12. Yeah boy...
as long as you use girl and boy and not girl and man, are consistent, then you are at least being intellectually honest in your verbage.

However, having been to school with feminists who would scoff and get mad if I were to hold a door for them, I can tell you that you are better off changing your ways old dog. :P

Women and men= adults
boys and girls= children

at what age? age of majority is the rule of thumb i try to follow, a boy is a boy until he's 18 and then he's a man. a girl is a girl until she is 18 and a woman.
