Japanese, general discussion on the language

I always hear the japanese male use 'umai', but they use 'oishii' too. But the girls, I've never heard of japanese girls saying 'umai' before. Is it 'wrong' for girls to use umai, like for example they also cannot really use 'da' or 'omae' or 'boku' or 'ore' because its too manly?
うまい to mean "delicious" has a somewhat masculine sound to it, although I think females use it somewhat often -- definitely more often than おれ or おまえ. When うまい is used to mean "skilled", I don't think it is markedly masculine at all.
