Bragging about being a “Big Boy” is becoming tiresome.
In listening to calls and seeing sites recently where the content attempts to persuade you that you need X, Y or Z because that’s what the “Big Boys” use or have is, I see the term is picking up momentum.
Here’s the problem – and I am NOT being overly feministic.
When are the “Big Boys” going to grow up?
Being a “boy” is demeaning and condescending terminology for men who have realized great accomplishments. Forget that the Internet is mostly a man’s world – at the top in marketing, anyway.
Would we refer to leaders like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet or Mark Victor Hansen or Steven Spielberg or Steven Covey as “Big Boys?” I think not. Come on boys, think of something more dignified.
