Boi is not English; the word "boi" is West Frisian and is translatable to "boy" in Modern English. 126.96.36.199 22:32, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
- "boi" is an English word, as demonstrated by the citations showing usage. I don't speak West Frisian, but the translations section at boy gives jonge as the West Frisian word, the entry for which does not note boi as a synonym (none of "jonge", "boi" and "boy" are in the West Frisian Wiktionary or Wikipedia, which doesn't help).

I don't know wiki stuff, so I am not editing the definition. Instead I must say this definition needs additional work: The link to Wikipedia's boi is very generic. One that needs to be added directly here (definition) is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boi_(sexual_slang) (citations going back to 2005) Then dictionary.reference.com (dictionary.com): http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/boi Then I don't know if slang-ish terms are allowed here, but the current definition on wiktionary is slang-ish: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=boi http://lesbianlife.about.com/od/trans/g/Boi.htm http://www.doubletongued.org/index.php/dictionary/boi/ (citations going back to 1997) http://www.internetslang.com/BOI.asp (one of the few definitions that agree with one of the ones here) M-W does not yet list it at all. In general, the currently accepted term refers to a boyish girl or girlish boy. Often Transgender. The term is used in sexually progressive communities i.e. BDSM and GLBTQI/LGBTQIA - Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning or Queer, Intersexed, ally or aware ---- Pilcrow deleted this from the main page, with the reason "Use the discussion page" and never copied it here. Luckily, I had one more edit or the wiktionary community may not have been notified of the need for a change. —This unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) at 06/June/2012.
