Ever hear anyone in Berkeley use the word gal? I don’t either -- thankfully. Such an archaic term. Step outside the city limits and you’ll hear someone say something like” there’s this gal at work who....” Females are generally women or girls in Berkeley. Also those women and girls in Berkeley are gnerally make up free. Oh maybe a little but its not caked on. There's a lot wrong with Berkeley but not the way we refer to our women folk nor the way they dress.
