    Re: feminine gender

    If this is the act "to bugger" there is no distinction that I can imagine as the root word is 'buggery' - penetrative anal intercourse - male or female.

    If used as a mild 'curse/swear' "He is a little bugger!" it carries the same meaning as "Sod" (root word - sodomy - same meaning as above). Both are generally accepted as mildly offensive and not for polite conversation.

    In addition to the above- the same word would be used about a girl- 'She's a little bugger'.
