haha I just posted something exactly the same somewhere else. I'll copy and paste it:
Why do many gay men call other men~girl or boy? For example, "So, I saw this cute boy..." or "Girl, you look great." WTF!!!! AND when does a man stop being a boy, for example, the 50 year old man whose profile is hotboy2345234 or something like that? I like to think of myself as a MAN who loves MEN!! And damn, I LOVE MEN!!!!
Although it's ok in the immortal words of Missy Elliot (but she's a woman ):"Boys, boys, all type of boys
Black, white, Puerto Rican, Chinese boys.Why-thai,-thai-o-toy-o-thai-thai
