    Dude-
    As a native of Southern California (where the modern usage of "dude" originated), and having used it frequently since the inception of that modern usage (with the proper intonation, inflection and emphasis, and within the proper context), I can state without reservation that "dude" is not proper if applied to females. While some have used the term "dudette", that usage has never been widespread. The proper feminine counter to the masculine "dude" is "chick".

    That's correct- the classic, simple, "chick". As in "dudes 'n' chicks".
    "Dude, you gotta go to my party- gonna be lots of chicks there, man!"
    "He's a cool dude."
    "She's a cool chick."

    An alternate which has found broad acceptance in some contexts is "babe".
    "Dude- we need to find some babes to go to the beach with us."



    So sayeth the lxdude. Santa Monica born, SoCal raised.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    There were a couple of women lived in the house across from me for several years. One was definitely a 'dude'. I never understood why.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    I know nothing I'm afraid... apart from the fact that this thread is gone delightfully nuts already.. and we're only in infancy stages...



    It just makes me so proud...

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    That's where several of us are most comfortable.

    From what I heard, it was two days in a cheap hotel in Madrid with some guy named Enrique.
