About

“Bitches Be Like…” is an expression that is typically used as a preface to describe various cliché behaviors and catchphrases associated with women. In image macros, snowclone variations of the phrase have been used to indicate the subject of the joke, in a similar vein to the satirical YouTube series Shit Girls Say.

Origin

One of the earliest known uses of the phrase “bitches be like” comes from the rap song “I’ll Bee Dat” by Redman (shown below), released on December 8th, 1998.



“My first name must be he ain’t shit
‘Cause every time I’m in a car bitches be like he ain’t shit
I’ll bee dat, I’ll bee dat, I’ll bee dat, I’ll bee dat”

The earliest known image macro using the phrase was submitted to the Asian Town Forums[6] on April 15th, 2012, which featured a photo of the rear end of an uncooked turkey with the caption “Bitches be like / I’m still a virgin thoe (sic)”. Within the next 10 months, the thread received over 900 responses.

Within the next three months, the video received upwards of 89,000 views and 340 comments.
