We used to play smear the queer. Boys will still find Eyewitness books of weapons and stuff and roughhouse. There's no getting away from it. Kids are basically puppies. They will play fight each other until they grow out of it. Sure California will take those picture books of swords and guns out of school libraries but kids will just watch Gladiator on Amazon Prime and learn what swords and flaming cannonballs do to people. This public access channel used to show uncut samurai movies in between the screaming Korean preachers and foreign news when I was growing up so any kid could tune in on the weekend and see ninjas getting cut in half. We used to hit each other with yardsticks.
