米知道

I was QQ-ing with a friend, who is from China, and he said something strange: "米知道?"

He said "米" refers to me. He can't explain it to me in English, but if I had to guess, is "米" the Chinese equivalent of the hispanic "mami"? Or am I mistaken? Can I, a woman, use the term "米"?

What context / who can you use the term "米" with?

    Oh... I haven't heard this one before, but I think it might just be character substitution, as young people sometimes do on the internet.

    米 = 你?
    just like 偶=我; 有木有 = 有没有; 滴 = 的; 神码 = 什么; 酱 = 这样; 表 = 不要; (and there are many others but I don't know the slang very well!)
    This is just my guess!

    I haven't seen anyone using 米 to replace 你 yet... It could just be a typo, as it's very easy to mistakenly type 米(mi) instead of 你(ni)...

    Usuauly 米 is the internet slang for 没, as in 米有. However, using 米 to refer to a person seems to be an extremely rare usage to me. I wouldn't recommend using this slang (if it is not a typo) for in this sense.
