    It seems like a joke.

    Yeah, it's just a rude joke to tell a woman to calm down...

    Re: Chill your tits

    I notice a couple of people have inferred that this expression can only be used for a woman. I believe this is wrong.

    "Tits" usually refers to women.

    I wouldn't call it an "idiom". It most likely is a admonition to a woman to calm down. As phrased, it is rude.

    Re: Chill your tits

    not a teacher

    I've not seen it before but it seems to be a variation on phrases like "chill out" and "cool your jets".
    I agree with Mike, it's rude.

    Re: Chill your tits

    A high proportion of things found in the Urban Dictionary are at least slightly rude or offensive and care should be taken when using those phrases. In addition, the third word of your phrase is considered a swear word (in BrE) at least and should be asterisked - "t*ts". We would have known what the full word was.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Chill your tits

    And the asterisk does exactly what? I find that method to be less than effective.
