Anyway, what is the feminine form of mate then ?
Maybe "femate"?

Maybe it is somewhat gender in-specific, but it always seemed like more of a male term to me. But what do I know? Some would just call me a silly American fool! That "femate" comment wasn't meant to tease you in particular, Archie....it just sounded kind of funny to me at the time.

I am clarifying ... not the Femate thing ... but the pattern of quoting which I mistakenly done, and you are repeating it you are to delete the blue part

I am afraid that the mistake is not intentionally repeated by you, but the cat in your sig is behind all the mischief

OK, I'm a bit freaked out now...who is this Jan you're talking about?

My real name actually is Jan...which is a male name here in Germany. I used to live in the USA though (would love to return there)...pretty funny when people on the phone called me "Miss" because both my name and my not-so-deep voice confused them.

Dude - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
The original use of dude implied an individual unfamiliar with the demands of life outside of urban settings, as in dude ranch, a ranch catering to urbanites seeking more rural experiences. The implicit contrast is with those persons accustomed to a given frontier, agricultural, mining or other exurban setting. This usage continues into the present.
The term "dude" was first used in print in 1870, in Putnam's Magazine.[5]
One of the earliest books to use the word was The Home and Farm Manual, written by Jonathan Periam in 1883. In that work, Periam used the term "dude" several times to denote an ill-bred and ignorant, but ostentatious, man from the city. The term was also used as a job description such as "bush hook dude" [6] as a position on a railroad in the 1880s.
"Dude ranches", to which wealthy Easterners came to experience the "cowboy life," began to appear in the American West in the early 20th century.
The oldest usage was typically applied to a well-dressed male, or one who is unfamiliar with life outside a large city.[citation needed] These definitions later gave rise to a more technical definition: "an Easterner in the West" (United States).[7] Thus "dude" was used to describe the prude wealthy men of the rustic western expansion of the United States during the 19th century by German settlers of the American Old East.[citation needed]
The word became prominent in surfer culture in the early 1960s, but it wasn't until the mid-'70s that it started creeping into the mainstream. Some usages in mainly American pop culture have contributed to the spread of this word.

Talking of gender issues my 7-year-old grandson's class at school were asked if they knew what the term was for a female moth.

His hand shot up straight away and his teacher asked; "Yes, Louis, do you know the answer?"

"Yes, Miss," came the reply, "it's a myth!"
