“I’m thirty, I don’t care if I’m basic.”
(Quick background story: My friend’s teenage daughter said that ordering pumpkin spice latte was so basic. My friend finds that usage of the term insulting. I agreed. It’s a condescending label. I quietly decided that I don’t care and I’ll order PSL and do “basic” things if i felt like it.)
