The predecessor to the original poster (OP) no longer exists due to “personal reasons”.
“It has been difficult raising my son as a single father, but I am doing my best,” the OP said.
The Redditor’s sister, 48, lives nearby. The couple was growing up closely, but he says she did not approve of him raising his son alone. The OP’s son and niece, 11, both attend the same school.
His son has a couple of toys as well as T-shirts and stickers from my little pony Displays. Recently, the operations office received communications from the school that his niece and her friends are bullying his son and his friends.
The OP continued: “He likes to bring a toy pony with him to school to keep in his bag because it makes him happy. Son came home crying from school that his niece broke the toy and threw it in the trash. I was angry and schedule a meeting with the school and my sister. My sister thinks they are wandering And they’re having fun.”
Leaving the meeting where counseling was suggested, which the OP’s sister thought was a “ridiculous” idea, his sister pulled him aside and said that perhaps his son should watch something “more boy-friendly”. She added that if he had a “mother figure” there would be no problems.

“number [not the a**hole]”What your son enjoys is none of his grandparents’ business if he doesn’t hurt anyone,” the Redditor said. “Your family doesn’t seem to like people who break traditional gender roles.”
Redditor believes that “games are games” and that they are not “specific to sex.” However, they added, “Toys are stereotypedly marketed for gender specificity, but this is only to increase sales. Toys cannot be gender specific because you cannot tell what kind of toys children will want to play with.”

Another thinks the OP is not wrong, which suggests that they keep the children’s school involved. “Looks like you’re going to need them to support you,” the Redditor said. “I would personally lose my mind if any of my relatives did this to my kids. As for him, he loves MLP, it’s a great show for anyone because it teaches great lessons about friendship, respect, etc.”
While the Redditor believes the OP’s sister “justifies bullying,” adding, “She’s really no better than her kid, and I see where your niece learns about girl’s mean behavior.”
