Has more than one meaning but is generally a term to describe a young woman amongst urban minorities. Shorty can mean:

- A female that is usually young in age/around her teens that is attractive.

- The man will use the term "shorty" to get the attention of a female that he is not familiar with but looking to talk to and possibly get her phone number.

- A man can also refer to a female as his shorty to imply her status as only being a just a girl friend that he chills with and more than often is also his fuck partner. She could be his woman on the side or one of other women he has a sexual relationship with.

- A man can either refer to a girl as shorty meaning that he doesn't care for her anymore than a girl friend or fuck partner. Or he can refer to the female as shorty implying that she is his down ass chick.
"Ay, check shorty out with that bangin' ass body."

"Ay shorty! What's your name?"

1: "Who was that fine ass female you were ridin' wit the other day ma dude?"

2: "Naw, that's just my shorty right there. She always down for whateva."

One of the defining characteristics of the sexes is their respective genetalia.

The term "shorty" refers to the small (by comparison to males) female organ of erectile tissue known as a clitorus.

Hence, it is a term used to refer to a female.
That is a girlshorty. I know this because she has a clitorus.
