It is a bit much. I know a Karen and she's a great person but her life has changed over the past few years. Her name has become a real bane to her, and it's weird to me that is her new reality.

To me, "Karen" has just become a PC way of calling a woman a bitch...people say "look at this Karen" and things like that. It's so obviously just a substitute word that has become socially acceptable, because people love running jokes into the ground.

Imagine how Dick feels.

How Karen of you

That was rude. I'd like to speak with your supervisor. A person shouldn't be treated like this this day and age, things weren't like this thirty years ago.

This is what I'm talking about...what does this even mean?

I get your joke, but people called Dick are actually named Richard, so...

Yep. I dated a Karen when I was young and she was a sweet girl who holds a special place in my heart. It's a really stupid meme that lacks much depth.

It’s not going away at this point, she could always start going by Carrie / an alternative spelling if she wants to keep the K.

Pretty much. That doesn't mean anyone named Karen is a bitch though.

Starting now, let's all just change it to Jen. Jens are now worse than Karens.
