Boy ... Girl ... ?

Observation heard at a local convenience store yesterday:
“You can’t tell the boys from the girls nowadays!”
They were talking about a young woman whose closely fitting t-shirt and jeans didn’t leave me in any doubt about her gender. My guess is that she worked in construction, plumbing or the like.
This was an old cliché back in the days of hippies when boys wore (wonderfully) long hair. I remember many happy instances of gender confusion where I didn’t know the sex of the person until they were close.
Seems funny but sad to still hear people saying this so many years later.
