For my part I just find it funny - I think it gives these things too much credence to make it a pet peeve. But I would poke a little fun at it, in what would hopefully be perceived as a good natured way.
I do wonder if it helps perpetuate the stereotypes of gay people all having Peter Pan complexes, or even worse of being pedophiles. And before people leap on me for even saying such a thing, those are perceptions that realistically our community needs to deal with.
I mean my operating theory is people pick these names because they imply people are fun and approachable. And I'll even grant that since I'm a more serious personality, I could learn a little from people who make that a goal. So I'm the last to preach when people are at least attempting to achieve that goal.
But you're much too good looking to be a boy, a kid, or heaven help us a 'boi'. You're a very attractive man, as far as I'm concerned.
