Article Adjective Question in Romanian

I'm just a complete beginner in Romanian, and was confused by the use of an article adjective in the sentence "El nu este o femeie, el este un bărbat." but not the use of one in " El nu este fată, el este băiat." Is it just the man/woman nouns that require an o or un before them or is it that "fată" and  "băiat" do not need an o or un?
