This is a topic that has come up often with friends on Facebook and in real life over the years.  I’m curious to see what we can find out here.  So, women who are over 18, here is a poll (sorry guys, maybe next time):

Answers inspired by Shawn Gordon of LDS Dimension.  More on his new dating site in an upcoming post.

If you’d rather not be called a chick/woman/girl (any of these) or prefer lady or woman over girl etc., how come?  Please share!

Thanks,

-Rachel

I'm a single mom of 2: a Southern CA native, who transplanted to Utah 4 years ago. I have one 18 year old who is off to the Ivy League, and one 14 year old who is in high school. I served an LDS Mission to Southern France and I’ve also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Idaho, Northern Arizona, and New Hampshire. I love 80’s music, classical music, choral music, playing the piano, singing, speaking what French I still remember, and talking about history and music with whomever will listen. I love that my kids are better at math than I was at their age. (But they still get frequent historical references from me…anyone familiar with Ducky from NCIS? He’s that kind of medical examiner, I’m that kind of mom.) My kids also think I know all the lyrics to all the songs from the 80’s, mainly because I’m good at making them up and faking it when I don’t know. Sometimes they catch me. I’m currently disabled with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I want to get better (of course) and be an advocate for trauma survivors and others with mental illnesses. I like people in general. I suffer from the delusion that I can make everyone my friend, but of course that isn’t possible: but I still believe that the world can be a better place.

One thought on “(POLL) Attention Women/Chicks/Girls: what do you like to be called?

  1. Honestly it has to do with the intent behind the endearment. I have a friend’s husband who calls me chick and it is really cute. I have co-workers who all me chica and it makes me smile. So it has more to do with the intent of the person and the feelings behind the endearment.
