You know that old excuse. You’ve heard it a million times, usually to dismiss or disregard awful behavior by males.
It’s pretty tired and it’s pretty lame if we’re being totally honest.
But this article is about the exact opposite of that old saying. Here are examples of “boys will be boys” that are good, positive, and will put a smile on your face.
1. Who’s gonna win this argument?
there are two drunk men outside my window and all they're saying is "NO, you're MY best friend in the whole world" back and forth

5. LOTR masculinity.
Fellas this fall is all about Lord of the Rings masculinity
That's right, we're going on long journeys with the guys
We're swearing oaths to our buddies
And if you say goodbye without a soft forehead kiss then buddy you fucked up

7. I’m sure you’re lovely.
So my BOYFRIEND comes home last night absolutely smashed, gets undressed and then just stands there in my room. So I'm like are you coming to bed? And he goes "no thank you, I'm sure you're lovely but I have a girlfriend" and goes to sleep on the floor ???

12. Can’t wait for him to wake up and see this.
Let’s make this kind of behavior the standard for “boys will be boys” and we can completely turn it around! Starting now!
