A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.

Typical signs to beware of include, but are not limited to:
-owning a Blackberry
-BLARES anything by Drake, 2Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Cali Swag District, or any other garbage entertainment rapper
-rowdily quotes "lyrics" from aforementioned artists
-has a weave reminiscent of a bird's nest after a tempest hit the tree it was in, and is dyed at least thrice
-wears torn leggings/stalkings (mostly of the fishnet variety), unpolished 8" heels (or higher, depending on how God-awful they look), fitted jean jackets (to accent the blubber 'round their arms and stomach), and 4 layers of caked on make-up to go clubbing
-repeatedly use ludicrous terms such as "YOLO", "swag", "boost", "beaking", "doe", "really", "naw", "actually", "twerk", "coaster", "dagga", etc., to make a valid statement when they speak
-have side bangs, despite having incredibly small-ass foreheads to support them
-are commonly overweight
and are mind-numbingly stupid; a safe assumption to make would be saying they're uneducated (as if they could pass the 4th grade)

If spotted, please report to the authorities, notifying them that they are possible smack addicts, or potential, degenerate Chaka Khan look-alikes.
Imagine a woman that wears skinny clothes, bad looking heels & fishnet stalkings, blasts Drake or Waka off her phone, would go out of her way as to cop CD's from these artists, has a bad hairdo, looks immensely disgusting as a human being, and would rather spend her time maintaining her looks, communicating among her folk, and being a jobless, gold-digging bum for the rest of her days, not even bothering to get herself a good shower, a paying career, and a damned effort to earn a diploma.

That, my comrades, is a prime notoriety of a ratchet.

God help us all.

Any inauthentic attempt to be "ghetto", or "street".
If your shirt says ratchet, then that is exactly what it is.

A classless, tasteless female who exhibits some or several of the following characteristics:
1. Has several children with multiple different fathers.
2. Lives off government funding.
3. Excessive drug or alcohol use.
4. Typically promiscous with a general disregard for men that she may be in a relationship with.

Usually these kinds of females were raised in single parent households with absent or abusive father figures. Ratchets can be any race or nationality and are not confined to certain styles or cultural taste.
Male 1: Wow, she is so ratchety she has two kids with two babies daddys, lives with her mom while working part time at marshalls and smokes weed 3 times a day.
Male 2: damn, what a ratchet.

Ratchet commonly refers to somebody who is convinced everyone is attracted to them. Takes an extended period of time getting ready, doing hair and makeup.

High heels and blazers are a staple in a ratchet girls closet. As well as leggings and anything made of chiffon. Use terms commonly found in the ghetto such as swag, yolo, nah, and duces.

Beware of girls named: Jennifer, Candy, Hope, Saxon, and Carrie
Saxon is so ratchet, did you see her blazer today
