Think Literal - You is YOU
When trying to speak English, try to think literally, as in a physics sense. While this may not seem very clear at first, what is meant by this, is just try to say what something is or what it might be doing.
For example, in English there is only ONE form for the word you, instead of several different variants like those which exist in other languages. Since there really is only one "you" in this world, English uses it. It's that simple.
In English, "you" remains "you" -- no matter what. It doesn't matter whether I am addressing "you" in the first person, second person, third person, past tense; present tense, future tense, or anything else. In English, "you" remains "you" -- just like "you" remain "you" in the real world. Anything else, is just extra work. In English, none of this is necessary.
Cousins vs. Cousins
In Czech, there are two words for the word cousin. In English, there's only one: cousin. Unlike Czech, in English, it is irrelevant if your cousin is a man or a woman, the person is still your cousin. Just as in real life.
"You" are "you" -- no one else is ever going to be "you" regardless of what form they speak to you in.
In this same way, your cousins are your cousins. Whether they're males or females is simply extra info which doesn't change the fact that they're your cousins.
