I just got into a discussion with my friend about terms used to refer to a sex.

You can call a male a "guy" after about age 13.
You can call a female a "girl" up to age 18.

"Guy" works up until 30 or 40+ when "man" suffices.

What are your thoughts about this?

What terms do you use?
Is "chick" ever acceptable?
Under what circumstances?
What works for females over 18?
