Boys and Girls or Men and Women...
I don't mind if someone calls me a boy or a man. I consider myself a man at 23 years old but if someone called me a boy I wouldn't get offended by it or go crazy about it. Some people might not like it if you called them a boy or a girl, when they would rather be called a man or a woman but I'm not one of them. I think it depends on the person or the setting. I think a lot of us say it either way. I have said before to my wife: "I'm going to hang out with my boys". Even though all of them would be considered men since most of my friends are 21 years old and older. It's just a saying. I don't think there is anything wrong with this. It does sound weird if I said: "I'm going to hang out with my men". In my opinion, that could make some people think that I am gay if I said that. Once again, we say boys and girls or men and women when it seems to sound more comfortable for us or the situation. We say men or women usually in respect to people.
