An actual Karen not being a Karen...

Who'd a thunk it???

https://www.thedailybeast.com/pack-your-stuff-and-get-out-of-my-house-says-patriot-front-members-mom


(and BTW, I DESPISE the "Karen" moniker. I know a couple of Karens and they are really decent people. I would have much preferred the derogatory IVANKA as the slur. But sadly it never caught on. )

2. I hate it too

It's an excuse for blaming women while men aren't held accountable.

4. Mean Girls (2004) - Oh My God, Karen, You Can't Just Ask Someone Why They're White



Dane Cook- The Friend Nobody Likes (2005)



"Every group has a Karen, and she is always a bag of douche," Cook said in the routine. "And when she's not around, you just look at each other and say, 'God, Karen, she's such a douchebag!'"


On September 12th, 2014, Redditor johnnylogic submitted a picture of a woman's profile with the haircut, along with the caption "The 'can I speak to the manager' haircut" to /r/funny[1] (shown below). Prior to being archived, the post gained over 3,100 points (72% upvoted) and 370 comments.

14. No, Paganism is (using the blanket term), though 75% +/- of adherents are women*

So, we get so we get twice, twice, twice the fun.

(I just read that somewhere, though I can't remember where - a Pew Research Study? They publish a religious studies survey results every year, or at least they used to - dammit Obama! )
