Women are not guys!

We must stop lumping women into the term GUYS. It is a rule in my Speech class. Students may NOT refer to their classmates as YOU GUYS during a speech. They lose two¬† points (-2) each time they say that. WHY? Because if I walk into a classroom with 3 men and 3 women, I cannot say, “Hi, Gals. How are you today?” That is unacceptable. Degendering women by calling them GUYS is just wrong and it MUST stop!
