Of course we've all seen it - adult ass men calling themselves "girls". But what about other women?

When I was in my early 20's I'd use girl out of habit but once I got to a certain point, referring to myself as a girl felt weird, and I hate when other people do it to me still because it feels very infantilizing. I might look young but I'm still an adult woman.

I was just wondering, what about you all? Do you still use girl, or if not around what age did you stop? Do you find it odd for women who keep referring to themselves as girls past a certain age?

As many others have said, probably around 24-25. I don't find it odd in the sense of saying something like "I'm going to get together with the girls" at any age but I do occasionally find it a bit immature if someone 25+ is still refering to themselves individually as a girl.
