An 11-year-old boy is in the hospital after trying to commit suicidethe victim of bullying at school.
Its not a new problem in North Carolina, but this puts a new face on the age-old problem as Michael Morones remains in WakeMed with a tube down his throat and potentially life-long brain damage.
Michael tried to kill himself, apparently because he could no longer take the torrent of bullying he was facing at school.
Hes the kid that never walks. He dances everywhere, said Michaels mother, Tiffany Morones-Suttle. Hes so full of energy. Hes always on the move.

or, because he was being sexually abused
Because he likes My Little Pony?
The comic book and star trek nerds who were beat up in school and teased in gym class never made headlines.
Neither did the computer nerds who were victimized by their peers.
Nor the fat kids.
Just those who may be light in their loafers.
I loathe the pink pravda media.
The Evil Pink Pony put him under a spell.
Maybe some pilots could visit his school or at least contact the kid and give him a patch...
“The class patch for a new batch of Air Force pilots plays on the show ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’”
My little Pony is the fig leaf
That didn't occur to me.Yes,That's a plausible explanation.And so is that he has "new age" parents who were so looking forward to him becoming "transgendered" at 13.You know,kinda like "Cher".
No matter how he reacts to the bullying he’ll be suspended.
I have a kid in my Troop that’s a big fan. Brightest kid, by a country mile, in my Troop.
His Dad is a former Army Ranger. My committee chair and I just set the kid up with a laptop crammed full of the very latest development tools available from Microsoft. We also have him set up for Cisco Engineer certification.
The goal? He gets his GED and coins at being an IT guy. Having a very rough time in middle school right now, and he’s one of the best kids I know.
Sounds more like he has severe behavior control issues. The My Little Pony fixation is just a distraction.
People are shocked when the unnatural are treated as such.
I know the middle school years are tough, and peer pressure is overwhelming, but if you’re going to profess your love for My Little Pony and dance everywhere you go, you’d better have a thick skin. You have every right to do those things, just as other people have the right to point out that’s not the norm.
Wait....are you saying the kid SHOULD have been bullied?
There is a group of young men, teens even, who like this show.
It’s very odd.
Probably an assumption on my part; but I seriously doubt the poor kid has a father at home.
Fatherless homes have ruined America.
“Should”? No. That it was inevitable? Yes, absolutely.
I watched the first season on Youtube. It was old school morality stuff mixed with entertainment. Like cartoons used to be. No agenda in it. The Pink parade adopted it since one of the characters is a tomboy with a rainbow mane.
Never showed any overt or even subliminal homo BS. and I looked.
Dunno about the later episodes. But there ya go.
