapists like to lurk in dark parking lots? ABSOLUTELY!

  Should the kid have the RIGHT to wear any back pack he wants? ABSOLUTELY!

Does that mean his choices are FREE of consequence? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

We tell our kids to not play with fire we also need to teach them how NOT to feed the trolls and A holes of the world!

Expel the bullies? That's a little extreme

Sim Tree: what right does the school have to tell you that you must be the same as everyone else?


The proud nail gets hammered down....

Or pushed into the sticker bushes.

Grayson Bruce?  WTF were the parents thinking?  How could they name their boy thus and think there was an ever-loving hope in hell he wouldn't get bullied?  They should just embroider "Kick Me" on the backs of all of his shirts.

Robin and Batman, Dick Grayson and Bruce Wayne.  Not a bad name, but you shouldn't put Robin first ever.

No, the crime is always the fault of the perpetrator.  That doesn't mean it isn't a stupid idea.  If I go to a predominantly black neighborhood wearing a racist t-shirt and I get my ass kicked, it's still assault but wouldn't you call me a farking idiot for doing that?

You do understand that you would be the bully in this scenario, right?


Hmm.. Fair point.
