This video by College Humor diagnoses basic symptoms.
If you're prone to lighting scented candles, obsessively reading your horoscope or Instagramming inspirational quotes, you might have a case of the "Basic B*tch." I think Urban Dictionary put it most eloquently when it said a basic b*tch is a woman who "think she the sh*t but really ain't." Another definition classifies the basic b*tch as an "extra-regular female," which is slightly less offensive. Other symptoms of basic-ness include becoming irrationally excited about Starbucks' pumpkin spice lattes, marathoning any show on the TLC or MTV networks and dressing up as a "slutty fill-in-the-blank" for Halloween.
Though the term "basic b*tch" is relatively new to the pop cultural vernacular, it has taken the world by storm. Luckily, all of your basic symptoms are largely manageable, and perhaps, even preventable.
