  Today, my little sister complained about a young boy in her class always pulling her hair. She asked when boys will stop doing it. My mom replied, "They won't, even when they're grown-ups," then looked over at my dad and shared a dirty smirk. FML

Damn right! This is the best FML I've read in a while. Whilst hearing that from your folks isn't favourable, it's much better than fighting, bickering, or a number of other things.

Boys will be boys.

That's a pretty shit saying. You're just teaching boys at their most impressionable age that it's OK to disrespect and harm women instead of teaching them that their actions are wrong

He isn't referring to woman abuse, so woman like to have their hair pulled or ass spanked during sex, they just like that bit of aggression with some passion

Just no. It's a shit saying that justifies whatever crap little boys like to pull, whether it's just getting in trouble in general or disrespecting a little girl.

I think your looking to much into this, by my guess the kids are probably in pre k or first grade, around there. You assigning a criminal charge to a kid just being a kid. She didn't complain that it hurt or that it was violent it was just a kid pulling her hair, it happens at every school on every playground it's just how kids grow up,

That's ridiculous. Standing by the statements 'boys will be boys' and 'they're just kids' will only further cement into place the patriarchy and sexism that still (really fucking insanely) exists in this day and age. It's because of people like you that domestic abuse is still happening and women have to fight for feminism (even though, you know, it's basically equality.)

The thing is it everyone gets that talking to. A comment mentioned the whole "boys will be boys" which just excuses actions. I had a boy in kindergarten who kept pulling my hair and most people just laughed or said "he likes you!" Instead of doing anything to help.

Girls are told that when a boy is mean he likes you, and then when we're older we're asked why we like guys who don't treat us well, or the bad boys. *rolls eyes*
