I hate this gesture, it's so childish.

Maybe it should be specified that it's mostly used by women. I've rarely seen men doing it unless you know...

My aunt has a story about a man who was teaching a Japanese class to non-Japanese students, and introduced himself by repeatedly pointing at his nose and saying "Watashi wa sensei desu." Later he gave them a quiz where one of the questions asked what "Watashi wa sensei desu" meant, and they all answered, "This is my nose." This is why context is important. XD
