There is nothing wrong with being basic.
I am aware that it started as kind of an insult from girls who think they are special snowflakes and who don’t follow the trends. But the truth is, everyone should do what they like including wearing uggs and always being at Starbucks.
Because, at the end of the day, who cares what others think? And that is exactly the mindset that started a whole new thing where guys act like basic Instagram girls. Yes, I know not all girls act like this but it is just harmless fun, and it is clear that these guys are not trying to insult anyone.
This is what the creator of the following ingenious posts had to say.
The reaction has been nothing but positive. It almost feels more like paying homage to women instead of mocking them. I’m a female and a feminist, so I’m naturally able to create content that’s not going to be offensive to women, and on top of that, our awesome female followers are able to laugh at themselves and their own “basic” tendencies.
Parodies done in the right way are always funny, and the content is just so relatable to both sexes. And at the end of the day, a lot of the content isn’t even guys mocking girls — it’s them being themselves. Guys can be JUST as basic and thirsty as girls on Insta!
I had an idea for a post on my blog, What If Guys Acted Like Girls on Instagram?. I recruited all my guy friends to create the photos for me, and when the blog started going viral, the idea for the Instagram account was born. I (with the help of my friend Travis May) launched the account on Thanksgiving Eve and it blew up immediately.
