Cedar: Thank you, thank you! You’re the best crowd I ever had! I’m not just saying that!

Crowd: enthusiastic WOOOOOO

Cedar: Okay, okay, how about if we slow it down and — . . . and thank the people who make all this possible!

Everyone, this is a good friend of mine, who’s helping me get the hang of my new magical-girl powers . . . Say hi to Holly!

Crowd: HI, HOLLY!

I love how “magical girl” is a gender inclusive term despite having a gendered word in it. It reminds me a lot of how, in the circles I run in, at least, the word himbo also applies to naive hunky women.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’ll start calling groups of men “you gals” a thousand years before I’ll say “y’all.”

But on the other end of the scale, I think “House Spouse” is a better option than “House Wife/Husband”, purely because it rhymes.

Even though, for some reason, calling guys gals often works better than ditching gendered words, sometimes the non-gendered version just works.

In reality, I’ve taken on the habit of referring to mixed groups as “you folks.” (Which I insist on spelling with a K.) Sure, it sounds a little Southern, but I definitely find it preferable to “y’all.”


Sounding Southern is… fine? Also, what’s wrong with “y’all”? (No shade if it’s a personal preference, you just seem rather adamant about it.)

Sorry, I don’t mean to imply there’s anything wrong with sounding Southern, only I don’t happen to be.

I’m not Southern either, but I get the sense that “y’all” is now also a queer thing, entirely because “you guys” is so divisive.
(The funny part is, as someone whose gender leans more and more masculine, I still hate being part of a “you guys.”)
