The streets of Toronto are filled with so many sights to see, foods to eat and people to meet. And although the general population of this busy city is pretty chill and awesome, it's safe to say that the streets of the 6ix are filled with basic bitches. Yes, basic bitch--- defined as someone who is unflinchingly upholding of the status quo and stereotypes of their gender without even realizing it, by Urban Dictionary. It's okay to admit it, and there's no shame in it either. Gurrrl, if you want to take squad photos with the CN Tower then you better slay queen! If you want to rep Toronto brand name threads with Adidas jogging pants then all hail to you. The best part of Toronto is that everyone is allowed to be who they are and no one's going to judge... well at least I won't.
So just to have some fun and call out your favourite basic bitches, here are a few phrases you're bound to hear or have already heard on the streets of Toronto by our very own Toronto basic bitches.
