Is It Wrong To Call Your Friends, Who Are Girls, Girlfriends?

It sounds weird, but for me, every now and then I would say, "a girlfriend of mine", and all that when I'm in a conversation.
Is there anything wrong with that? I'm just genuinely curious because I had gone to this group last night with this friend of mine, and she told me after about me saying that word all the time, and that I shouldn't say it so much and just say "Friends" instead.
I'm not meaning anything sexual, I just sometimes call them that sometimes.
Did I do anything wrong? My friend makes it sound like I did...
Extra note I forgot to mention: I call my good friends girlfriends, girls who I go out more often with.
No, that is a term heterosexual women have often used to describe their female friends ("I’m having lunch with my girlfriends today"). Context is generally the clue.

I find it amazing that you even had to ask this question. The cancel culture has everyone under 35 on edge. Just say what you feel and screw the busy bodies.

[c=002673]No, you are fine.
We just happen to live in an age where every word uttered is put under a magnifying glass. [/c]

My wife often refers to her female friends as girlfriends. She isn't worried about any confusion about her sexual preference and laughingly says that the lesbians in the world have a different name than girlfriend when referring to their love interest.

You did nothing wrong, they are your girlfriends, and you calling them girlfriends is correct. Your friend is making a big deal about nothing, dismiss what they said, and carry on.

I've heard women say that a lot. You'll notice though, that males don't call their guy friends "boyfriends."

@sylvester true!

@sylvester Perhaps a bit of a double standard here, for girls, it's fine, and for guys it doesn't sound right. Funny how innocent things get all jumbled up like that.

I think the gender people have on edge.
Relax, you've done nothing wrong - with the possible exception of granting that girl from group that much power over you.

You’re going out with your girl friends/girlfriends. The “girls” are your boobs. I assume they always go with you.

that's pretty normal among American ladies to call friends who are girls, girlfriends
Crazychick · 36-40, F
I've heard it used in that context before. It's better than calling girls "guys". That's just insane.

No but if you’re talking about one girl and call her your girlfriend but be confusing
Just wait until your boyfriend refers to his buddies as boyfriends.

I, sweetie, tend to call my fellow trans friends as[i] 'my girls'[/i]....

@Jimmy2016 It's weird, isn't it?
