It is a commonplace here in Green Bay for young women to call each other "you
guys," as in "You guys going to the Rat?" (the Rathskellar), both on the
university campus and in the public schools. My daughter attended St. Joseph's
Academy, an all-girls Catholic school, and this was very common in that context
as well (1985-1989). They never said "you girls" or "you gals" or "you women."
In addition, my daughter sometimes says "you guys" when talking to me and my
wife, as in "When are you guys leaving for David's graduation?" (although she
usually says "you" instead).
