Still Beat Tho is a slang phrase used by men in arguments with women that they've had sex with. It is genuinely regarded as the ultimate comeback to any insult a woman could use against a man she's had sex with, implying that despite the man's flaws, the woman still slept with him.
The phrase has its origins on Black Twitter. Some of the earliest known uses of the phrase came from user @OfficiallyIce. On July 29th, 2011, he quoted a Twitter user who was quoting the lyrics to "FU Right Back" by R&B artist Frankee about how her ex boyfriend was bad at sex. @OfficiallyIce added "Nigga still beat tho" (shown below, left). Nearly a year later, he pointed out the power of the comeback (shown below, right).
The phrase continued seeing use in the following years in a similar manner. For example, user iDntWearCondoms tweeted a meme with the phrase in October of 2016, gaining 100 retweets and likes (shown below, left). In December of 2017, user @AskTrillAC posted a picture of an NFL referee with the phrase, gaining over 280 retweets and likes (shown below, right).
The phrase began growing more popular in the summer of 2018, becoming a meme used in multiple different ways. For example, on August 2nd, 2018, Twitter user @AlrightIGetIt posted a picture of a scientist with a caption about the phrase, gaining over 14,000 retweets and 28,000 likes (shown below, left). On the same day, user @Pluto_eg posted a parody Yu-Gi-Oh! card for the phrase, gaining over 500 retweets (shown below, right). The same day, the phrase was added to Urban Dictionary.
Around the same time, the phrase saw use in the anime community, as people inserted it into videos of fighting scenes as an object labeling meme. User @Kevinstein_ paired an argument with a scene from Dragon Ball, gaining over 120 retweets and over 1.6 million views (shown below, top). User @pattytrills used the phrase in a clip from My Hero Academia, gaining over 400 retweets (shown below, bottom).
