WATCH: The Word ‘GUYS’ Has Now Been CANCELED By The Wokescolds — No, This ISN’T Satire

Written by K. Walker on September 10, 2019

Feminists have a BIG problem with the word “guys.”

The word “guys” has been used for my entire lifetime (and long before) as a gender-neutral term is no longer acceptable because has been deemed offensive by the Fainting Couch Feminists™ on the left.

In a video from NowThis one of their producers, self-proclaimed feminist, Foluké Tuakli, is taking exception to the word “guys” as it is a “male default term” that “should not be normalized as an all-encompassing phrase” because of the “cognitive impact on women as well as gender-non-conforming folks.” (That should have been “folx” by the way. Obviously these haters are just not woke enough to use the correct terminology that smashes heteronormativity.)

She claims that using the word “guys” only acknowledges the “male-identifying” individuals present. Tuakli then sufficiently scolds you as she digs in deep into the history of the word “guys” and explains how it is tied to Guy Fawkes of the famous Gunpowder Plot from 1605.

Here’s a refresher from V For Vendetta:

She then explains that over the next 414 years, the word has morphed into something that “some say” is a gender-neutral word. (Really? Who thinks it’s not used in a gender-neutral way?)

Looks like we’re going back to Elizabethan English, everyone!

Aaaand we’re right back to V For Vendetta.

Apparently, the changing of language is WRONG and BAD because it erases the historical meaning of the word and, in a way “reinforces the gender hierarchy today.”

Ah, yes. The big boogeyman of the feminist cause — The Patriarchy. Feminists will not rest until the Patriarchy is smashed and a Matriarchy replaces it. Equality is no longer the goal.

Tuakli is clear on this, though. She says that feminists have bigger fish to fry than just canceling the word “guys” they’ve got to fight for dismembering unborn children “reproductive rights,” fighting the (imaginary) problem of rape culture, LGBTQ+ rights, and the — in their own words — “general reprogramming of people’s minds” regarding the valuation of women in society.

Of course, because women are treated so badly in America that they’re graduating from colleges at a higher rate and are being paid more than men of comparable age. 

If your vocabulary is so sufficiently stunted that you’re not sure what to say instead of “guys” Tuakli then gives you some really helpful examples.

Watch this crapshow:

Geez, does this mean that the LGBTQ+ needs to drop the word “gay” because if you “dig deep” and look into the historical meaning, the word was defined as “happy” or “keenly alive” and had nothing to do with alternative sexual practices whatsoever?

My favorite part of Tuakli’s video is the point where she says, “But when you stop valuing the personhood and visibility of individuals, you make it easier to dehumanize them on a macro scale, minimizing his, her, its, their right to respect and equality.”

How is referring to someone as “it” not dehumanizing?

Also, is it awkward to ask about the macro dehumanization of unborn babies in opposition to biological reality?

I just can’t understand these people.

As a woman, I find these lecturing feminists really, really off-putting. They are insufferable, overbearing termagants that will not stop until you agree with every single point that they have — or else.

But hey, what should I expect?

Wokescolds gonna Wokescold.

She was sufficiently mocked on Twitter for her utter nonsense.

From the “Life comes at you fast” files, it seems that Foluké Tuakli had used the objectionable word on Twitter AND DIDN’T DELETE IT!

Oh, the humanity!

The most hilarious response was from #BasedMom herself:

This seems like the perfect moment for this universally relevant question posed by Pat Sajak:
