women, girls, gals and such.
Kathie Heijtink has this to say about how we refer to ourselves, and how there really isn't a great parallel to the word "guys" that guys get to use to say the were hanging out with the guys, so to speak. She examines the PC-ness of "girl," and takes it from there into our perceived and expressed notions of race, ethnicity, belonging, exclusion, and the like. Nice.
