    I should point out that bird is more of a dialect thing. Anyone who calls me a 'bird' gets labelled chauvenist (yes, I butchered that spelling) pig in my mind.

    I don't actually mind the term 'bird' its sort of endearing. I don't find it disrespectful or anything of the sort. So yea, I reckon it maybe is a dialect/area issue more than anything.

    I am in Essex so it's bird or woman/girl, but actually we are mostly known as ****s! Not fair!

    And if talking about someone's wife, it's missus or woman! (Bird applies to g/f)
