«There were some guys there» = There were some male humans

«Hey guys!» = Everyone and everything including cats, plants, and even female humans


#5

Have never used the term in my life. Too PGL instructor for me.


#6

“Other” because I have used it as a non-gender specific term before, but a few non male people have told me it’s not very inclusive… so I try to avoid it. Don’t think anyone who does use it is a raging misogynist or anything though

:smiley:

yeah, there has to be at least one man there. so really, guys isn’t the progressive term it would like to think it is, and is actually some patriarchal bullshit term.


#9

Got no problems with it being used for all men, all women or a mix.


#10

i would say this is probably overthinking it a bit tbh


#11

I might have said that with some very dry humour. I am not funny.


#12
