"Boys will be boys" means you agree to be butt-raped

Listen up boys, just as some other man has the right to ask your permission before shoving his dick up your ass, and you have the right to say "no," so you have the right to ask a woman her permission before you shove your dick in any part of her body and she has the right to say "no."

End of discussion, no confusion. "Boys will be boys" as an excuse for privilege to commit violence means you have just surrendered you ass to be butt-raped any time anyone feels like it.

Grow the fuck up and recognize the difference between a "right" and a "privilege" and realize that demanding rights for everyone is noble, and demanding privilege for yourself is childish and selfish.

It's a very fast and very slippery slope from "some humans, e.g. men, should have more rights than others, e.g. women" to "some humans, e.g. nobility, should have more rights than others, e.g. peasantry" or even the old chestnut "some humans, e.g. white people, should have more rights than others, e.g. everyone else." (*)

Your only hope is to get a brain, and adopt some enlightened self-interest and embrace the very simple concept that all humans are equal and have equal rights to equal opportunities, or before you know it, someone is going to strip you of your preciously held rights, and tell you it's because you're not really human.

And once you've been designated as "sub-human" or "less important," then the next step is having a dick shoved up your ass without your consent, and you're left to cry all by yourself, since you've already surrendered your legal rights to justice. Chew on that one next time you try to pooh-pooh something as "boys will be boys," since you could very well be the next victim of said "boys."

(*) Here's a fun game to find out your own prejudices: read two of those sentences with the subjects reversed, to wit:
(1) "Some humans, e.g. women, should have more rights than others, e.g. men," and
(2) "Some humans, e.g. black people, should have more rights than others, e.g. white people."
If you're not experiencing an uncomfortable emotional response right now, you're either Jesus or lying to yourself. Fuck, those sentences even feel weird to me, and I wrote them to make a point. The point being that we've been programmed - and often selfishly adopted - the premise that inequality is the natural order.
