You didn’t think I would write an article about the Omega Male without having a female counterpart did you? While the basic bitch is not the direct opposite of the Omega Male, I believe they’re both at a similar level of insulting. For years there has been a type of women that I could not bring myself to hang out with. Thanks to comedians like Lil Duval I now have a term that sums of these types of women – Basic Bitches. NYMag covers the topic with a handy guide on the term. You might already be familiar with the term, or it might be news to you, but College Humor has a great video on how to tell if you’re a basic bitch.
What’s a basic bitch?
According to Urban Dictionary a basic bitch is “a bum-ass woman who think she the shit but really ain’t”. In more recent terms a basic bitch is also a woman who is regular, who follows the trend, who doesn’t have her own opinion, she’s boring, she’s ‘normal’, she’s basic. Is this who you’re dating? Here are 10 signs you’re dating a basic bitch:
She loves Starbucks. Now compound this with the need to Instagram every damn cup of Starbucks she drinks.
She says she’s got a wild side. By that she means once a long time ago, when she was really drunk in college she kissed a girl.
Gosh darn it she loves Inspirational quotes. They’re everywhere. All over her Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook… and around her apartment.
She loves the zodiac. And not as a passing interest. She actually checks out the magazines or papers to read her horoscope everyday and believes it.
She loves Lauren Conrad.
She has a wedding board on Pinterest even though she’s not engaged.
She listens to Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry non-ironically.
She’s always into the current biggest fitness trends, be it zumba, juicing, gluten-free or frozen yogurt, which she read about in [enter name of current girly magazine] or was told about by a good friend. She never actually bothers with any real research to see if it is beneficial. And it has to be something trendy, not necessarily something that works.
She loves yoga. Oh sorry I meant to say, yoga pants. She wears them everywhere.
She loves things yoga. Now if only she would actually do some yoga…
She expects you to adhere to a traditional ‘masculine’ role in the relationship. You have to be the breadwinner, pay for everything, be the daddy, etc. All the while touting just how much of an ‘Independent Woman’ she is.
