We all loved the relatable “Girl Math” Tik Tok/Twitter trend with hilarious habitslike justifying spending $20 on a top because you’ll wear it 20+ times so that’s less than a dollar per wear. However, after this trend has now come the “Boy Math” trend and it is not looking great for the boys. “Boy Math” is a trend created by the fem side of Tik Tok and Twitter giving examples of the interesting reasoning they’ve personally experienced men using, calling out toxic masculinity while sharing a laugh at some common experiences.

Here are 10 of my favorite examples of “boy math” inspired by the creative women of Tik Tok and Twitter.

Quick reminder: Does this “math” apply to every man? No. But we all most likely know a man whose reasoning skills align with at least one of these hilarious and entertaining posts.
