When did my name become a pejorative?
I stole this definition of What does being a Karen mean from Quora:
A “Karen” is a term used on Reddit and in Internet slang in general to refer to a specific type of woman. A “Karen” is typically a woman between the ages of 30–60 who likely has children and has the air of a suburban mother. However, what is most distinctive and important to notice about a “Karen” is that she is incredibly entitled, nosy, and belligerent. “Karen” is almost always used as a slur for these kind of women who refuse to treat other people decently
Okay, so when did this happen?
Y’all, can I confess something to you? I’ve never felt my name fit me. Especially now.
Don’t be a Karen. I so wish they’d picked the name Sue. Or Gloria. Or Mabel. Maybe Dorothy? Joyce. Grace. Beverly. Betty.
