    Would you be willing to use "person" instead of "guy" in universal cases like this?

    Didn't see that one coming

    As an aside. Why don't we collectively push for the word "guy" to be used as gender-neutral term (*in the way you would often see a person - of any gender - walk in to a cafe where their friends - of any gender - are eating, and say, "Hi guys!") instead of forcing people to integrate into a different paradigm to suit your opinion?

    Personally, I have no problems with gender neutral terms. But forcing integration isn't the way to go IMO. Changing the term is a far more frictionless and organic way to go about language adoption.
