Admittedly, I do this all the time.

I don't refer to chicks as dudes. It just seems wrong.

It probably is.  Maybe it's just me and my crazy LA ways, but I just tend to refer to everyone that way.  Not like "I was talking to this dude, and..." (when referring to a female), but more like "DUDE!!!  You'll never guess what happened" when speaking to a female.

MA, your statement offends me as a southerner because I too refer to both males and females as dudes in the same context

Next thing you know, you'll tell me "y'all" is Southern too  ::)

Perhaps we're twins separated at birth and across a half a decade of the time/space continuum?

Now that's just wrong.

A little weird -- even for me :)


I think I will have to revert back to the oldie, but goodie "homeslice."

I call the BF "brah" as a joke sometimes, but it just comes out as "bra." Complicated.
