Serious question, i've been wondering this for a while, in all honesty would you class yourself a boy or a man?
And i'm not talking about physically, like puberty, and ignoring whatever law of the land says a certain age.

So boys and men (and some of the ladies) of the pit, what would you say in honesty, defines a boy from a man?

Man: A mature male past the age of 18.
Boy: Immature male.

Just being mature, wise or old.

A 60 year old immature fool is considered a man
Mature 16 year old's you COULD consider a man
Wisdom makes you a man

I was going to say something related to puberty, which I think defines that, but you took that away. (Your cognitive development is tied to puberty. My saying was going to be when your brain has [for the most part] fully developed.)

What will I change it to? Being responsible and such. If you take credit that is yours and take blame that is yours, you are a man to me. This could mean that you are a five year old man or a twenty-five year old boy or even that you used to be a man, but you are no longer one.

You know it's odd... Most people say when you lose your virginity you're a man or when you're 18 you're a man... I've done both of those and I still consider myself a boy. There's just so much I haven't learned yet that I can't consider myself fully grown.

This... /thread... or how ever you want to put it

also i think possessing the wisdom to give a valid answer like that proves being a man

A man is a male that is able to see, understand, accept, and work to better the world BEYOND himself.

A boy is someone who still believes they're the first and foremost thing, rarely seeing beyond their own wants and needs.

There's no standard measurement, only you can know for yourself. It's not just some title someone else can give you, or that you can give yourself. So many people have different views on what the phrase "being a man" actually means. Find your own definition.

I have to disagree to this as well.

If that was the case, I was never a boy.

How well you can carve meat. Seriously, I would think that a man would be the time at which you can appreciate your own weaknesses and strengths, not be made to feel crap about the former, or become overly cocky about the latter. Hence why I think there are so few REAL men out there. The ability to chop wood well, ride a horse, and be chivalrous in general, not just with pretty women, too, would be a bonus.

So we've got the ideal man down as a skilled meat carver who can take responsibility for their actions, handle a credit card bill whilst fighting off the bears trying to increase his interest rates and could also lead some of his friends in the battle against said bears but would have the common sense not to get them killed as well as the wisdom to know when to withdraw.

As well as having a penis like a fire hydrant.
