So instead of punishing the bullies, the school made the choice to punish the victim of the bullying. Victim-blaming a nine-year-old; a new low. According to Facebook, a lot of adults think what the school did is just fine.

I hate blaming parents for everything, but these little bullies have to learn their behaviors from someone. I forget how many adults haven’t fully evolved. It’s a depressing thing to think about, but Facebook is always here to remind us just how awful adults can be.

The story is trending this week, so of course many adults are weighing in. Some of these comments are truly baffling. I can’t imagine being raised in an environment that is so blinded by gender stereotypes. I can’t imagine having a parent who would say mean things about a child in a public forum. Reading the following comments, I actually felt really bad for children who are learning from these adults. It’s just depressing.

1. “The pussification of men!”

2. Kids should be independent thinkers, but not really.

Good job, adults. Yeah, let’s not teach our children it’s good to be independent thinkers and that bullying is not okay. Let’s teach them to hide their interests so they don’t have to worry about getting beat up – or better yet – teach them to solve their problems with violence.

Can we evolve, please?
