The War Against Girls

The next time someone tells me that it's okay to say "you guys" when you are speaking of a group that includes girls....the next time that someone complains when I use the word "frosh" when speaking of 9th graders....or suggests that they don't understand what I mean when I use the phrase "under-class members" when I am speaking of what was traditionally called "under classmen"...or suggests in some other subtle way that I'm just being overly sensitive when I talk about gender inclusion,  I am going to direct them to go and watch "It's a Girl" or read about it here.

There are 200 million missing little girls in this world, victims of infanticide driven by a patriarchal worldview.

And that is not okay.
