"There is no female equivalent of guy. This comes up all the time. I’ll frequently say “you guys” as a gender neutral (even though it really isn’t). Ladies is the corresponding term for gentlemen. It’s more formal. But no one says “I’m a Product Gentleman.”
Women is the corresponding term for men. It’s pretty neutral. No one says “I’m a Product Man.” There is no female casual term. I would never say “I am a Product Chick” (ew) or “I am a Product Dudette” (ick). You place me in an awkward place when you say “I’m a Product Guy.” It makes me feel far too serious when I say “I’m a Product Manager,” even though that’s just my job title. It makes me sound formal because of the contrast, even though I’m not a formal person."
This. I would also add that it’s infuriating when startups try to be casual and post on their jobs site that they’re in search of a “Product Guy” - do they not realize that they’re alienating potentially awesome Product Gals?
