English to Japanese translations [Non-PRO] Slang / Japanese youth/street slang and terminology
English term or phrase:tough female
Hello. I'm interested in Japanese youth, street and college slang terminology that's used for people. What are Japanese (youth, street and college) slang terms (katakana, add all the various Japanese dialects: Hokkaidō, Tōhoku, Kantō, Eastern Japanese, Western Japanese, Kyūshū, Ryukyu,etc.) for a "Tough female"? When you post your responses and peer comments please use Romanized Japanese, and please post as many slang terms as possible. Thank you. :D
Hello. I should have pointed out that I already know of the term, "sukeban" as used for a term for "tough female". But is "sukeban" used for both "young woman" and "old woman"?
What are Japanese slang terms used to mean "tough female" besides "sukeban"?
I would like to get the attention of the Professional Japanese slang translators here to get their answers.
