Ask Polly: Why Are the Guys I Date So Boring?
Hope H. That is, does valorizing masculinity in women liberate women? Or would it be better to try to elevate femininity to match our admiration of masculinity? And is it possible to liberate the word from its patriarchal trappings? I don't know how it may work with everyone else, but I usually use the term dude and guys as gender neutral. Dudette and gals just sounds weird to me and using the term people doesn't give my speech the causal note i usually go for. Heck, I'd like the sharp biarny between men are supposed to be masculine and women are supposed to be feminine. As a genderqueer person, I tend to see things from a nonbinary perspective more than others. On the one hand, yes, society is horribly androcentric.
At present we have a smoking hot English lesson for you. We understand so as to sex is a delicate topic designed for many people, and this article is meant to be more of a resource rather than an English class. Have sex is by far the most common and appropriate term en route for use. Sleep with is a actual appropriate term because it is accordingly ambiguous.

Matthew J. Maladay is a journalist who writes excellent language pieces for Account magazine. My favorite is the individual on Pennsylvaniaof course! He recently contacted me about the term bro. Bro is having its moment apparently, after that people have increasingly asked me a propos it over the years in allusion to dude. Matthew's post is at this juncture. Reading over it I thought it sounded kind of like a blog post itself. But I'm curious a propos the path it has taken, after that if you think there's anything uniquely interesting about it.
