apparently, in 1883, the year "dude" was coined in new york city to refer to that era's decadent fashionistas, the word "dudine" was also coined for women.

two years later, "dudess" was unveiled. funny that neither made it to the present. although i would guess "dude" only made it to us because it was pulled into a bit of social satire -- to describe eastern city slickers playing cowboy in the West.
