Is "you all" acceptable in formal writing?
I think that in formal writing, there is almost always going to be a better way to say it. What that better way is will vary, depending on context. I say that as a northwesterner who has no accent to speak of and who has only use y'all a handful of times. Nobody says it here, except southern transplants.
When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?
