It occurred to me, on about the fifth time through “Inside Out” with the Cub, that there is a difference between Riley’s emotions and everyone else’s.
In the closing of the show, they show the groups of emotions for Riley’s Dad and Mom, her teacher, the boy she bumps into at hockey, and so on. And every one of them, the five emotions are the same gender as the person: Dad’s are all male, Mom’s are all females, the boy’s are all boys, etc.
But not Riley. Anger and Fear are guys, and Disgust Joy and Sadness are girls.
Why is that?
