For the past 6 months or so, I’ve been noticing that that new “insult” that girls and guys use on other girls, is the term “basic b!tch.”
Being called a basic b!tch means you like any or all of the following:
Being in a sorority
Seasonal scented candles
Now, when I first heard this term, I thought it was hilarious. I myself like a number of things on this list. What stared to bother me though, was when people were using it as a straight up insult. Like “oh that girl is such a basic b!tch.” To me, this means that you don’t think that girl is special or unique in any way, just because she likes things that are trendy or comfortable. This is in no way, shape or form okay.
Life is hard, and life is wonderful. The last thing we need is people running around calling girls basic b!tches. If you like any or all of the things I just listed, embrace the hell out of that. You’re special. You’re unique. There is no one else in the world out there like you, and liking common things that everyone else likes doesn’t make you “basic.” You don’t need to explain to anyone why you like something. Sometimes you can’t even explain it to yourself.
So I’ll see you tomorrow, Ugg boots, Lulu Lemons, North Face and Starbucks in hand. I am not basic. I am Megan Mace. You are not basic, you’re wonderful.
