When children don't conform to stereotypical gender assumptions, is it ever appropriate to punish them? This month, 9-year-old Grayson Bruce of North Carolina was told to leave his My Little Pony backpack at home because it was a “trigger for bullying.” To which his mother said: “Saying a lunchbox is a trigger for bullying is like saying a short skirt is a trigger for rape. It's flawed logic.” And last month, 8-year-old Sunnie Kahle in Virginia was told to stop dressing like a boy or she would not be able stay at her Christian school.

Re "A Call for Grown-Ups," editorial, May 10: The cellphone incident involving a 17-year-old high school student in Columbus, Ga., talking to his mother who is serving in Iraq was handled poorly. I am a veteran and know firsthand what it is like to be stationed halfway around the world. Just a word of encouragement from home is salvation for a weary soul. School administrators in this case do not have a clue about being understanding. They need to be retrained in human relations.
