Elementary School Says Little Girl’s Wonder Woman Lunchbox Is ‘Too Violent’ For The Classroom, Bans Superhero Images From School:

“A little girl was sent home with a note outlining the reasons why her ‘violent’ Wonder Woman lunchbox would not be allowed back into the classroom. The elementary school noted that the Wonder Woman lunchbox was a violation of the school handbook due to the fact the female superhero was considered a ‘violent character’ not because of any violence present on the lunchbox itself. That is right folks, an elementary school has deemed the entire Justice League, the Avengers and any other do-gooder superhero that may use force to overcome villains as ‘violent characters’ and unacceptable for display in the school setting. The school was sure to point out that the image should not appear on the child’s socks either.”

  1. I saw this a few days ago and I did a headdesk. I thought we were way past this wholly unproven nonsense that violent characters cause violence in children?

    Yes, violence breeds violence; only a fool would deny that. But the fact is it has to be actual violence. Not bloody comic book characters and not war toys.

    If the school wants to keep violence away from kids, how do they intend to teach them history? Can’t be done.

    When I was growing up as a little boy, my favourite toy was Action Man (GI Joe in the USA). I had so much stuff associated with it that everyone thought I would end up in the military. I ended up being a pacifist, anti-militarist, and – not to mince words – a big girlie whoopsie. I am living proof that violent toys and role models does not make a child violent nor lead to violence in later life.

    As for images not appearing on socks, that is but a step away from the school checking the kids’ underwear, and I do hope that is not lost on the parents, as doing so would constitute sexual assault upon minors.
