my son is 4 and is doing weird things now. he thinks licking everything is just too funny. because it grosses me out. he likes to put his crackers and cookies on the floor then eat them. i have a 8 year old daughter who never did this. i was just wondering if this happens alot with boys.

Yes.  Yes it does.  My son used to lick cars in parking lots, shopping carts, tables, and people.  It's an autism texture thing.  Good luck with that!

Boys are absolutely nuts!  When you think it can't get any crazier it does.......The only thing you can do is expect the unexpected hula hoop

It an autism thing. My son hits him self when he upset. And bangs his head pretty hard. I dnt think it is a boy thing. Because some boys who do not have autism do not do this. And i know girls with autism that also do this.
