Default "Females"

Just a question to everyone out there. I have had a couple people (girlfriends usually) take issue with the fact that I sometimes use the term "female" when discussing differences between genders rather than "women." I certainly don't mean it in any derisive sense. I think it's just the habit from reading and commenting on scientific blogs etc., that use those terms (regardless of the species.) I think that girl/woman suggests different levels of maturation so I tend to avoid them unless the issue is specifically tied to age/experience. Anyways, I was just curious if anyone else has gotten flack for using male/female rather than men/women and what your thoughts on it are.
