When does a boy become a man?

Surely when you’re 19 you’re a man, not a boy? A 19 year old playing an instrument isn’t impressive itself.

I believe it has something to do with breaking horses.

Transition to adulthood is personal

Gender is abstract

Growing up is impossible

Yes, that’s a definite thing. Using female as a noun is a big red flag (adjective is fine). I think because it’s a really dispassionate and scientific word that shows a lack of emotional connection to women
