Saying 'Hey, guys' is NOT okay: Liberal word-police claim 'male default' terms ignore women, 'gender non-conforming folks'

Such offensive terms should NOT be 'normalized'

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere discussed a recent video in which a socially-woke narrator explains why using "male default terms," such as "guys," is offensive, and should certainly "not be normalized as an all-encompassing phrase."

In the video, released Monday by liberal media outlet NowThis News, producer Foluké Tuakli claims that the term "guys" ignores the "cognitive impact on women, as well as gender non-conforming folks."

Glenn played a short clip from the video in which Tuakli says:

'Guys' is a simple term. It could mean 'boys,' or if you're modern, hip, it means 'people.' At first glance, 'guys' seems inviting, friendly, maybe warm, even comedic at times. But it, like many male default terms, should not be normalized as an all-encompassing phrase -- innocent as it may seem.

While we may understand the word means no real harm, with a deeper look, you'll understand that we've been ignoring the cognitive impact on women, as well as gender non-conforming folks....

Glenn offered his theory as to why so many people are going out of their way to find a reason to be offended.

"There are those people that are really triggered, but then there are the do-gooders," he said. "They really are trying to do good because nothing in their life has meaning. There is no way to do real good, because everything is bad except for this woke culture."
