    I despise it also, when I notice it, that is. It seems most evident in girls that are early teens, and I try to avoid going places where young teens are likely to be present. The young teen boys have other annoying habits, too, and they will even do the giggle thing occasionally ( often for the same reasons, as Edahn ventured, but sometimes to express agreement ) as well. ( Like the Beevis and Butthead "Heh Heh" )

    The most annoying habit of kids is when little girls screech in extremely high pitched voices to show enjoyment and attract attention. It is a screech that is high enough to have been sampled from the shower scene of Psycho.

    The man who lives in the apartment downstairs from me has two daughters and the youngest does this every time she rides their little toboggan down to the base of the hill, which ends just below my window. Then she drags it back up to the top of the little hill and does it again. And again.

    It's not just a shout. It's got to be so high pitched as to be a screetch. And only a little girl can get her voice up that high, or a opera diva/coloratura perhaps. Perhaps that's what they are trying to say. "Why ? Because we can " Like the old joke about pets licking themselves.
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    Reichsfuhrer Herman Goering at the Nuremburg trials.

    I think its social conditioning. My thoughts are women are supposed to be respectful and even submissive to men so giggling at the end of a statement is a way to down play what is being said.

    I have a friend who does it with more senior (in age/job rank) women. At first I found it annoying, but not so much after I realized it's almost automatic when she's nervous.

    Do lesbians get a kick out of seeing gay guys make out?

    Is that a really inappropriate question?

    It gives me a bit of a kick if its nerves cause it bugs me no end so I dont respond in kind and therefore prolly make them even more uncomfortable

    I've seen it most prevalent in women who care too much what men think.

    I don't have the best gauge for appropriate. I find man on man action the only palatable method for seeing men in a sexual light. It's hot. Though, the biggest consumer of XY gay sex is heterosexual women.

    Sucks to be them.

    My mum does it though and she really couldn't give a fuck. (ESFJ)
    Guess it's just yet another of those social conventions that will forever be a mystery to me.
