I have no idea. It's rude, and it's not even a proper title.

It can be, when not used as a term of endearment. I sure wouldn't want someone shouting "hey, babe get us some more beers!", but if it was like my fiancé they could say "hey babe, what kind of ice cream do you want?" As long as they are saying it in a nice voice they're usually being nice.

Guys tend to call girls "babe" as a term of endearment, although I guess it could also be misused too.

Use of the word babe is also a socio-cultural thing too. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't hear the word "babe" used too often in certain parts of the country, where they may have an alternative "nickname" for women.
