Feeling a certain way about a word doesn't change its meaning. A girl isn't a woman. Just because one is ok with being called both doesn't change the meaning of the word.

Sort of like that science meme. Science is still true even if you don't believe in it.

But regardless of what some dusty old dictionary says, my point is that I don't mind if someone calls me girl/babe/lady. It doesn't offend me. Last I knew I'm allowed to NOT be offended. Hard to tell nowadays when everyone is offended by everything.
