hi all,

A child’s school has banned her lunchbox, because it features the comic book character Wonder Woman.

The school sent the unnamed girl home with a letter for her parents, explaining why they deem it inappropriate – which a family friend and Reddit user has posted online for the world to weigh in on.

Lunch boxes CAN poison the development of children...but it's usually the contents inside that cause offence.. What an odd and baffling world we live in.

Next they will ban George Washington and Abraham Lincoln because they used violence to solve problems.

Ultra left wing, liberal, progressive "educators" are poisoning the minds of children in my country.
Worse than any comic book character ever did.

What I don't understand is how that school teaches history if they don't want the kids exposed to "people who solve problems with violence"?

What a screwed up policy....

The same way that Ultra right-wing, conservative 'educators' are poisoning the minds of children?

This isn't a conservative or liberal issue, it's a stupidity issue. And stupidity is on both sides of the political spectrum.

Yup, public schools in the United States are just loaded with Conservative right wing educators.
Please sight one example of a conservative right wing educator in a public school doing or saying something this dumb.

American flags are banned in some public schools these days because they might offend immigrants both legal and illegal.
ROTC posts are asked to leave college campuses.
History books are being rewritten to explain away the Civil War

How did this issue turn into a rant against American education, ROTC, flags and immigrants? WTF. This is a story about a school in the UK with some funny ideas.

How about we leave the radical politics at the door, folks.

My school was the same way when I was a kid, but in that case it was the Ninja Turtles. Wasn't allowed to wear or bring anything involving them and even got scolded for talking about them, because they hit people and that was the ultimate sin.

I tried in vain to explain they were good guys and only beat up the bad guys, but anyone who hit anyone was a bad guy to them.

Perhaps the most important lesson in this story is that you just never know what someone is going to consider offensive. Sometimes the most innocent of things can get peoples backs up.

Here in Australia Superhero themed clothing and items,like toys, are banned in many schools for the supposed promoting of violence. I guess they'd have to include Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, and have a serious look at preventing reruns of Gilligans Island. And make sure your kid doesn't take a Three Stooges lunch box...that must surely be an instant expulsion. :D

WOWEE...If these PC non violent types ever laid eyes on my favorite cartoon as a kid in the 60's, they would have a freakin nervous meltdown!!
GoGo Gophers watch em GoGoGo! Btw, I always loved how the GoGo Gophers had their tepee set up as a workshop and laboratory. They were a true inspiration to guerilla fighters everywhere!

This is exactly the kind of bullshit I wish I would never read on forums such as this.

I truly apologize if some members think I am ranting.
It takes several levels of stupidity for a school to come up with a policy like this.
The principal, school psychologist, school board and superintendent are all well meaning people I am sure and this is what they are worried about?
What ever happened to schools teaching children reading, writing, math, science and HISTORY which is full of men and women being violent.

I'm glad my 1st grader doesn't go to that school. He currently has a Star Wars lunchbox (with Darth Vader and some Stormtroopers no less) and a Ninja Turles back pack.

He would probably get a double suspension at that school!
