Guys isn’t gender neutral it’s gender absorptive. It’s used the same way it became standard over the last few hundred years to use he as a general third person singular pronoun (before that they was acceptable). Just because some women are OK with it doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t be annoyed by it. If your students will call a specific, individual woman a guy then I guess I’m wrong and it’s honestly becoming gender neutral. But I never hear anyone doing that.
