    Seriously, why do girls, whether it be on facebook, via text messaging or in person, now often use male sayings such as lad, man, dude, brother. How are these things male sayings? You don't have some sort of gender right over words, fool

    Why do you use such sayings? Because I can, and they come naturally to me :curious: (my mum has actually lately been commenting whenever I say "man" which is a lot more than I thought! I just kind of subconsciously say "man, I'm tired!") it's called picking stuff up. I doubt many people set out to use words like "cool" all the time but lots of people just end up saying it because they pick it up.

    Don't you think its manly to say ' hey man, i'll catch you later because im off out. Speak later dude' I get this off girls all the time on facebook and its an instant turn off. It usually leads to the instant 'remove from friends' moment! No.... ah, man! This must be why I'm still single :rolleyes:

    Women call each other their *****es or whatever else they say. If I were to say 'hey *****, you okay?' you'd be livid with it! so why do you now all of a sudden think you're a bunch of Jessie J's who can 'do it like a dude'? It's something called joking, maybe you've heard of it? I have guy friends say it to me all the time, and vice versa.

    Im not even trolling. I would never get with a woman who addressed me as lad, ever! just as I would expect a girl never to get with me for addressing her as *****! Do you find "lad" offensive? I always find it quite nice, "lad" is always the kind of thing a dad says of course, the meaning has been skewed these days.

    i'll call a girl gorgeous, i'll call her beautiful, i'll call her precious, or whatever else I want to call her but the moment she says dude or lad im just like o.O

    Seriously, one of the most attractive things about a woman is when she acts feminine but all I see in Britain these days 9/10 is women who want to act like men. Constantly swear, act like lads, speak like lads. What is the world coming to? We got women acting like lads and then men like Alex Reid trying to be women. FML! Saying dude etc doesn't automatically mean you're trying to act like a lad or that you're not capable of being feminine

    Im also not against gays or lesbians or bisexuals because thats natural. If you were a man then act like a man regardless of sexuality. If you are a woman then act like a woman regardless of sexuality. Oh, so you're just against tomboys and transsexuals then :rolleyes:

    Well done :congrats:

    OP are you northern (or a pirate)? Because I don't think us southerners call each other lads and lasses.

    I don't think anyone can use the term "dude" with any seriousness since we first started using it after "Bill and Teds excellent adventure" and "Wayne's World" came out.

    Also, what is brah? Is that a black thing? Is that like. Yo bro, whassup my homie? I can't even use yo with a straight face seeing as I remember them explaining what it meant on Newsround with a little rap: "Yo is not yes or no its hello!"

    TBH I think any girls or boys using these phrases are just having a laugh and not using it seriously. Anyone who does use these phrases seriously is probably a bit :broken:

    Aye Jim lad.

    Party on dude.

    Because IQ is sooooooo accurate! :rolleyes:
    How does calling you an idiot make me a feminist supremacist? Surely it makes me an intelligence supremacist? I didn't mention anything about your gender in the post - unlike you, who thinks that girls shouldn't be able to say certain words simply because of their gender.
    For someone who claims to be intelligent, you don't seem to have that much of a grasp on things, love.

    Because we look up to man and we want to be cool like them so we just you know steal some of their vocabulary and show 'em how 'ard we are.
    Or we could just be making fun of man, it could happen, it is not totally impossible. If you noticed girls only use these phrases when they are fooling around and having a bit of fun.

    Overall it is fair to say we girls are amused by the weird ways of the males and have concluded that by copying them we can keep peace between the two alien genders.

    Amen.
