if ur idea of a clever rebuttal is to throw a centuries old definition of a word back at someone youre boring and a little terrible tbh

delcat: "Dude" actually has gender-neutral origins dating back to the 1870's. It didn't become associated with men until the 1960's. That's ninety years of gender neutrality! It's kinda neat.

petition to reclaim dude from the dudely masses.

"I’m a dude. He’s a dude. She’s a dude. We’re all dudes, hey!" —Good Burger, laying the foundation for positive change

That’s pretty rad; I use dude across the board so it’s good to know I WAS ALWAYS SORT OF RIGHT

reclaiming a word isnt as simple as throwing outdated and culturally irrelevant origins about- language evolves and many words do not have the same meanings they did in the 19th century!

if a word has years of history as a gendered term you still should not use it as a generalization for a group of people if there’s a possibility you might misgender someone or make someone uncomfortable!! it doesn’t matter if you use the word as in a gender neutral way, your personal intentions dont absolve it of its recent and more relevant history as a gendered term
