When Cardi B said “A hoe never gets cold”, everyone nodded but these researchers decided to put these claims to the test and used TikTok to share their scientific findings.

Cardi B said, “A hoe never gets cold” and so it was. These researchers however wondered why it was so. Other than Cardi B’s divine hoe energy simply declaring it to be.

While we can debate whether hoe is a derogatory term or whether we’re in a place where we can reclaim it to self-identify as powerful sexual beings, this article will focus on the findings of these ‘researchers’ who put Dr. B’s theory to the test.

The paper which was published in a legit journal named the ‘British Journal of Social Psychology’ was titled, “When looking ‘hot’ means not feeling cold: Evidence that self-objectification inhibits feelings of being cold.”

In one instance they even mentioned the rapper within an academic context, making this the most interesting research paper in the world.

“This study tested self-objectification as a mechanism responsible for the muted awareness of bodily sensation demonstrated by Geordie girls and canonized by a quote from the iconic rapper Cardi B — ‘a ho never gets cold,’”

The study took into consideration 'self-objectification' i.e., how much of a ‘ho’ someone was and whether they felt cold when they were objectifying themselves to a higher degree.

One of the authors of the study made a viral TikTok in the most iconic fashion.

In the simplest of terms, when one is focusing on their external state (objectification of self), they are focusing less on their internal body signal, making them less cognitive of temperature changes and the way they affect them.

Research was conducted in Florida at night and surveyed women waiting to get into clubs or bars. Some of the questions included whether women cared about their physical appearance on a daily basis, how intoxicated they felt and of course, checked their temperature.

They also took full body pictures, cropping out faces to maintain anonymity to consider how ‘exposed’ the participants of the study were.

The findings revealed that a ‘ho’ does in fact, not feel cold.

Some however wondered whether it was simply evolution at play and that women's bodies had simply adjusted to temperatures.

“There is literally no relationship, the relationship was nonsignificant, between their amount of skin exposure and how cold they felt. So it can be inferred that they’re too preoccupied with thinking about their external appearance to think about their internal sensations.”

The TikToker and researcher also clarified that she didn’t think there was anything wrong with being ’hot’ or being a ‘hoe’ and that she was simply interested in testing out the theory.

All we can say is that Professor Cardi B came to the same conclusion all on her own.
