男の子 and 男の人
« on: May 12, 2010, 09:11:51 PM »

I'm trying to understand culturally at what age is someone no longer considered a 男の子 and considered a 男の人. Would it also be the same for 女の子 and 女の人? Thanks a million!

In Christ,
"I will pour out my prayer unto the Lord, and to Him will I proclaim my grief; for with evils my soul is filled, and my life unto hades hath drawn nigh, and like Jonah I will pray: From corruption raise me up, O God." -Ode VI, Irmos of the Supplicatory Canon to the Theotokos

 I just asked three of my co-workers and the response was one 難しい and one rather in different 分からん. Haha. Everybody said it was pretty gray but that 男の子 was about until the age of ten, 男子(だんし), then after about 18 or 20 you're an 男の人.
