School pivots, will allow boy’s 'My Little Pony' backpack

The 9-year-old boy who was told last week that he couldn’t bring his My Little Pony backpack to Candler Elementary School in Buncombe County, N.C. will get to attend school with his trusty bag in tow after all. The boy’s mother, Noreen Bruce, met with school district officials on Thursday to hash out their disagreements, reports The Asheville Citizen-Times. The dismayed mother had pulled her fifth-grade son, Grayson, out of school last week after school officials allegedly asserted that the My Little Pony bag and various other My Little Pony trappings had become a “trigger for bullying” and were too distracting to other students. According to both the elder Bruce and her son, other kids had been picking on the boy with flurries of insults and physical assaults because he is a boy and the Hasbro-generated franchise on which the backpack is based is geared toward girls.
