    Karens: the meme

    Quote Originally Posted by Chlodovech
    This article comes from an SJW-source. Why does it side against the Karens you may ask? In part because originally black SJWs invented the term for (feminist/SJW) women of European descent. The rest of the explanation is the simple fact that it's TERFs (feminists whom reject transwomen's claim to womanhood, mostly Anglo women themselves) who want to ban the word, because other SJWs call TERFs Karens - not entirely logical, as transinclusionary female SJWs are as Karen as the rest of the Karens. But pro-tranny SJWs hate TERFs - and that's why. So basically this article is just a bit of good ol' infighting on the part of the radical left. Delightful.

    Not posting the entire article because it's full of bizarre SJW buzzwords and there are gems such as: "The author and campaigner has a long history of transphobic comments and has also dabbled in bi erasure and whorepobia, so shes not exactly an authority on slurs." Whorephobia, really? And bi-erasure? Gosh!

    In case you don't know what a Karen is, read this:

    Karens On Twitter Are Now Claiming Karen Is A Slur, Which Is The Most Karen Thing Ever



    It is with a heavy heart I must announce the Karens are at it again. This time, theyre trying to claim victimhood for being called out on their shit.

    A Karen, of course, is a white, middle-class woman who uses her status to oppress others. Anyone whos worked in retail or hospo has probably had a Karen ask to speak to their manager at one point or another.

    Now, a bunch of problematic white women on Twitter are claiming term Karen is a slur like the N-word. The short answer is: its not.

    Usually, the people who cry slur! at the utterance of Karen often have a bunch of other shithouse opinions too.

    Not only are they misappropriating the metalanguage of oppression against people of colour, the queer community, people with disabilities and others, but they typically also see no problem when they themselves use oppressive language against certain other groups of people.

    This particular wave of calling Karen a slur is being spearheaded by British TERFs trans-exclusionary radical feminists. These are the same cis women who misgender trans women, sometimes using, you guessed it, slurs.

    Huh so "karen" is the black term for a cat lady. Interesting, you learn something every day.
    Incidentally this is exactly what my boss acts like.

    Dear white women:

    The Establishment hates you and wants terrible things to happen to you.

    How the Karen Meme Confronts the Violent History of White Womanhood

    BY CADY LANG
    UPDATED: JULY 6, 2020 4:11 PM EDT | ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED: JUNE 25, 2020 12:53 PM EDT

    When you look up the hashtag #Karen on Instagram, a search that yields over 773,000 posts, the featured image on the page is a screenshot of a white woman staring intensely into the camera, pursing her lips into a smile as she touches a finger to her chin, a movement thats at once condescending and cloying.

    The womans name is Lisa Alexander, but on the Internet, shes most recognized as the San Francisco Karen, after a clip went viral of her last week, in which she demands to know if James Juanillo, who was stenciling Black Lives Matter in chalk on the front of his own home, was defacing private property.

    The video of Alexander is one of a myriad of other videos, images and memes that have emerged in the last few months of Karens, a slang term for middle-aged white women (which seems to have stemmed from the popular Can I speak to a manager? meme,) who have become infamous online for their shameless displays of entitlement, privilege, and racism and their tendency to call the police when they dont get what they want.
    (...)
    Rest at the above link.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    In my days, we called these women "goody two shoes" and blatantly ignored them. Nonwhites know that white people are "weak" and will continue to attack us verbally, eventually to provoke violence. The demographics have fallen in the US, and the power base is rapidly changing. "Karen" is a slur no different than other name callings like racist, bigot, or Nazi. When the name has no impact or power over us, the Left has to invent some new stereo-type, but this is plainly idiotic.
