sorry

somewhere a little girl is scared

because her 

(male)

classmate hit her

she told a teacher but,

"Boys will be boys"

 

Somewhere else

a 10 year old girl cries

because she wants to play football

But her

(male)

Classmates said no to her

she told a teacher but,

"sports are for Boys and you know, Boys will be boys"

 

another place 

a girl is being shoved by her

(male)

classmates

because she wouldn't date their friend

she tells a teacher but, 

"you should have been nicer, and Boys will be boys''

 

Then, a 15 year old

is being harrased and catcalled 

by her 

(male)

classmates

she thinks about telling someone

but she knows what they will say,

"Boys will be boys''

 

But, no

girls don't experience sexism

Sorry that we spoke up

Sorry that we fought back

Sorry

but we are done

Saying 

Sorry

man... you wrote it very beautifully and expressed the sorrows of every girl.
"boys will be boys" this slang have to change and a girl should be respected.
a real gentleman will never treat a lady like this
