Yes, but there is a difference. If the tag is used to say, "hey, I want an informed, gender specific response to this post" then it may be a valid tag. Not all posts beg such types of responses. For example, you could post this: http://hubski.com/pub?id=131056 and tag it #byyski and ask in the text "Fathers of Hubski do you help inform your children's diets or does this fall largely to the mother?" -Bad example, but you get the point.

I think users should use either tag whenever they feel it's necessary to speak to one specific gender, otherwise keep things gender-neutral. As a sidenote, I prefer #boyski to #byyski, and #girlski to #grrlski for that matter.

I don't see myself ever using either tag, but far be it for me to care one way or the other about how people use tags. I think it's always cool to see things like tags being used in ways I'd not considered. Go to town byy's and grrl's :)
