Emma Stone and Lena Dunham are over people calling them "baby," "honey" or "sweetheart" in random conversations.

The duo dished on just that on a "mini" episode of Lena's podcast when they chatted about sexist nicknames they've dealt with and why they think their male coworkers should stop using them, according to People.

Rather the nicknames we already mentioned, Emma said she would want people to just call her "Em" or a more badass "Dragon" (yes, seriously). "Anyone can call me 'Em.' That feels great," she said. "It feels personal and lovely, and you don't have to say sweetheart. You can just say 'Em.'"

As for that Dragon nickname, Emma said, "I just finished a movie and (a security guard on the film) said, 'Let me help you out, ma'am.' Like helping me out of a van, which, you know, was lovely. And I said, 'Please don't call me ma'am.' And he said, 'OK, what would you like me to call you?' And I said, 'Dragon. And I'll call you Nighthawk.' Which is from Stepbrothers. So for the whole movie, he called me Dragon. Which, you call someone Dragon -- that's a hell of a name."
13th Annual Gala in the Garden"That's so good!" Lena replied, before Emma added, "I called him Nighthawk the whole time," Stone said. "It was great!" Other nicknames they both will rock with are "Pal," "Kid," "Dude," "Bud," and "Buck-o."

"Oh I love 'buck-o,'" Emma said when Lena suggested it. "I want people to call me 'buck-o' so much." Buck-O it is Emma. All jokes aside, we love that these two are getting candid about sexist things they've experienced and trying to change it. The best thing they can do to make a difference is get the word out and take steps to make things better.
