These are real people, telling their real stories. I think it could create a big change, and it could potentially save lives if kids are allowed to see it.Teen activist Katy Butler • Discussing her Change.org campaign to encourage the MPAA to change the rating of the documentary “Bully,” intended for teen audiences, from R to PG-13. Butler’s campaign has put her in a position where she’s talked to lawmakers, done interviews and even was invited to speak at a discussion about the film by the MPAA, where she said this about the R rating: “The kids can’t go to see the movie by themselves — and, honestly, how many 13-, 14-, 15-year-olds want to go to the movies with their parents? That’s just not cool.” Did the MPAA make the wrong move with the film’s rating?
