Would you say this to:

2. A non-adult male
3. An adult female
4. A non-adult female

What variety of English do you speak?

To set the ball rolling:

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes
Wenglish (South Wales English)

ETA: Impressions so far: much as I expected, with some giving the impressioned at being really surprised at the idea of a child, especially a girl, being addressed as "man". Hoping for further responses.
