New 'First Base' Meme Throws Those Old Sexual Expectations Out The Window

By Mike Walsh

Ah, first base. Every boy in middle school dreams about getting to those bases and boasts about how far they've gotten. It's the weirdest, most awkwardly toxic thing for twelve-year-olds to be discussing.

It's also weird that we define a relationship by how physical we've gotten with someone. So Millennials and Gen Z, being Millennials and Gen Z, are tired of these outdated sexual expectations, and have created a series of new definitions for the "bases."

One of the major devices of this meme is putting sex first, because we all know that that is definitely not where the home run lies.
