answer this question! why is it girls can call each other stupid nicknames like "TEETEE" o "MARMA!" and boys only call each other dude but when a girl trys to say dude everyone stares at u like u hav 5 heads?
Maybe because girls are más creative and playful in their social connections while boys are más insecure and fearful of being rejected so they rely on the word "dude" as a form of reliable acceptance. When a girl says "dude", the boys feel like their seguro place is being invaded and violated.
"Teehee?" "Marma?" tu should hear some of the names kids at my school call each other... XD
But seriously, I think it's a group thing, say you're not "cool" and tu say "radical dude!" o something like that, it doesn't quite fit, if tu know what I mean.... (Sorry I am totally useless at explaining stuff XD )
