Hey everyone! News editor Rachel Surman here.
Rachel will be going around campus to interview students to see what the term "basic bitch" means to them.
This is coming off Rachel's column that was published yesterday (and in today's newspaper) on the term and the controversy that ensued.
Curtis Randolph: "It's not derogatory, it's a term that could be applied to anyone. A basic bitch is a person of low-substance and doesn't have a personality... a general lack of an interesting demeanor" #basic
Adam: "I don't think it's derogatory. i think its just girls that are following the crowd. Instagramming Fall, your brunch and Starbucks...that is basic."
"It's not a good thing" -Adam
Quin West: "What a basic bitch is, is someone who seeks to the basic elements of society just to be liked. I would never call someone a basic bitch to their face. It's someone who is cliche in fashion and taste."
Quin West: "I guess it's good for commercialism I guess"
The boys were shocked that I've been called basic before, and told me that maybe it could be a good thing. Also, that if I truly was basic, then I would fight against the stereotype. Reverse psychology? I think so.
In conclusion: there is no such thing as a basic bitch. That is all.
