If we labelled any opinionated black woman "Latisha" then God help us. There'd be ransacking, rioting, cities burning and looting.
Thank God the average white woman is calm, sensible and civilised enough to just remain calm.

Theres a big difference between raising a legitimate concern and being an entitled twat. Im ok with having a name for people who are uneccessarily rude to customer service people. I don't like when its applied to any white woman who is 35+ whenever they have an opinion. It can be used to shut down legitimate issues.

Have you actually met a man?
I used to think it was only women that were bitchy until I joined a few Facebook groups that were not just female oriented, the men bitched far more than the women. There were a few that were like a dog with a bone, they would argue their point until the mods took the post down.

I had to change my name on Facebook because I disagreed with a man about something. I wasn't rude, but they way he carried on you would have thought I'd run over his cat.

Lol being so sensitive that it would be mortifying that you share a name with a bad joke is on the individual.

I’m a blonde and I’m not offended by bad blonde jokes lol.

I think it's funny to an extent but some people are just brain dead idiots and use it to insult everyone because they have no imagination. It's not funny if you call the whole world a Karen, you sound like you're in primary school & you just learned a new insult. I know you are, you said are but what am I? This is how I imagine you a bitchy 11 year old.

I just came here to ask same😂. My name is not Karen, I know 3 Karens and I feel bad for them. We all have a little “Karen” in us sometimes. Strange to pick a name and turn it into kind of offensive term. Maybe funny amongst friends, sad that media use it. I am embarrased for the reporters who write an article and use social media slang or jump on trends set by teenagers or immature adults and try to call it reporting. No wonder everyone knows who Kardashians are, but are oblivious to whats going on in the real world.
