Dude, I use for male and female, same as I do with Guys. I would never use Dudette, that is just totally wrong Dude!

You know when someone's angry at you online, here's what you do.

You ignore them. you carry on a conversation with those around them and you don't respond to their posts. You be light, you be jolly and you give NO indication that you can even see their posts.

They get so wound up they are chewing their keyboard and there's nothing they can do

It is very childish but immensely satisfying. blush

Out HT (female) calls us "Lads". There's one male member of staff. hmm

Use lads here too. For my approaching their seventies Irish aunts in particular grin

Dudes and guys are unisex these days IMO.
