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!
People speak all kinds of things into existence, every minute, hour, day. We create the world with the words we speak, hardly understanding that instead of creating turmoil, angst and chaos, we can create peace, harmony and prosperity, simply by changing the WORDS WE SPEAK.
My newsletter is a commentary on numerous subjects from spirituality to homelessness, racial profiling and the President of the United States.
