17 year old "boy"?

Is a 17 year old a boy or a man?

I think that if you are old enough to have held and then lost a drivers licence, old enough to get drunk and be out at 3am, old enough to steal licence plates, then you are old enough to be charged as an adult.

Enough of this "boy" nonsense. At that age, they are a "young man", or "young gentleman" as my elders and betters used to call me, in an attempt to get me to behave like one.
