What is a basic bitch? They're those peppy, cute, and pretty much mindless trend followers who don't seem to have an original thought in their heads. Sure, they can be fun to hang around with, but if you're not interested in a girl who obsesses over brunch and constantly brags about yoga, you may not want a basic bitch girlfriend.
There are several ways you can spot a basic bitch once you know the signs. Whether she's in her natural habitat at the local Starbucks (ordering a non-fat pumpkin spice latte, of course), running errands in her standard leggings/Uggs/sweatshirt get up, posting gym selfies with the hashtag #thinspiration, or uttering her catchphrase, "I literally can't even right now," the signals are loud and clear.
But which is worse: Her abuse of "inspirational" Marilyn Monroe quotes or her overly-used #blessed hashtag? It's up to you to answer that cringe-worthy question. Check out the top signs that you're dating a basic white girl, and vote up the most egregious acts of basic bitchiness. Or in the words of her people: Keep calm and vote on!
