When you sign into any form of social media, you know that you are going to experience both highs and lows. We just need to keep in mind that whatever you are about to see online doesn’t mean that we need to get involved in it. Read it, like it, share it with friends, but adding your two cents is not something that is required.
Men are learning this on Twitter (we’ll never call it “X”), as they decided to comment on the girl math trend. Yes, girl math may not make sense to everyone, but ask most women and they will be able to justify most things that purchase with girl math.
And that’s what it is – a way to justify the things that are purchased. The light hearted trend was fun. It was something that if men just sat back and let women have their fun, they wouldn’t be experiencing what they are now.
Boy Math. The trend started on TikTok and instead of conversations about justifying purchases, men are getting absolutely roasted online with “boy math” calling out duplicitous shit that men do (some, not all… we’re not generalizing).
Some of our favorite examples of boy math? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. We have to admit, a lot of these made us legitimately laugh out loud.
THE HYPOCRISY OF CLEANING
“Boy math is claiming they don’t know how to clean a bathroom and then proceeding to clean the car with 10 different products.” Twitter user Lauren Partch wrote. How many of us can relate to that?
Men, a woman doesn’t want to come over to a dirty bathroom with coffee filters for TP. We want you to show you are well rounded and that you can keep all things clean. Good for you on being able to keep your car on point, but if your home is on the nasty… we’re running.
WE CAN TELL WHEN IT IS SHORT
“Boy math is thinking 5 inches is 8,” has to be one of our favorites.
Why the hell does someone need to say their dick is bigger than it is? Curious. Seriously, curious. There is no woman that wants something in them that is going to puncture organs or feels like it’s going to go in one hole and out another. Like, for real.
What matters is how you use it and TBH, a lot of us can testify that some with a verifiable 6 inches or over, don’t know how to use what they are working with. They rest on inches, when they should be learning how to live life with it.
Before someone jumps down our throat, we’re not saying that Moms are perfect. BUT, we’re discussing boy math here and we know way too many women that are shamed because the men in their life left. It’s left them with trust issues and well, yes daddy issues. But those issues came from a man… so shaming them for having them?
THIS AIN’T BOOMERANG
While we’re all about self care, we’d like to take a moment to remind men – your feet matter too. No one is going to want to have sandpaper rubbing against them and though we’ll be taking care of our feet, you need to back off if you be rusty and dusty. We’re good.
“Boy math is personally knowing at least one (1) rape victim but zero (0) rapists in real life.”
The reality is that this made us feel physically ill, but it is something that a lot of us can relate to, unfortunately. Rape is the most unreported crime, with 63% of sexual assaults not being reported to the police.
WE CAN MAKE OUR OWN $$$
“Boy math is being afraid of gold diggers when the only time you had your own property was in monopoly,” Katarina wrote.
This one made us laugh, because it’s true. See, so many times we’ve had men be like, you’re using me for my money. Sweetie, it’s 2023, and we can guarantee you that we’ve worked hard to figure out our own shit. We know what we want and we can pay for it.
We don’t need a sugar daddy. We are our own sugar mama.
HIT THIS NAIL ON THE HEAD
“Boy math is needing 15 attempts to count the votes correctly to become Speaker and then shutting down the government 9 months later,” AOC wrote. And that one speaks for itself.
