An on-the-spot summary of ways to model girl/boy, woman/man, some of which have been stated in the thread, and not all of which are necessarily viable:
- as a state of a person
- as temporal stages of a human being (or person)
- as temporal stages of the life of a human being
- as a property of a human being
- as roles played by a human being in some early stages of their life. The roles are automatically realized once the person reaches, say, a certain age or once certain biological or psychological changes occur.
A boy/girl as a person in early stages of their life. The boundaries of these stages can be specified by social convention, e.g., adulthood as 17,18 in certain countries, etc., or based on certain biophysiological or psychological changes or markers.
Aside from that, and on this statement made: "I don't disagree that Person is rigid, while Boy and Man are not. [Of course, the Supreme Court can decide that various entities are Persons or not, which means that Person is not rigid. 8)# ]"
Speaking from a philosophical perspective, IF Person (a class that has as instances, you and me, etc.) is not rigid, it is certainly not so because of the Supreme Court.
WRT Person being an endurant/continuant or perdurant/occurrent, cases can be made for either.

You should have a look at Paul Builelaar et al's work on LEMON: e.g., http://lexinfo.net/lemon-cookbook.pdf. Builds on earlier work on LMF, etc.
