    Dudette is, I believe, the politically correct version for chicks.

    Chic was yiddish for friend as in boy chik

    over the years it has morphed to be female in gender and the friend part is gone and now intimates a good looking woman

    Can't even find references to the original anymore!

    Just to be clear, after living in Southern California my entire life....dude definitely refers to a man, as does bro. Chick, chica etc is used for a girl/woman.

    Ok, end of rant lol.

        I worked in a southwestern restaurant and was referred to as "the gringa"


        Ok, I had to read that a couple of times, but yes - it looks like someone is trying to "help" people by showing them how vulnerable their forums are before they get smacked.
