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.

Boojum2k: Daedalus27: If he continues this into middle school, he is in for a world of hurt.

Sadly for the bully-supporters, the media record as is will suffice for any legal action that may need to come up in the event of retaliation, and the school district is very aware of it. The concern trolls with their crocodile tears will find their sadistic fantasies unfulfilled once again.

We're witnessing the end of an era, the acceptance and encouragement of these twisted little sociopaths and their little sycophants is diminishing and coming to a close. It's becoming less and less acceptable in society, from early education on up through adulthood, to hate people for their harmless pieces of individuality. Even now, the only real place for those worshipping the myth of the bully as social police are finding that they can only speak out anonymously, hiding like the cowards they are on message boards and similar websites. And even there they are routinely called out and marked for their enabling behaviors.

alice_600: gadian: I can see both sides here.  The parents had to see that sending their kid with that backpack was going to get him bullied.  That's a given, no brainer.  That backpack = bullying.  However, the bullying needs to be punished.

It would've saved the kid lots of therapy had mom and dad simply said "let's leave this backpack at home to keep your things in and use another one for school".  However, in a perfect world, a kid would be free to use whatever backpack they want without asshats bullying them.

This isn't a perfect world.

I just realized this. Anyone notice there has been no statements from the dad?


He's coming.

Kid, I hate to dash your hopes, but a good job is a goddamn rarity. Don't shy away from the reality that you'll be working 'til twilight most nights, and even if you do find a place you can love and tolerate, it's never gonna be the next Apple. Jack in, turn on, tune out. Easy as pie.

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!


Camouflage. It's like hide-and-seek, but waaaaaay more intense.

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

Most kids make their own choices about what they're comfortable bringing to school, but part of being a kid is making mistakes. Mistakes like a 9-year old making a social faux pas are to be expected. Bullying is also wrong, but also in line with the sorts of mistake we expect grade school kids to make. The mistakes made by the school administrators... I was about to say that school administrators should know better than to be victim-blamers, and then I realized I was talking about school administrators here. I suppose that makes their mistakes also understandable, on account of the students - bullies and targets alike - are probably smarter than all the school administrators put together.

Good luck kids. Some of your colleagues are always going to be jerks, and this isn't going to change for the rest of your life, but you shouldn't let it get you down. It's the administrators - those who would prefer to eliminate the appearance of conflict rather than actually resolving the underlying issue - those are the people you've really gotta watch out for. (That's also not going to change for the rest of your life, and you shouldn't let that get you down either.)

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

/just like it was that girl's fault she got raped for wearing that short skirt

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?
