7 Times When “Boys Will Be Boys” Is Not A Good Enough Excuse

There are a lot of crappy phrases out there that need to be played out, but one that really grinds my gears is “boys will be boys.”

Boys beating each other up  on the playground. Oh, boys will be boys.

Boys shoveling food down their throats like vultures. Oh, boys will be boys.

Boys taking advantage of scantily clad girls at parties. Oh, boys will be boys.

Wait…that last bit sounds really wrong, doesn’t it? But this mantra is definitely maintained no matter how vile a guy’s actions are. The idea that boys just emerge out of the womb to be violent, insensitive jerks is ridiculous, but what’s more ridiculous are the excuses made for their actions at the expense of girls and women.

This excuse is always awful, but it’s especially bad in seven of the following scenarios. Let me know if you agree!

 

 

What other times have you heard “boys will be boys” as an excuse? Do you think some behavior is really just attributed to guys being guys? Tell us in the comments?

    Actually, monogamy being more difficult for boys is a real thing. It’s science. I just thought I should point that out. They are genetically programmed to make babies. It sounds weird but it’s true.

    That being said, NO, BIOLOGY IS STILL NOT EXCUSE FOR THEM TO CHEAT ON YOU. Duh.
