comment Are there any situations where かしら is considered appropriate/normal for males to use?
I do actually have a non-gay co-worker who routinely uses かしら, and it just comes off as effiminate/childish... though he also doesn't refer to himself as 私 but as "Turugi"

-1 Except for this わ is not the わ that women use at the end of their sentence. It actually is short for "私"

comment When do you use 下さい as opposed to ください
My wife says this sounds right, but I'm going to ask my co-workers just to double-check. (they didn't have an answer before, but saying this may jog their memory)

comment How rude is it to say 寝ぼけてるんじゃねぇよ!
just because someone used that phrase with him before doesn't mean that YOU can use it. Even if you are the same age and position, it depends on how close of a friend he sees you. Though what I suspect happened was that he was just surprised that you said that, esp. if you haven't used such a impolite phrase with him before. He may also not have known you were joking or weren't offended. Just ask him about it

匹 is used alot by Japanese people, but it is not correct. 羽 is grammatically correct.

comment Commonness of casual phrases like “あたし” and “ちっちゃい”
I don't think chicchai is limited to HS students as I've heard many people at my work, both males and females, use it in reference to the size of my head (silly Japanese people). -1: Also, while I'll agree with you that Atashi is used to be cute, and may have it's biggest usage among HS, it is definitely not limited to that.

@ali - while I agree with you on atashi being feminine, I've never heard chicchai used solely by women or referred to as a feminine

@poke: usually the non-romaji books first lesson will be learning hiragana.
