I always assumed she was saying "Damn chica" because its extremely common for camp, flamboyant gay male and transgender characters to refer to men using feminine names and pronouns, especially when they are talking about someone who they don't like or who has pissed them off (but also to refer to their gay male friends, but its usually an insult or an expression of dislike, like when Hermaphrobot uses it.)   Hence "queen" is often used to describe a camp, bitchy male.  Other common phrases in gaybars when referring to other men: "what is that bitch doing here? Who does she think she is?" and "Oh my god, what a fucking queen.  What's her problem?"   Another example: The Sisters in the Shawshank Redemption.  

But everyone I know says they hear "damn chico" but even though it's my favourite moment in futurama and i've listened to it squillions of times, all I ever hear is "damn chica".  

Anyone willing to put this to bed like a cheap whore once and for all?

I believe it is, " damn chica." The episode I'm getting that from is, " Fry and the Slurm Factory." I think that would make more sense, anyway.

I've always heard it as "damn chica" too. You should tell everyone you know that they are all fools of the highest calibre.

@Goldfish>The curse is a deliberate phonetic mixture of "chica" and "chico".
As Hermaphrodismbot is "between genders", the used swearword is is also a mix of the female and male form.

(Even if above explanation were not true, you should still go with it. It credits the joke a more elaborate setup than a mere curse, and you can claim you got that little hidden detail).

You could check the subtitles. That should lay the issue to rest once and for all (as well as allowing you to call everybody fools of the highest calibre for not having thought of this solution themselves).
