    Smile Can 'man' refer to a woman?

    Lisa: But here goes. I believe in you.
    Bart: Thanks, man.
    Hello there!

    Can the word of 'man' refer to a woman? I heard Bart called Lisa, his sister, man in the cartoon of The Simpsons.

    I suppose 'man' means my friend here.

    Thanks in advance!

    Man can refer to a woman in the same sense that dude can: in a very informal way!
