What Does 304 Mean?

304 means "Prostitute or Promiscuous Woman."

The number 304 is widely used in chat and on social media to refer to a woman who works as a prositute. By extension, 304 is sometimes used to refer to any woman considered to be sexually or emotionally promiscuous.

The use of 304 is based on the fact that when the number 304 is typed into a digital calculator and read upside down, it looks like the word "hoe," which is shorthand for whore (a synonym of prostitute).

Especially on TikTok, 304 is not considered a deroigatory term. Many women working as prostitues post with the hashtag #304 and talk about their working lives. For example:
@mfknnani #accountant #trending ♬ The Magic Bomb (Questions I Get Asked) [Extended Mix] - Hoàng Read
304 can be considered algospeak (i.e., the changing of words to avoid automated content moderation), similar to accountant (another coded term for sex worker).
