honestly my dad is such a freak he never says goodnight like a normal person he just says “i’ll be back” and he goes upstairs and when you ask where he is or go looking for him hes asleep and the next morning when you see him he just says “good morning im back’ like what is wrong with him
dude is a gender neutral term if you think differently you are wrong
In my experience of actual usage, it’s gender neutral as form of address, but not as a general noun. I’m curious if other people experience this differently.
Ohhh good point, true in my experience too.
