The meaning of Duudes.com
The word Dude is a very common word, which is a friendly and casual way of saying guy. It is also an older word than one might think and has a very interesting (albeit uncertain) history that ties directly to the birth of the USA. “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, is a song whose melody exists since approximately 1750. The lyrics that are associated with the song were written by a British doctor, intent on mocking the American Colonials. A Yankee was a condescending term used by the British at the time that meant American colonist. Doodle was an uncultured person, and a Dandy was a person who was interested in how he looked, which could have the implication that the person had no substance, in other words was a conceited coward. This was the cultural climate that gave rise to the sentiment that America was distinct from Britain and they were unrightfully ruling the country.
In true American spirit, the oppression was crushed in The Revolutionary War of 1775. The arrogance of social elitism was put to shame, and the song mocking the Americans became a war song, enjoyed by all. Later the phrase Doodle Dandy became widely used to mean a fashionable city man, and it became shortened to Dude by the western ranchers who received city folk and gave them a ranch experience as a form of entertainment and broadening their horizons. This business model was called a Dude Ranch. Dudes were city slickers, unprepared for the hard life on a ranch, but it was recognized that they were versed in other ways of life that were alien to the ranchers, and there was no animosity in the term at that point. Ranch work and a simple life has a way of bringing people together.
With the passing of time, Dude became embraced and widely used by hippies, surfers, and other casual individualists. They would often stretch the word into Duude, to mean that there was something very important related to the guy. Perhaps something they needed to share with him, or perhaps they were just very happy to see them. The word has spread into mainstream language for many decades, even in other English speaking countries around the world, like in the UK and Australia for instance. Dude is associated very closely to a casual and youthful environment that is open to other people because all are considered equal. A place with no point of contention. Ironically enough, after centuries of evolution of meaning and usage, the word Dude is considered inappropriate in settings which are the opposite: Tradition focused, older (feeling it is important to portray being a grown up), judgment of others (as to whether or not they are fit for the environment), and seeking validation through formality, education, wealth, etc. People like the British at the time Yankee Doodle Dandy was written.
