What is it about some women that they are so sensitive to the myriad of words used to describe a collection of any gender, in this case girls?
Elizabeth Evans was, through her political correctness ("I know he meant well," AFN, Nov. 3), able to ruin a morning for a gentleman that was almost certainly, even by her own admission, just trying to be nice and bring some pleasantries into daily life. I certainly hope it made her feel better and that her day went better after she was successfully able to establish that she was a grown woman. I suspect she may have established in that gentleman's mind that she was also something else (a term often associated with female dogs).
I suspect that gentleman and his buddies, wherever they gather, a favorite restaurant, pub or golf course , would take no offense if a waitress said, "Good morning boys!"
Life is hectic enough without having to crush the pleasantries out of it with someone's idea of political correctness.
