Police Tell Penniless French Backpacker Chick to Stop Begging in the Streets of Kampot

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Can't call them chicks. Can't call them girls. Can't call them ma'am because it might make them feel old. Can't call them darling or you might catch a sexual harassment charge. What the fuck is going on? What should I say to be politically correct in 2017?
Sheila - you call one of 'em Sheila. Example - Oi, sheila, you wanna beer?
Plural form, Sheilas. Example - Oi, youse sheilas wanna beer?

Although there's a need for disambiguity in that last example as it's unclear whether you're offering a collective of sheilas one beer for the group, or one beer each. It might just be easier to stick with a single goonie or two on this Hills for a herd of sheilas.
