- Girl math is a term coined to describe the unique (and illogical) mathematical reasoning applied by young women to justify purchases.
- It broke the internet in September 2023 and men started teasing women for it.
- Now, women are claiming men are guilty of doing their own type of irrational thinking to validate their actions, known as boy math.
Remember girl math? It's that cutesy term that describes the unique form of mathematical reasoning that we gals employ to justify why we need to buy that purse or how we're actually saving money by returning an item. Sure, it may not involve formulas, numbers, or strict logic, but it serves as an internal rationale for us to feel better about how much we spend and the purchases we've made. It is, in short, a coping mechanism.
For example, as one tweet reads "girl math is buying things with cash cause technically it’s free." Yes, that is correct because if your bank account balance stays the same, then you won't lose any money, right?
Well, guess what? Boys have their own little math that they do, too. Boy math is a form of reasoning that may appear just as confusing as girl math to any logical and literal person. But unlike girl math, it doesn't revolve around extravagant spending or justifying purchases. Instead, it's a means by which men try to validate some of their ridiculous habits.
Following the surge of girl math in September 2023, women started pointing out all the things men do that make absolutely no sense to prove that men are just as delulu as we are. Let's dive into these tweets to unravel the true meaning of boy math.
