Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriationGreat to see a disney show deals with this topic.
As soon as I saw this my jaw dropped and I rushed to find a gif set. I’ve become so jaded of people being appropriative or defending it (interestingly enough, people outside of a culture seem to think they can decide whether they are appropriative or not, despite having limited knowledge and no authority…just based on their own interests I guess). I noticed the appropriation right away but didn’t think they would address it. I’m so happy they did, it makes me respect the show more, and I already like it and think that’s it’s reminiscent of Disney shows c.2004. This isn’t quite on the level of That’s so Raven addressing racism and sizism but it’s close.
Edit: It was also surprising because the whole episode was about Topanga and Cory’s daughter not being herself for popularity, so I really didn’t expect them to call out the appropriation.

you know what i noticed?
sherlock is *less* rude to his father than he is to his mother.
when mummy displayed the slightest bit of affection for sherlock (in the form of a caress to the cheek) he immediately sought to remove himself from the interaction, as opposed to when his father displayed affection through his concern for Sherlock’s friends, sherlock simply acknowledges daddy’s sentiment without so much as a second thought.
this observation leads me to believe that sherlock may have spent more time around his father as opposed to his mother, alluding to how he ought to interact with the world given that his father seems to lack social skills as well.
just a thought
it could also lend to the fact that, when his mother was giving affection, it was to him, both times that we see her do it — the one time at 221B and the second time when she threatens to become “absolutely monstrous” towards whomever shot him. But when it’s Sherlock’s father, he’s giving concern to Sherlock’s friends, to John and to Mary, to people that he connects with and relates to. He cares about them, and so anyone who reflects that care towards them, he will accept the sentiment because he feels it too
[on expanding her career to become a film director] It is more satisfying. You are more of a participant in the conception. I like having control. I think I have the capability. I’m a storyteller and an artist and I love what I do. So I want to be part of it more and not just show up and say my lines.
