...I don't get why this is bad; sounds like something I'd do as a bored TSA agent
a sense of humor
Yeah, I think that's where you lost her.
can someone get her a new word. Patriarchy is getting pretty old. Another word that has become meaningless.
not understanding facial recognition
Edit: and basic politeness/customer service
Caps lock means you're serious
Maybe he's just from North Carolina
As a man who just doesn't naturally smile, I sorta feel her pain. I can be walking around perfectly content, and there always has to be that one asshole that asks me why I look so angry or why don't I smile. Bitch go fuck yourself.
Can I blame the patriarchy for this as well?
Wow she went straight for the sexistest interpretation huh? It couldn't possibly be because we live in a system where proof of identity is required to allow you onto massive planes loaded with flammable liquid which in the past has been used as a weapon of terrorism to kill thousands of people, and the fucking guy taking your picture is just trying to be personable and light-hearted?
Are you sure? From my experience (as a dirty foreigner) I assumed sense of humour bypass surgery was a pre-requisite for getting a job in the TSA.
There goes my confidence in humanity. TSA employees are the lowest order of scum on the face of the earth, but "muh patriarchy" has nothing to do with why.
Be less concerned with "SMILE for the camera!" and more concerned with "Smile for the CAMERA" as facial recognition spreads like a big-government-sponsored plague. Or, to put it another way, stop being right for the wrong reasons.
At a certain point, I think these people are just playing to their audiences and post shit like this for the likes.
She's great at parties.
Do they even know why they're offended anymore?
Men have said awful things to me, disgusting terrible things. But nothing near as bad as what women have said about me behind my back. I don’t hate men. And I don’t hate women. Sometimes PEOPLE just suck, and I move on.
Yet she probably did smile and carried on like normal afterwards. Only to get to her gate and post this in a fit of impotent rage.
When someone has a lot of power over you, there's also a responsibility. A vindictive TSA agent could get someone to miss their flight without a problem. If they're good they should try to stay very far away from anyone's boundaries.
Eh, TSA sucks anyway. Just security theatre and a waste of taxpayer money.
Nah, fuck the TSA.
How do you plan on burning something that doesn’t exist?
Damn patriarchy and their
polite TSA agents
Please tell me that's a shitpost...
That sounds like the most pleasant TSA agent you could ever meet. How could you be offended by this?
Sounds like someone from Seattle or Portland found thmesleves in a Midwestern or Southern airport.
If the TSA agent is bored out of their fucking mind and trying to break the monotony
Can we trade TSA agents? Mine just glared at everyone and hardly says anything...
dear god i hope she's ok
truly the patriarchy is the worst thing in the world
THIS PERSON WAS SUPER NICE TO ME WTF
When I flew from Austin to Boston a few years ago, the woman in front of me gave the TSA guy a bunch of shit when he said darling too. It was literally just a "Good mornin' darlin', step right up here".
I don't know how long she was in Texas but maybe she should have realized by then that that's just how literally everybody talks. He's not harassing you, he's being polite.
Oh em gee you guys, I'm like, super oppressed.
I read this in PJW's mocking tweet reading voice.
Probably thought he was dealing with a 4 year old.
I pressed the wrong comment button like 5 times before I realized what was happening
BELIEVE ALL WAAAAAHHHMEN!!
Jeez chill out.
I could only imagine the mental breakdown they would have if this person came to the south. Every bartender, every cashier, pretty much anyone in the service industry calls everyone baby, honey, sugar, love, darlin, etc. etc.
Buts it’s definitely a patriarchal conspiracy.
I think detecting subtle differences in intent is becoming a lost art. I actually do agree that there are condescending men who call young women “honey,” or “darling,” but it’s also common in the south where it’s just a substitute for sir or ma’am.
Who knows in this instance.
HE FUCKING SAID GOOD MORNING??????
He could probably smell the xender studies degree stench wafting out of your blue botched pixie cut and decided it was time to make your day.
A polite man gives a woman the excuse she's looking for.
Toniiiiiiiiiiiiiggght, we are young.
(turns the dial to 11)
So lets set the world on FIRE!
I'm guessing satire.
It is annoying when people tell you to smile. Like just let me have my resting bitch face. Especially at TSA.
I like being called darling/sweetheart by strangers! It feels more "youthful" than ma'am...
Am a TSA Officer, smaller airports tend to be the most friendly, like mine. At Larger airports you tend to find the officers just trying to get through the day. Smaller airports usually actually enjoy interacting with the public. I love my passengers, especially my weekly ones. We know some of them by name and ask how their kids are and other small talk. Of course we get more angry passengers than friendly ones.
Just remember to thank them for their service! It always turns a really awful day of getting screamed at by passengers into a better day knowing someone appreciates your dedication to the protection of the country.
Is there a "roll your eyes at how fucking stupid you sound" reaction available on Facebook now?
Darling needs to relax
How is that even the patriarchy?
I just needs ta check inside ya assho'
No given vasectomy is 100% guaranteed to be reversible.
But apparently our Author isn't straight ... so they don't actually get to HAVE an opinion on the subject given the regressive rules that say men aren't entitled to an opinion on Abortion.
Can't have it both ways.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE TOLL THREE VASECTOMIES CAN HAVE ON A PERSON.
SNIP SNAP SNIP SNAP SNIP SNAP
Birth control does more than just stop yer pregnancy, ya dumb twatsicles. Holy sheets, the ignorance on these stupid 'rinas. I know what's best for you, person whose situation I don't even know!
I'mma need some context for this tweet, though. What's she mean "got their gfs birth control"? Are these women not allowed to go to the doctor and ask for thwir own Rx?
1) vasectomy is not always reversible, in fact as time passes your chance of a successful reversal decrease
2) wasn't it a feminist organisation (maybe NOW or something like that) that went against doing research on male birth control?
Snip snap, snip snap!
TBH if I could know for sure that a vasectomy was reversible years down the road I might be more inclined to get one. That being said, if there was a hormonal option for men or something similar along the lines of birth control I'd be open to that as well.
In a monogamous relationship I'm more worried about an unexpected pregnancy than STDs and, being a pro-life individual, is like to see more readily accessible and reliable options of birth control out there. Sorry, you can't really blame the patriarchy for this one.
Edit: also, if it truly is "your body, your choice" then would you not support women who choose to take birth control. If the narrative is "I consented to sex but not to pregnancy" (which is a weak and stupid argument for using abortion as BC) then would the onus not be on the female to remain un-impregnated? If it's your body and your choice then let's go all the way and remove actual, legal double standards like wage garnishment for child support as I'm sure the father didn't consent to a pregnancy either. Your choice, sure, but your choice all the way. If you're going to abort you can't turn around and argue that you need money because you care about the well-being of the child because you considered straight up murdering it before. Your choice, your responsibility. That's not the patriarchy, that's what you're asking for.
Or is feminism about special treatment for women and not equality?
If you can, wear a condom, if you can’t because of allergies or don’t want to, talk to your partner to see what you can both do to prevent unwanted pregnancies. It’s that simple. Having males be the only ones who have to make sure that pregnancy doesn’t happen is irresponsible and stupid.
Considering the rising of paternity fraud, vasectomy is a good idea
Rather ironic that women complain about men making the reproductive health choices for women, assuming that women had no part of that decision whatsoever. Sounds like she believes women have no agency at all.
No penis? no opinion! My girl is on the pill and we use condoms too just to be doubly safe (and for easier clean-up). Surgery should never be your first choice in such matters.
It is very hard for men under the age of 30 to get vasectomies IIRC because no doctor wants to do it on someone so young.
But can't vasectomies spontaneously fail? I thought I heard about cases where the vas deferens grow back and reattach on their own
Vasectomies are awesome... when you’re done having kids. I watched my husband get his done (sick pleasure after birthing his three kids) and reattaching that shit isn’t guaranteed.
I wonder (((who))) is pushing to normalize vasectomies
Birth control is 100% more reversible than sterilisation??
Then date a trans man if you hate cis men so much. No birth control necessary since they can't give you children anyway.
"Vasectomy is easier for me because remembering to take a pill once a day is too hard…"
Bold of them to assume that the women aren't the ones making choices about their reproductive health.
Changing your mind during sex is fine. Anyone is allowed to repeal consent before, or during the act. And if you did, and the other person kept going, then it's rape. Thing is though, the verbal no is just as important as the verbal yes. He didn't do anything wrong because there's no way he could have known you wanted him to stop.
If you're having sex with someone and want it to stop, but never actually say so, that's 100% your own fault. Yes you can claim "oh but my body language!" But everyone reads body language differently. You be no way of knowing if your body language was clear enough, or if he ever even picked up on it, and a court absolutely can't prosecute based on fucking body language.
If he didn’t know to stop because you didn’t tell him. That’s not his fault. You gotta speak up. He doesn’t deserve to get into trouble just because you didn’t do anything to stop him.
I've stopped sexual encounters just because my partner didnt seem to be into it.
That said, if you consented and then never revoked the consent in any obvious manner, it wasn't rape. You had a bad experience but a dude doesn't deserve to be labelled a "rapist" because you were "afraid" to say "stop".
You're allowed to say no at any time even if you said yes but...you have to say it or indicate it explicitly. Making a weird face at some point doesn't count.
You can still feel raped since, yeah, you didn't want it anymore but that's different than saying it and the other person continuing on after ignoring it. There was nothing to ignore.
This person is truly disgusting
This shit is why men hate us and avoid us and tbh, Im about to do the same thing
Feminists need to leave the dating pool, they're ruining sex for everyone with this fake rape shit. Just leave society alone, go invest in some sex toys, and stay in your room forever. You are obviously too mentally immature for sex and to talk to your partner about what you will and won't do with him.
She raped the dude because she deceived him.
What CW? Content warning?
Fuck this so much. Ok, it sucked for you. Tough shit. You verbally consented then changed your mind while it was happening and didn't tell them to stop. You're allowed to say it sucked. You're allowed to feel gross and regret the experience. You're absolutely not allowed to call it rape, because it absolutely wasn't. Fuck you.
Consent is like tea. Even if someone says they like it, and drink it happily, you might have still done a terrible and hurtful crime, and there is no way of ever knowing.
at least the bottom people are sane
The whole "hyper protective father" trope is mostly the work of TV shows and movies. Honestly, most dads I've seen are yes, protective of their daughters (and sons but in a different way) but not to the degree that media would have you believe (most of the time). Also, I've seen mothers be just as wary of teenage girls or the girl their son is seeing as I have fathers about teenage boys or who their daughter is seeing.
But idk, I'm gay so I've never had to deal with the whole 'hyper-protective of his daughter' dad anyway. At worst, I deal with dads who just hope I'm the "woman" in the relationship and their son is the "man".
If you see "feminist" in anyone's URL, fucking book it
Do all SJW women have daddy issues or something?
Tumblrinas cant understand real love and care because of all their daddy issues
Do feminists ever say anything kind or generous or even just neutral about men these days?
They can't understand it, because they never had fathers of their own.
Oddly enough, Venus is the Roman goddess of beauty and shit
If I ever have a daughter, I'll warn and protect her from bad men.
If I ever have a son, I'll warn and protect him from bad women.
Guys can be bad, girls can be bad, anyone can hurt you, abuse you, break your heart.
I don't agree with the overarching general statement that men are protective of women because they think they're property, but I do hate people being protective of women in a different way than they would be protective of a man.
My dad is the type to tell me men are trash, they're only out for one thing, he will protect me from every danger on earth, I shouldn't be lifting heavy groceries, I shouldn't have to work. If he wouldn't say that to a hypothetical son, I don't want to hear it. He doesn't think I'm property, and he does care, he's just a tad sexist and it muddles the niceness of the care.
I don't know about point number 1, but number 2 is entirely accurate.
You put your dick in my daughter, buy me a new one.
hippity hoppity daughters are property
The only other times I've seen this post have been with only the OP's post, but seeing all the sanity has rekindled my faith in humanity.
Female here and I'm pretty done with machismo in most cultures. It's not every guy.
I experience it at work more as an adult and immature guys as I was an adolescent.
I also grew up in a toxic environment that promotes, if a girl was interested in a guy, it was only for dick and not for them or their common interests.
Maybe I had bad luck, but I'm not the only one to experience this. This is real to some people.
My wife is currently pregnant with our daughter. I definitely want her to be safe from all physical and emotional harm so she can have a full life, but sometimes, I'm more fearful that she'll be influenced by morons like this.
it's not sunday yet but hey, I'm not complaining
NPC can not understand love
It reminds me of pro-choice argument that the pro-life people want to "control women's bodies". It can't be that they value the life of the unborn human, the body part meant to hold little humans is just the gateway to control the kidneys, lungs, and all the other parts of a woman that pro-lifers secretly want to control. As if renal domination is the key to global domination.
Here's a hint, if you want to stop people from acting a certain way, don't demonize them before others by mischaracterizing their behavior. If you think some fathers are overbearing, slandering them by denying their love won't change that.
This belongs more on Sanity Sunday.
These posts are always the product of a single-parent household. Laugh it off if you want, but single-parent households are an epidemic. The results are poisonous to society.
what about rich black people?
BAN THE WHITES FROM THE THRIFTS
Let's settle this by asking the thrift store owners if they're alright with it. What? They like having a thriving business? Well, that settles it then.
Ah, but if the rich kids shopped only at the outlets, you'd be complaining that you can't shop there and that they have a look that you can't afford. You just can't with these people. Growing up in the early 80s, thrift stores or bargain marts as they were called, were looked down on. My family couldn't afford the styles I wanted, a lot of it was DIY. I'm glad things have changed and it's more acceptable to wear thrifted stuff. And I don't know where the hell these people live, but at my local animal rescue shop, brand name jeans cost me only $6, tops can be $3-4. She must shop at those boutiques/vintage malls where the starting price is $20.
They won't even consider that the same white kids might have gotten that bag and those shoes in a thrift store in the first place BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T AFFORD THEM OTHERWISE.
My (very white) family was not exactly rolling in cash when I was a kid and the occasional trip to the Value Village or hand me downs were pretty much the only way we'd get new stuff for a while.
Also, when it comes to them having a "style", just because you're poor doesn't mean you don't wanna look well put together.
Also it's a THRIFT STORE, not the Salvation army. Big difference.
Don't a lot of thrift stores act as the fundraising portion of a charity? This person is literally complaining that "the whites" are supporting charity.
So only POC's are poor is what you're saying?
But the environment
Maybe they could afford the bag and shoes because they’re frugal elsewhere. And what stops poorer people from getting there early and getting the good items?
Much like any business, thrift stores are for anyone willing to pay for their products.
Maybe they can afford the one or two expensive things because they saved for them... by shopping for everything else at thrift shops
Yes, but sometimes I like saving money.
Docs are over $100 here.
I am going to get another pair. Love them boots.
Gonna get some red laces too to own the libs.
Plot twist: Those Kanker bags and Doc Martens are actually very good aliexpress/wish knock offs.
Doc Martin? The British crime show? And what the hell is a kanken? I feel out of the loop on fashion....
So I have quite a few expensive (minimum $100) brands in my closest. 95% are from thrift stores I bought for 20 at the most and often that was a bag full. The other 5% was a combination of half gift half my money where I spent a year saving up to be able to have the money to afford the cheaper speciality stores.
Comfortable high heels I got for $2 actually started at $400 from the brand (I can't find it now but it was similar prices to sophia webster heels).
Just because someone owns expensive brands doesn't mean they bought it first hand. For all you know, they got it for $2.
Should have bought the clothes first, cunt.
TIL that a company barely in the same price range as Calvin Klein is apparent the clothing of the 1%
Oh boy they think $99 bags and $50 shoes are expensive? Wait till I introduce them to my friend and her $15,000 Hermes bag and $2500 Chanel heels lolol. They'd blow a gasket.
We do? Damn ... I must have missed that at Wypipo training.
Hm I’m a white and I’ve never done that or seen anyone do that.
I'm honestly getting so tired of these "white people be like..." memes, because most of them are too specific and pointed to be funny. They're just an excuse to dig on white people because it's trendy to be racist these days. Like... saying "shit" after yawning?? What tf is that?
That sounds almost as fun as being noisy at a movie theater.
Who even does that
i've never seen, or heard of a white person doing that at all.
Okay I admit that some of the white people ones crack me up but this isn’t something I’ve ever seen anyone do.
I do this
I’ve started responding to these with a “uh I guess we do that”
Is this a joke? The responses above agreeing to the main post makes this look like a shitpost.
I don't get it
Well that does sound very annoying
I yawn loud at home and in my car, but I don't say shit...I don't think lol
My step dad and brother does, but as for other white people, I don't really no that many who do that, but seriously, it's so oddly specific.
I have never done this, nor seen anyone do this, white or not.
I do that and Im black lol
For extra spice i yell Fuck tho. You ever had a yawn so good you just cursed? Sounds like this poster hasnt
I'm convinced these people venture outside once every ten months, study the nearest white person, and then come rushing back inside to make a report on their experience.
I've never done this, but I'm gonna start if it's a whypipo thing
I mean... I do this though
ok this one was actually pretty funny ahhadglkjasdga
Shouting? I can understand, like, saying it. But I’m pretty sure that’s just a human thing..
I mean.... I’ve seen it
This just seems like a joke tbh... I don't do this, but my parents do and I thought this was funny as hell
I mean idk if its exclusive to any race or culture, but I had to laugh. I do this basically every couple of hours at work.
I do enjoy that.
It sounds like we would
Black people love being loud in general. I mean if we're playing the stereotype game...
One of these is a childhood friend I've known for decades, and I've literally never seen him, or anyone we know, do this.
Every time I see these types of posts I always think to myself, how do you know that all of these old, Rich, powerful white families in the United States haven’t practiced witchcraft for centuries? And that’s why they are as rich and as powerful as they are.
Like, ancient spirits, the Elder Ones, the Soul of the World, they don’t give a shit about decolonization. Are you doing the incantations right? Did you mix the proper ingredients in the brew? Then your spell casting and witchcraft is golden. Run that Fortune 500 Arthur, exploit those minorities, make that money ho!
why's everything political and boring? even witchcraft? drat. :'(
If my soup isn't about Brazlians playing tubas, then I'm not Playstation 4.
But witchcraft is a gimmick to begin with?
Oh not the witches again
I don't even know what's happening here
Magic KKK would be a pretty awesome villain for an urban fantasy set in the 1920's.
Kkkrystal kkkluster kkkatastrophe! Alert the Grand Dragon Wizard! Only our superior white magic can beat off their inferior black magic.
Except hippies were chill AF, they need to take a take tip from them and calm their tits.
Just stride in confidently with a "sup fuckers"
"Guys" has been an acceptable gender-neutral term for decades, even though it began predominantly masculine. Jokes about calling girls guys are DECADES old.
What, are we going to start giving all the Madisons and Leslies and Alexs shit for having names that are traditionally masculine?
This is funny because most women I know actually will refer to a group of their female friends as guys. It just sounds weird to say something like "lets go girls!" or "lets go women!" when you are all going to a restaurant or something.
How do you wince at hearing someone say "guys?"
Jokes on them in Australia they just say "top of the morning ya mangy cunts". Maybe we should be more woke and do that.
I call everyone dude. Everyone knows I'm dead serious and I would never use it in a stoned freshman's tone "duuuude" but it's just what comes easier to me.
Only one time did people look at me weirded out, when I called a new colleague - that happens to be a lesbian - dude. I just looked at them and said "what? I call everyone dude..." She didn't mind, they didn't mind, we went on with our lives.
it was a subtle way...
Someone get xir a dictionary
Aw jeeze, nobody tell her about the entire french language. Par example... you would call your group of tall female friends mes grandes amies (feminine), but as soon as just one male enters the group, it becomes mes grands amis (masculine). Cause, yknow, masculine is also actually neutral.
If "guys" is a male-gendered word, then we need to start saying "dolls" to address women.
It is time to tell her to grow the fuck up and be happy the "guys" was intended to incluce everyone, including her.
Because that's how you english. Our teacher (I'm not a native speaker) explained it to us...
It was a subtle but undeniable way of calling out my word choice. being an insufferable bitch.
If "they" can become gender neutral and singular because it's been used that way for a long time albeit informally, then why can't "guys" be neutral when it has a much more accepted use as a gender neutral greeting?
Wow, it's almost like you have no jurisdiction to tell people what they can and can't say.
But one of my pronouns is "guys". ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)
George Orwell is twitching in his grave
I legit can not understand stuff like this like I've been saying "hey sisters" ironically for a couple weeks and none of the guys I work with ever go "HEY SIBLINGS"
We need another world war.
The term "guy" is gender fluid. Stop 👏 Assuming 👏the 👏 word's👏 gender 👏
It's just a colloquial thing. When I lived in New England, that's all anyone said. Down here in Florida we have y'all. Just depends on where you live. Sometimes a gendered word is easiest.
Nobody tell her about the romance languages.
I like to slide in on my socks wearing some sick ray-bans and say "WUSSUP DUDES AND DUDETTES!!!!". Then play air guitar as I duck walk to my cubicle.
What a bitch.
Hey guys, and also a whiny bitch.
Today in: "conversations no-one gives a shit about, unless you are oversensitive and like to make yourself a victim"
'' hey guys" is kinda like bitch.
I use it in a gender neutral way
Ladies, gentlemen, slagathor.
So there's no such thing as a colloquial term? I am a woman and I never felt like saying "you guys" was excluding me. That's just nitpicking at this point. They're really starting to go full on Tetsuo now, at first the movement was powerful and cool and now it's just a giant writhing mass of flesh.
I open up by feminizing the masculine word in addition to it.
"hey guys and guyettes!"
"hey bros and broskis!"
"hey dudes and dudettes!"
Then the more advanced forms:
"hey broskis and brosketteronies!"
"hey duderinoes and duderinettes!"
When all else fails, I have a bag of peeps on me at all times to smoke bomb with while yelling "HEY PEEPS!" at the top of my lungs. That confuses anyone who would have been offended and really makes the scrum meetings more exciting.
I call everyone, no matter the gender, "Dude". I keep telling them it's from habit, and I even call my girlfriend that.
Seriously, who cares? It's not even an issue. I guess if you really need to, add "and gals". I personally say "dudette" and it makes them laugh most of the time and we move on.
My wife and I call each other "bro." She started it.
Fuck this, everybody in the world is a dude or a guy. We all dudes here.
Then the next day i said "Mornin', Everyone!"
And everyone applauded.
The other colleague gave me a teary hug.My boss shook my hand and gave me a raise.
guy noun (1) \ˈgī \ Definition of guy (Entry 1 of 4)1a : MAN, FELLOWb : PERSON —used in plural to refer to the members of a group regardless of sexsaw her and the rest of the guys
Suck it up buttercup.
Tax payer funded article btw
I had a drum instructor in marching band who would always correct himself after he addressed the whole drumline as, "Guys." Had to tell him to stop worrying about it, its really not an issue.
Oh fine. We'll just start referring to all of you as peons instead - Management
It's wonderful to see our tax dollars are paying people to write bullshit like this.
At this rate, we should just escalate the insanity by T-Posing and greeting with an Afromerican accent, going "Ayo wassup, niggas?!"
Man, Squiggle Noodle News really puts out the hard hitting stories.
Just walk in and go, “s’up motherfuckers?” All genders can fuck their mothers
For once the south leads the way in progressive pronouns. "hey y'all" is indisputably gender neutral and saying anything else feels forced to me
Just do what we do down south and use y'all for everything
I don't mind this thinking. I try to break this habit, especially when greeting my (almost entirely female) coworkers. I mean, I don't think its a huge issue really but I have always thought its an odd phrase, even if it is super common. Based on the snippet that OP doesn't seem super offended, just musing over it.
So I'll give this post a pass, have a downvote.
I went the opposite route. When I get to work every morning, it's "what's up bitches?".
It was a subtle but undeniable way of calling out my word choice. use of virtue signaling by a pathetic busy body in pursuit of that sweet rush of social righteousness.
Just say y'all.
I don't see the problem with this. It isn't hard to not call a woman a guy in a formal work setting.
In Spanish it is part of the language as well. If there are a group of guys they are addressed as chicos or ellos. But if it is only girls, then it is chicas or ellas. But if you just add one guy to the group it reverts back to chicos and ellos.
And that sticks in some feminists craws a bit.
Australia has become so far left, I can't stand it.
Policing the language is progressive
It's already unacceptable in food service.
Well, not really unacceptable, but you save yourself some trouble by using "folks" instead.
Then why don't you just say "Morning"? It's even shorter.
Tell that to SMG4' s Steve
Everytime he appears, he says HI GUYS!
I live in Southern California, everyone is dude guy or man idc
As a teacher we recently have to be wary of which terms to address groups of students.
I maintain that guys is not a gender specific term.
I’d say “what’s up dudes” if I wouldn’t get laughed out the room
the only acceptable greeting is "hey gamers"
Wait until she says something. Then say “Not one time whenever I said hi guys was I saying it to you.”
At my last job we had a new hire come in that was a woman. First day she decides to tell us why saying "Guys" in situations was bad and that she won't respond to it and will even go as far to correct you loudly.
Our department had 6 people it in, all working on close proximity... and all guys other than her. She lasted 3 weeks before she got hit by a car while cycling in the middle of the road going to work.
Last i heard she is trying to sue the car that hit her.
“Hey gamers” is the only acceptable greeting
Just say y'all
Here's why: Because in many parts of the country "guys" is a gender neutral term applied to any grouping of individuals regardless of their gender makeup.
Pretty soon we won’t be able to say “person”.
I used to use "people" until I got yelled at being told it was rude and I was supposed to use "guys" regardless of gender.
I call everyone “dude”. Coworkers, friends, parents, my dog, my fiancée, my computer, the guy making my latte... Problem solved.
I sometimed use guys to address groups that are only women.
guys and dude are gender neutral and I'll fight anyone who tells me otherwise
I notknow that word. It isn't in the Newspeak version 7. Unexist words make me doubleplus unbellyfeel.
I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes Hey!
before shooting me a wry smile.
Is this a JoJo reference?
Lol this is the Merry Christmas vs happy holidays argument with different words. Am I right everyone?
Guys, bros, homies, dudes. I didn’t realize I had so much leeway in California. What matters is that they’re all terms of endearment and used to address groups. It’s not so much what you say, it’s how you say it.
If people have a problem with me saying “guys” or “dude” I just quote Ed from Good Burger“I’m a dude, he’s a dude, she’s a dude, we’re all dudes!”
what if we switch to 'morning, assholes!' is that gender neutral enough?
If I can’t call a girl “dude”, I do not associate. Not about gender but about not having a stick up their butt.
"Well if it ain't another bright, sunny day with you fine chucklefucks. Who do I have to blow to get a better gig?"
Naaaaah, too many syllables.
Oh, also, Broadway says go fuck yourself with this all-female number titled "Omigod you guys". But thanks for playing.
How bout just don’t say good morning at all lol I’m not a morning person
This like this make me think “oh shut the fuck up”
As a woman I'm pissed you'd think I'd be upset by something so commonly understood and trivial. We're not babies, we get that you're refering to a varied group you harpy-brained fuckweasel. Get over it
Ah ... our 'National Broadcaster' in Australia. Otherwise known as Regressive TV.
I seriously wonder if there is anyone working at the ABC who isn't a snowflake these days.
Maybe we really are getting closer to creating "newspeak" just like in the novel "1984"
Is there anything wrong with having a think piece on the topic? I don't think so...
I had a teacher in high school who made a point of saying "y'all" instead.
I attended a lecture by a visiting linguistics professor and he made some mention about how he didn’t want to address the room as “you guys” because it was sexist so he was just gonna day “you folks” or “you all” instead. Someone raises her hand and says, “Why don’t you just say y’all?” and this dude tells her, “No, that would be racist of me because it’s cultural appropriation of African American vernacular English.” This is at a university in the Deep South and “y’all” has been a word in everyone’s vocabulary since they learned how to talk. When I tell you the whole room collectively groaned...
slap that intern for speaking above her station
How incredibly coddled and sheltered do you have to be to act like this language is "harmful?"
I frequently use "fellas" to refer to my coworkers. Like "hey, good work, fellas," even though I'm often the only guy there. Literally nobody cares, and I've never worked with anyone who has
I want to die
lucky me. everyone who gets to work earlier than me is female, so i get to say "mornin' ladies"
tho im sure that also makes me a Bigot somehow
GREETINGS FELLOW HUMANOIDS
Sometimes when I arrive at a meeting with my male colleagues I say "hello ladies". I guess I need re-education too.
that's funny i always call the women at my works guys,
"everyone" excludes those with multiple personalities and is offensive.
your phone battery is giving me anxiety
They must really hate French, were you have to use the male plural (guys) to address any group that has a man in it
This obviously didn't happen in the midwest where I'm sure even our politicians refer to their constituents as "you guys."
I’ve always used it as a gender neutral way of addressing people
I use "y'all" .
This is pretty whatever.
Perks of living in the South is no one can call me out on gendered speech (not that I would care).
Don’t they do this in Spanish too? Ninos is both a group of boys or a group of children?
I'm from Texas so I just say "Morning y'all" and avoid this whole shit.
Daves, Debbies, Slagerthough
Because passive aggression and being petty is always the most effective way to solve workplace issues.
The irony. This is something which made my grandmother mad.
We stray from god further everyday, gender discussion really makes me want to scream into a pillow.
PS. There is only two genders.
Y'all is gender-neutral.
I love this - making more right wingers every day
Jesus Christ, no one tell them about all the other languages where the nouns are literally gendered.
This is where the American South had it right with using "Y'all"
Lmao charge ur phone
Just replace 'guys' with 'you people', there's no way that could cause offence
I'm ok with this as I've been always a fan of yelling "GREETINGS, CUNTS" at the top of my lungs.
Makes the blood flows and the hatred of your colleges towards you fuels them through the day's work.
Working as a caretaker of elders is fun.
This is why I use the gender-neutral, sup fuckers
Q: Why does everyone use "guys" to address mixed-gender groups?
A: "Guys/Guy" is gender neutral.
Next question, please.
I wish I wasn't as bothered by this as I am. In any LGBTQ-centric place frequented by mostly 20-somethings, this is pretty much the rule, and you get corrected if you accidentally say "guys". Like come on guys. I'm not saying that the transwoman over there is a guy. I'm not saying that men are the default. It's good to think about why you say the things you say, but critical theory has a place and time. If you spend your whole life in the critical theory mindspace, your time here is gonna suck
In Spanish we have gendered plurals so everyone translate as TODOS in case of only males, TODAS when referring a an all female group but if you are referring to a mixed group you should use the male form (TODOS). Just try to picture the clusterfuck feminist are trying to make our language... If you think Spanish is hard now, just wait a couple of years..
Guys Everyone, she realllly shouldn't learn french.
I work at an engineering firm, "hey guys" is perfect.
I don't trust anyone who would start shit over someone saying 'hey guys'
Like sure I get what they're saying, but at the same time, fuck right off, that is the most harmless shit ever.
I call everyone "Man" or "dude".
I like how they say "mixed gender" like this is a new concept or something.
it's short for "Guido" Fawkes anyway, complicating the issue further
Im ok with using “everyone” or whatever else sounds ok. It’s not a big deal
"Guys" is fine. "Everyone" is fine. No one is excluded in either case, unless they are just so sick on semantics they take it that way.
This is why I go with “whaddup y’all”. Then the only thing they can hate me for is my use of y’all.
This kills my soul.
That's why I like to say 'Waddup fam' in professional settings.
“Good morning my dudes!”
Best part about living in the south, we can always rely on “y’all” lol
Gender neutral af and works like a charm
It’s like these morons don’t understand what language is. EVERY LANGUAGE HAS A DOMINATE GENDER. GET OVER IT.
I've met these people at work before. I tell them that words like this are gender neutral and refer to groups of people and have been used as such for decades. No need to fix what isn't broke - don't we have work to do?
I'm covered - I'll just stick with my usual "Hey assholes"
Guys has been an acceptable gender neutral term since forever. It's like dude. I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes.
I use the gender neutral "whats popping gamers" instead
One thing the southeast region of the United States got right was introducing "y'all" as a gender neutral plural pronoun.
When there are NPCs in a mixed social group I'll usually hit everyone with a "sup dudes"
When I was doing my Teaching internship, my University assessor dinged me for addressing the class as “Guys”, “Folks” and even “Y’all”.
Apparently she didn’t think it was possible to be gender inclusive by saying anything but “Boys and Girls”, or “Ladies and Gentleman”.
No room for colloquialisms :(
"a colleague, who had recently joined my team"
Of course. That's the end of that team.
I’m an academic administrator at the collegiate level and the new trend is to put “your pronouns” (He/Him/His) in your email signature...not once have I had a moment of “oh, glad I had this info or I wouldn’t have known that”. Just such bullshit. The vast majority identify as binary and we do this for a percentage of a percentage.
Even in languages like Spanish it is always going to the masculine with mixed gender. It's the language. (Some people think that whole languages can be stupid)
If you're Irish, 'lads' is also a gender neutral term
Hello fellow humans
My taxes pay for this horse shit
before shooting me a wry smile
yeah, passive aggressiveness is not an effective way to make friends
Shit, I’ll call a group of women “guys” and female friends “dude”. Who really gives a shit?
if "they" can be a singular pronoun then motherfucking "guys" can be gender neutral. god damn shitpissy tittyfucks.
its like saying "hola chicos" in spanish.. chico is a boy, but chicos can mean "guys" and encompasses everyone
Really off topic but I just want to know what does this sub have to do with r/offmychest? I got banned from it sometime ago.
I genuinely think at this point people are literally desperate to come up with ANYTHING to write an article about. Like they don’t want to do any actual journalism and investigate something real that’s happening so they’ll manufacture something deadset stupid click bait
But I work with literally nothing but guys...
Because we speak a Latin based language, where mixed groups default to male pronouns.
Similar issue in Australia a few years back, bit of media debate about not using the term “mate” in the office
The only thing that kinda bothers me is being addressed with dude, but guys is a bit over the top
So guys, we did it
I literally say Boys as a gender neutral term.
THE SOUTH SHALL RISE!!!
"HOWDY Y'ALL! HOW'RE Y'ALL DOIN?"
As long as there are 2 people, I have no problem using guys. I don't care if it's 2 dudes, 2 girls, or 1 chick and 1 dude.
Welcome to the corporate world where people use ‘folks’ instead. It drives me insane.
'She winced in pain, falling to the ground in the presence of the forbidden word. She wanted to scream but the sounds wouldn't leave her mouth, because she didn't want to offend mute people"
This is why the second amendment exists
"Guys" is sexist
"Y'all' is apparently racist now.
I'll just start using the Pennsyltuckian "you'ns"...until the SJWs find a way to be triggered by that
Women are supposed to be handsome too. Fuck off
Oh the humanity 😨
yeah i got this notification from the FUCKING NEWS APP
“Guys” is linguistically considered to be a gender-neutral Northeastern US colloquialism. It’s totally fine to use considering its part of a regional dialect and anyone who has an issue with it can fuck off.
I'm Dr. Nick!
"Morning guys.... And annoying bitch."

GFM acquired this company in April of this year.
When was the Tumblr post made?
In 2020? That's the year of the next US Presidential election.
I think most of the regressives are going to be busy protesting other stuff 24/7 that year.
Well they aren't wrong about them cracker feminists.
I’m pretty sure all women can vote.
