identification

How do you like to be referred to, what do you identify primariliy as? As in: woman, girl, man, boy, guy, dude (but not The Dude, there's only one duderino after all), chihuahua, grrl, kid, etc. Why?

I myself prefer to be called a kid. I think it fits me better than any other term, but it seems to throws people off because they don't understand how I can use a gender neutral word and then claim various traits from the girly-realm. Like, if I'm not a "woman" than I have to portray the stereotypical image of masculine female. That's not the only misunderstanding of it, but it's the main one.
