A 13-year-old Kansan boy was suspended yesterday for wearing a Vera Bradley purse — and school officials say he can’t come back until he takes it off. Please note: this is real life.
The boy, Skylar Davis, awesomely and bravely refused to take the purse off, and so the school called his mom. Because that's a much better use of everyone's time than, you know, ACTUAL EDUCATION.
"I was a little furious, and I called the school to reverify the story, and yeah, he refused to take off his Vera Bradley bag, nothing more to do it,” said Davis' mom Leslie Willis “Skylar has been going to school since August with that same Vera Bradley bag on, hasn’t taken it off. What is the problem?”
Yes, what exactly is the problem? Because if he's not carrying around dead body parts in that purse, these assholes need to leave him the hell alone. Also, it should be noted that Davis' is successfully rocking a Vera Bradley purse and that is NO EASY FEAT. Kudos, my friend.
Although Davis' initial suspension was for one day, he now says he won't return to school until they treat him fairly. “It expresses myself and I think everyone else can wear it, so I wear it as well,” Davis said. Damn straight: rock that floral-themed dream!
