Someone who is unflinchingly upholding of the status quo and stereotypes of their gender without even realizing it. She engages in typical, unoriginal behaviors, modes of dress, speech, and likes. She is tragically/laughably unaware of her utter lack of specialness and intrigue. She believers herself to be unique, fly, amazing, and a complete catch, when really she is boring, painfully normal, and par. She believes her experiences to be crazy, wild, and different or somehow more special than everything that everybody else is doing, when really, almost everyone is doing or has done the exact same thing. She is typical and a dime a dozen. There are many subtypes of basicness, such as the basic ratchet, the basic sorority bitch, the basic groupie bitch, the basic I'm-so-Carrie-from-Sex-and-the-City bitch, etc, but ultimately, they all share the common thread of being expendable and unnoteworthy and, in some cases, having absolutely no redeeming qualities.
"I've gotta get to Hollister and Bath and Body works for the third time this week, the just announced a new sale! I just don't know how I'll ever fit in that mani-pedi with Amanda and Brittney today. Ugh, I'm just going to call in sick with my period. I need a Pumpkin Spice latte or a Cosmo right now, I can't handle this pressure. Can we go to Applebee's for dinner tonight? ...Ooh, the new Shia Labeouf movie! LOVE HIM!" - basic bitch inner monologue
