I imagine a best boy could be a best girl if he were a girl or if she were a girl. On the other hand, feminists a few years back were highly offended by being called “girls” around the same time others had decided they didn’t really appreciate being called “boy”. Life is SO hard on us sensitive types, trying to find inoffensive words and failing no matter what we do because SOME group will be offended with whatever we choose.-This is why we create euphemisms. It takes a little while for the perpetually offended to realize they are supposed to be offended by the euphemism too. In the mean time, we can talk — after a manner.-I was watching the final episode of EUREKA last night and Sheriff Carter asked, “Aren’t you the dog catcher”-To which the dog catcher responded, “I am the biological specimen containment specialist.” or something like that.-That was a fun show.
