Molly Quinn (from Castle) Makes me smile....
« on: September 26, 2011, 08:32:32 PM »
A few hours ago Miss Quinn (who I have loved as an actress for ages, but even more so since she's been in Castle) posted a tweet that made me grin -

@CastleTV: @MollyQuinn93 Seamus has all the goss on the con (a convention for Castle fans) :P
Molly's reply: Being from the South I do not want to assume anything about being invited.

Just lovely.
... it might frighten them.

I understand what Molly is saying, but I have no idea what @CastleTV is saying...can you please provide a translation?

Seamus is Seamus Dever (detective Ryan) and he's been tweeting info about a convention being held later in the year for Castle fans.

I actually think its a quite polarizing comment. "Being from the South..." Seriously?!?!?!  What are all us nasty Yankee northerners tactless clods?  I've been to the South and the people there are no more polite (or rude) or better versed in etiquette then from anywhere else.  Couldn't she have just said "I do not want to assume anything about being invited" without a nasty little implication about somehow being more polite because she's southern?

Is she the daughter? I love her. She's charming.
Just because you're disappointed in me doesn't mean I did anything wrong.

I doubt she was saying "I'm from the South and therefore entirely etiquettely superior to those rude Yanks!" I'd guess she was just playing with the "polite Southern belle" stereotype. I can see how it could be taken that way, but why assume the worst?

And FTR, I'm a Northerner. ;)

POD. I think it's an innocuous comment and it did not even occur to me to think that she was trying to imply that northerners were rude. I think sometimes offense is taken too easily where none is intended.

Just because someone says something is one way, doesn't mean everything else is the opposite. I think perhaps one of the reasons people think south = super polite is simply because etiquette and words like "sir" or "ma'am" are drilled into children from an early age. In the North, where I grew up, people take a more subdued, common sense approach. In my opinions, it seems to average out so people from both areas are roughly equally polite, it's just some people are more formal about it.

A little OT but when I was in America I found New Englanders to be the most polite, which really taught me not to put too much faith in stereotypes (also, IME, Americans cannot be beaten for hospitality.)
