    What is this all about? I see it as a description. mainly about certain types of "females." I'm sure it has been around for a while; I have only noticed it in the last few weeks, but it seems to be picking up momentum as the next buzzword to become trendy and worn out.

    I actually heard it in a commercial today. I recently saw some stupid article about things that all Basic girls own. I had no idea these were all bad things. It seems like you just can't win today no matter what you do or do not do.

    for me, if i hear(d) a woman being described as basic, i would think its a good thing, like someone not all cluttered by the every day bullshit and is down to earth and a chill person

    That was my first impression. I didn't get why it needed to become so negative.
