We feel sorry for every woman named Karen. Over the course of the year being a Karen has become a very negative thing. If you are referred to as a Karen you are a bad person.
Karens think they are superior, they do stupid things like pull guns and point them at protestors, they do not wear masks into Trader Joe’s and when asked to put one on they start yelling screaming and throwing things. A Karen is everything bad you can think about a person. They have an unflattering air of superiority.
Every time there is an angry unappealing white woman throwing a fit, she is a Karen.
(The Washington Post) “One watches the video of the mask-defiant Karen in Dallas who angrily hurls the contents of her grocery cart to the floor, then, only hours later, one sees the terrifying video of a Karen and her husband (the male version of a Karen, sometimes known as a Kevin, has lately been termed a Ken) defiantly guarding their St. Louis manse from passersby marching in a protest Sunday. This barefooted Karen, wearing a black-and-white striped shirt and the regulation capri-length Karen pants, is waving a pistol; her husband, in his schlubby pink polo shirt, brandishes a semiautomatic rifle. (In fact, they are lawyers Mark and Patricia McCloskey, but in today's context there is no mistaking that they are Ken and Karen America.)”
Then there is the Kevin. Same thing, male version.
So to the Kevins and Karens who are nice people and don’t fit the mold, we feel for you. We hope all of the nice Kevins and Karens of the world do something good to push the negatives out of our minds; focusing instead on all of the good people can do in our world.
We are amazed how we, as a society, assign negative connotations to people’s names without regard to what good those named Kevin and Karen do. We believe there are a lot of nice Kevins and Karens out there. We owe it to them to stop the Kevin and Karen name calling…
Let’s just call bad people out for what they are…
