yes, this is an excellent subthread that Paul introduced,Pejorative uses, but also, we have 'boys will be boys', which is maybe perjorative but I think applies more to men than boys, and 'boy oh boy", and the Irish 'Boy-o', and the English 'Old Boy,' which would be an oxymoron for boy as a state of a person, and "atta boy," 'boys night out', and 'how can I tell if my cat is a boy or a girl?' and someboyd said here that men were adult males, leaving out one of the many dimensions of context that Hans and others keep reminding us of, namely that there are also adult male lions and ginko trees, and 'good boy', and ....
Up till now, I thought a boy was anything I might want to associate with the things that up till then I thought of as a boy or boyish.
