- (colloquial) woman, broad
- While not inherently pejorative when referring to strangers, using Tante to refer to a woman is less polite than the corresponding male term, Typ. Unlike men with Typ, usage of Tante by women to refer to themselves is a lot rarer and usually restricted to refer to a specific scene. (E.g. Motorradtante, 'biker chick'.) Calling a personal acquaintance a 'Tante' therefor often carries a pejorative tone.
