"Dames"?   That's like a Hoboken/Sinatra kinda of thing.  I'm from Jersey City.   The correct word is "broads".

Someone help me out here...if you "accidentally" let the door slip just as she's walking through and it traps her skirt and rips it off and she's not wearing underwear, are you supposed to compliment her wax-job even if you can see stubble?

Now you're in trouble. Dolls do not like to be called "skirts."

If she's wearing tear-away clothes and no underwear, then yeah, complimenting her wax job is probably a safe approach.

Whatever happened to the good old days when men were gentlemanly enough to call 'em birds?

This.

The next time you think about calling a skirt a "broad", you call that doll a "babe" instead.

Isn't dame an honorific title, like knight?

I'm pretty sure Julie Andrews is a dame.
