You know the phrases. You know the situations. You’ve heard them a (proverbially) million times. What is it? It is “Hi Guys” or “Guys, Ready to go?” or “What do you Guys think”, etc.
Why do some always call a group of children or adults that includes females “Guys” or call adult females “Guys” or “Girls”? Here are a couple of alternatives:
“You all ready to go?”
“What do you think?”
“Ladies and gentlemen”
“Gals and guys”
“Girls and boys” (if you feel you must call a group of adults girls or boys)
And for the singular, non-male groups, try these
Can you think of others or do you use other terminology?
Many marches are being planned for January 20, 2018. Find a march near you:
R. Moore says the last time America was great was during the era of slavery. What a disgusting sentiment. That’s one of many of his disturbing beliefs, which include his God’s laws outweigh our country’s laws, Islam is a “false religion”, homosexual conduct should be illegal, gay people shouldn’t be allowed to have children, Barack Obama was not born in the United States, and America promotes a lot of bad things.
If those alone don’t make you cringe and run to vote for someone else for Senator, on an equally disturbing level is our “president” telling Alabama voters to elect the former judge, who was removed from the bench twice for violating laws, because he wants a Republican in that seat. TRump doesn’t care about the beliefs or actions of Moore, only what he thinks Moore will do for him and in the process working to get Moore elected has condoned Moore’s beliefs and behavior and spurred on and emboldened like minded people.
How about we try Making America Great Again by putting our country over party and not electing an alleged pedophile and slavery era mindset to the United States Senate where he would have a say in what happens to religion in our country, the environment, healthcare, global relations, and children, women, and every other American.
Many current republican-leaning groups are spouting nonsense about the Democratic candidate Doug Jones. He is a proponent of the 2nd Amendment rights, has prosecuted KKK members, says he supports women’s right to healthcare, and other issues that are good for our country. He is more middle of the road and would be a much better Senator for ALL AMERICANS than his opposition.
The seat will be up for election in 2020. If Alabama really, really wants a Republican in that seat, four years is not long to wait for a BETTER candidate than Moore ever will be and Jones will be okay in the meantime.
We must start now to reclaim the name of our Beloved Isis, Goddess of All. Recite Her name. Chant Her name. Pray to Her to make Her presence known once again and reclaim Her name from terrorist thugs. American media refuse to say ISIL or any other name for them except Isis. Now is the time to inundate them with messages. Isis is ours, the Goddess we love; we will no longer allow you to demean Her name.
*Egyptian Prayer to Isis*
It was the goddess who protected the god,
who searched for him without tiring,
who traveled the world lamenting,
who did not rest until she found him,
who made shade for him with her bright wings,
who breathed life back into him,
who revived his passion, who received his seed,
who bore the child, who raised the child,
THE GODDESS, ALONE, DID THIS*
