I Feel Like

Education, 1995

A “softer” and more feminine way to say “I think”, “I believe”, “I observed”, or other direct phrases which are less frightening to people who rarely do such things.

This irritating trend can be traced directly back to a 1986 paper “Sexism in the Classroom” by Maya Sadker and David Sadker. They also wrote “Failing At Fairness: How Our Schools Cheat Girls” in 1995.
