Don't think that even that would pass these days. "Don't use my DNA to identify how I feel!"I had a female CFO years ago who "corrected" me for using the term "you guys" when talking to women...and you know, I have 5 sisters. From that moment on, when she was around, I said "...you persons of the female ge
netic makeup". I don't have to tell you that I never get Christmas cards from her, right?
we used to be called he and she and boys and girls forever too and look where that is getting us? Pick a name so we know what to call them. Not everything has a sinister meaning. I've heard them both called mens and women's hockey team and when it's just Badger Hockey it could be either.
not really speaking to you guys, but society in its quest to be something I guess is losing it's damn mind.
I think for the most part the 2 Hockey Programs have had to be referenced with some kind of identifier. After all, their seasons run concurrently and they both are in the news a lot. Same with the Basketball programs, but the women's B-Ball team has stunk for years, so really not in the news much at all. Would be very confusing if someone just said "The Badger Hockey Team won last night." I don't see how referencing whether it was the Men's or Women's team should really ruffle anyone's feathers, but I can imagine there will always be some that think its outdated and possibly sexist.
I still refer to a group of people as "you guys", even if there are women in it. Just shorter and warmer (in my opinion) to say that VS "OK, you guys and gals...." and I have a feeling someone might be ticked off at the use of "gals". I never was very good with pronouns in school, so I have never lost sleep when someone else isn't either.
I thought this was a dedicated Brewer forumIs there a dedicated Brews forum out there on the interwebs? If not, I'd like to see how we can push this forum to get more Brew fans posting in it. I know FB already has a crap ton of crappy groups but forums are #1 place to go for alot of other non Facebook fans. Love to get this from and the Bucks forums more activity.

I truly apologize for using a cliche in my post setting off this discussion. Live and learn I guess. I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other -- always going forward and building one brick at a time.Well to be clear, there are 26 players on the roster, so technically, they are firing on all 26. So 3 Suburban's and a Tata Nano.
