Why do British women say "boys" when referring to men so much?

My random guess... British women say "boys" because they are boys... boys who just think that they are "men"... but they're really boys. Just a random guess.

@AdamNY Nah it's arrogance, and it's mostly Scottish woman who do this.

It's probably not arrogance, more likely just a phase they're grow with. Like the South has Ma'am.

Soldiers are almost always referred to as 'boys' in plural. If you address a group of males as "men" they usually will laugh.

At most I'd probably be slightly agitated if I was called a "boy" rather than angry. It's a semi-feminist thing some women in Britain do. They think they're better. But it's mostly harmless. Mostly Scots btw. British doesn't mean English btw. It involves all of the British Isles.
