A style or type of conversation
which has the quality of a kind of bond-creating and bond-sustaining ritual
. "Boytalk" is not really either an antonym
to "girltalk." There is some doubt even of the existence
, though by noding
"boytalk" perhaps I've provided the impetus

. Also, keep in mind that girltalk is not necessarily limited to girls
, or, for that matter, to women
only, assuming the reader is someone who still embraces the dichotic gender paradigm
2. The title of a magazine column written from the mid-'90s to the present (8/2000) by Pat Califia, which appears in the lesbian magazine, Girlfriends.

3. Not (necessarily) to be confused with Girl Talk, a game.
