Peppermint Patty

When I was watching “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” this year, I notice something I hadn’t noticed before, even though I’ve been watching it every year for my entire life.

Peppermint Patty.  She’s a tomboy, but she has a crush on Charlie Brown.  And  she addresses almost everyone as “sir” no matter what.  It’s probably just a coincidence that I would notice this now, but it’s nice to think that Charles Schultz had equality and inclusivity in mind to an extent when he created these characters.

I guess that’s the English major in me; trying to analyze everything and find meaning in it.
