43. huh - fascinating!
I have never heard of this, unless it's the breathless valley girl thing....I have never done anything like that, I was always one of the girls with my hand up all the time in grade school, and the one pontificating in classes in high school and college and to men in various discussions.

That's pretty disturbing, I'll have to listen to see if I can figure out what you are talking about. It's odd that at a time when young women have more options for power and career than ever before, that there could be that lack of confidence and fear of being "strident."

You can bet Barbara Boxer, Hillary, etc. and Condi don't talk like that.
