President Obama does it, the waitress at my local diner does it: “How are you guys doing?”
When, exactly, did we start addressing a group of women as “guys”? I watched a female news reporter say “and now back to you guys in the studio,” and the guys were two female anchors – jeez Louise! How soon can we expect to hear 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh say, “OK, gals, now let’s go out and win one for the Gipper!”
I don’t know any man who would put up with being called “gal” more than once, even by the president of the United States!
I think women should get mad as hell and stop putting up with being called “guys.”
