    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.
