Is it permissible to say “you guys” or does political correctness require “you all” because otherwise women would be excluded? Does this rule apply even during casual encounters say at a bar or a party? It depends on whether the speaker is being judged by the politically correct police.
In an excellent New York Times CO-OP Piece , writer, Lionel Shriver questions the new millennials and their over-bearing left rhetoric. He surmises, “Among millennials and those coming of age behind them, the race is on to see who can be more righteous and aggrieved — who can replace the boring old civil rights generation with a spikier brand.”
Shriver concludes by saying, “Protecting freedom of speech involves protecting the voices of people with whom you may violently disagree. In my youth, liberals would defend the right of neo-Nazis to march down Main Street. I cannot imagine anyone on the left making that case today.”
