Very true! That it was a young woman coded as adolescent doing it was the charming part. Even the "nicest" kids in junior high school knew all the rude gestures and I myself dropped the f-bomb when I was 11 or 12 in Little League after being whacked in the knee by a baseball bat (by the team manager!). Usually men and boys are the ones more at the ready to flip the bird, as Harold Lloyd did in the silents. I got the feeling the Peter Pan scene was contrived to let that happen, as I've never seen a thimble on someone's middle finger while sewing without there being one on the index finger as well.
