BODYBUILDER.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was 3% body fat in his heyday.

Regarding boy/girl, man/woman. Here in America, we refer to them as Guy for man/boy and gal for girl/guy. Just like Joanna said, not yet a woman/man, but no longer a girl/boy.

So from now on we use gal and guy!

Personally I disgust those middle-aged men call themselves "we boys", ....unless in a kidding/funny tone....if they mean it, well it sounds like really disgustingly childish to me. Some women could be cute doing that but those men just made me sick

But then some male don't like to be called as boys, they want to be mature, some male want to treated like "boys" cause they are just little boys in heart, some female wanted to be called as girls no matter in their 18s or 80s cause they want to sound young and desirable, some female don't like that cause they to look independent.

So....who're we to judge and generalize and fuss about? You can't read people's mind nor can you judge them. Just like and dislike...

And then I think one's height has anything to do with being "boy" or "man", I had a classmate in junoir high school who is 190 cm tall but somewhat mentally challenged, more of a very tall boy.
