'''Boys will be boys''' is an English phrase, that expresses the idea that [[boy]]s are expected to push the limits of acceptable behavior much further than [[girl]]s. It can be used as an excuse not to punish a boy for an action that would earn a female peer a [[punishment]]. Conversely the same expectation can be a excuse not to worry that a boy is getting punished far more often and much harsher than their female peers.
