If you’ve spent even 30 seconds on TikTok since September 1, you’ve probably come across the term “boo basket.” No, it isn’t a way for you to circumvent dating apps by asking a kindly stork to drop a six-foot-something man who believes in therapy and only thinks about the Roman Empire once a day on your doorstep as your new boo.

When I first saw this trend, I instantly thought,”Well, that’s bullshit.” Why? Because the dudes don’t do this!! I say this as a woman who is exclusively attracted to men. (So embarrassing, I know.)
