Be Sure Not to Say ‘You Guys’ at UW River Falls

Be Sure Not to Say ‘You Guys’ at UW River Falls

Words are mean…

UW River Falls has a new ‘Check Yourself’ campaign. Doesn’t that sound fun?

PJ Media reports:

College Declares ‘You Guys’ To Be Offensive

What are they putting in the water in the University of Wisconsin system? On the heels of UW-Madison students trying to get a conservative student organization declared a “hate group,” we have the “Check Yourself Educational Campaign” at UW-River Falls.

Yes, that’s what it’s called. And it’s here to prevent your children from saying offensive things such as … “you guys”:

You Guys
Why not: Erases the identities of those who are in the room. Generalizing a group of people to be masculine.

Folks: if you feel your identity being “erased” from hearing “you guys,” thats a “you” problem. No one else’s.

“Folks: if you feel your identity being “erased” from hearing “you guys,” thats a “you” problem. No one else’s.”

Absolutely! Well said.

As a Southern boy, I’m happy to inform you that y’all is perfectly acceptable, and (apparently) gender neutral.

Of course, true Southerners wouldn’t be offended by “you guys,” or even “youse guys,” and we do know the difference between males and females, even if the left do not.
