Basic

I hear a very specific subset of gay men throw this term around more than any women, but What Do You Really Mean When You Say 'Basic Bitch'?
And so the woman who calls another woman basic ends up implicitly endorsing two things she probably wouldn’t sign up for if they were spelled out for her: a male hierarchy of culture, and the belief that the self is an essentially surface-level formation.
