This is really cool. One of the slack groups I'm part of has a bot that will reply with 'Do you mean gals?' every time someone sent a message that said 'hey guys'. It's actually really helped me stop applying a gender when I address a group of people IRL.

What an awesome bot, love it! It can really hard to be cognizant of it. Nowadays I spend most of my conversational time speaking in Hebrew, where every noun is gendered, and as a result, it's actually made me more aware of it in English where you don't have every noun defined by a gender.
