Used in this example, gender specifics isn't really of importance. Whats important is em sume mighty fine biscuts.

Oh, I get it.

Like:

"Me and Billy Bob drove down to the lake to catch us some m'ere catfish. We got us enough for four pies. And, Billy Bob pulled up an Evinrude."

Bobby Sue is a lady. Sue being the signifier. Y'all is used for a lot, but, if you're going to use it for another group, it's usually made in to a them. For instance. Is that there catfish. You think they'll see me steal them? Y'all want me too? That'll teach em.

I'm part of the sophisticated Redneck movement. We speak intelligibly with the exception of Y'all and ain't. I love those to words to much.

I think "y'all" and "ain't" are unofficially part of the English language.

After all, they both have a recognized spelling and a well defined meaning, and that's really what's most important in legitimacy as a recognized part of the English language.

Both are kinda like the word "gator". Everyone knows what the word means, but everyone also recognizes it to be a short form for the proper word "alligator". It's he same with "y'all" and "ain't". Prolly all these words will eventually get into the dictionary along with , lol, stfu and wtf?.

Y'all and ain't are real words. My spell check thins so. LOL stfu wft these will be more difficult to legitimize. I'm all for it though. Having new scrabble words is great.
