Cry-Baby of the Week
It’s time, once again, to marvel at some idiots who don’t know how to handle the world:
Cry-baby #1: Anderson County Senior-Junior School
KCTV via Raw Story
The incident: A boy wore a purse to school.
The appropriate response: Nothing.
The actual response: The school suspended him. 
Last Wednesday, 13-year-old Skylar Davis wore a multicolored Vera Bradley purse to his school in Garnett, Kansas.
After a complaint from a teacher, he was called to the office of the assistant principal, who told him he was not allowed to wear it. 
Skylar refused to take the purse off as, he said, girls at his school are all allowed to wear them. “I don’t think everyone should be treated differently,” he said. “Everyone should have the same privileges.”
Since he refused to take it off, he was suspended. His mother, Leslie, was called and told she would have to come pick him up. “I was a little furious and I called the school to reverify the story,” she told KCTV, “and yeah, he refused to take off his Vera Bradley bag, nothing more to it.”
Also speaking to KCTV, Skylar said that he’d been wearing the purse daily since August and it had never had any issues with it. 
Leslie said that she checked the school’s official handbook, and there were no rules about purses listed. 
The initial suspension was only for a day, but Skylar has said he won’t return to school until the issue is resolved, “It expresses myself, and I think everyone else can wear it, so I wear it as well,” he said.
