Fun story, I work in higher ed and I was called out for using the term guys when referring to a large group of people. I now say folks. Important things of course.

We have real issues at our institution and yet I've attended more meetings about "microaggressions" than anything else.

Back to Ryan though. I think it's going to be a long time until we see or hear anything. More than a a year minimum.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

While you're correct that there are bigger battles than these, I recently realized that I have always used the term "guys" as sexually generic. But isn't, and as I opened my mouth in a room full of female students and one male suddenly it dawned on me what I was about to say. So yeah, I don't say that anymore either.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

I've heard plenty of females say "you guys" when talking to other females, so it depends on the person I suppose. Some people are just going to be offended by as much as they can, while others have bigger worries in life.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

I use guys and dudes so interchangeably with no gender assignment, I don’t really think about it. If someone is offended, I apologize and will try to be better.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

Im a woman and the term guys doesnt bother me at all. For me it depends more on the level of professionalism Im trying to have. If I were referring to clients at work Id never use it. If Im among friends and family I use it all the time. Dudes somehow seems a little more masculine to me though.

People that actually get offended by this should be excommunicated from society. They should be forced to try to start a new society in Central America where they will die after not knowing how to get their organic seaweed shakes and starve to death. Or get eaten by a jaguar. Or look incorrectly at some warlord who then gets "offended" and remedies the situation by beheading them.

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

Im female and not a native English speaker, so the term guys is/was confusing for me.
But I understand its a synonym for folks but without a deeper meaning of the thought if the gender is right or wrong.
I dont feel offended but I also dont feel as the word is then directed towards me, either

Re: Ryan Adams, abuse, and the Stans that love them.

If always being kind and respectful makes the world dull, than perhaps we need to re evaluate why we make the choices we make to make it exciting (ie: just being a dick to people).

If always being pointless and sanctimonious makes you feel good have at it. There are very serious problems in the world, if the use of the term "Guys" effects you that greatly i suggest you re evaluate your priorities. Although pettiness is a sign of good health at least.
