It’s contextual Gmorning party people These mofos gonna work with these mofos right here The rest of you beautiful bastards can take off Bye-bye dudes

As an elder millenial/xennial and being from the West Coast (California) "you guys" and "dude" are genderless catchall terms, tho Gen Z and people from other places may interpret these terms differently.
