Grayson Bruce - a nine-year-old fan of My Little Pony as well as a student in Buncombe County Schools in Fayetteville, North Carolina – has been bullied for taking a My Little Pony lunchbox to school. His lunchbox is quite colorful and his classmates thought it was only for girls. Thereby, the bullying has occurred, according to a Yahoo! News report on Tuesday.

On one occasion, when he showed up with his lunchbox – which is actually in the form of a bag, the Rainbow Dash bag from the My Little Pony product line – he was punched, pushed down, and called horrible names, according to the boy's account.

Instead of addressing the students who have bullied Grayson, the adults at his school decided to address Grayson by telling him to leave the lunchbox at home. He was told to leave his lunch box at home because it was a "trigger for bullying."

The mother of the bullied boy, Noreen, disagrees wholeheartedly. She said that 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.”

The school district said that an initial step was taken to immediately address a situation that had created a disruption in the classroom. The district stated, “Buncombe County Schools takes bullying very seriously, and we will continue to take steps to resolve this issue.”

As for public support, some 18,000 have “liked” a Face Book showing support for Grayson Bruce.

However, the boy is still not allowed to take his My Little Pony lunchbox to school.
