I'm American so I may be biased but I just don't like the word mate. I've got a biology degree and worked with zoo animals for a while so when I hear the word mate I don't think of a loving relationship or an important person. I think "oh yeah. my mate? it's that dude/chick over there. We're both trapped here so I figured you know why not fuck em." So I guess to me mate and slampeice or bitch feels equivalent. What about you?

When I was in the States I hated hearing the word "bro" ...1
