Now we have the "Karen's" and the "angry black women."

It goes long back. Sure, it was Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, but it was Karen who didn't like the fruit of the tree of knowledge and asked to speak to the produce manager. That's the real reason they got kicked out.

/Karen reappears as the woman Cain married. Total punishment for that dude.

A Christian is sentenced to death in the Colosseum. He's thrown into the ring, and slowly a gate opens, revealing a ravenous lion. The Christian sinks to his knees with eyes closed and prays for salvation. A few moments later, when he realizes he's not being devoured he peeks out and sees the lion across from him, also praying.

"Halleluiah!" he shouts "God has saved me by turning this lion into a Christian!"

The lion says "Sure, I'm Christian... but I am just saying my prayer before dinner."

You're confusing them for anti-masker women who either refused to wear a mask, or yell at other people for wearing masks. The Venn diagram for anti-maskers and racist nutjobs is almost a circle.


No, guys, it was specifically used for women calling out people for NOT wearing a mask. Anti-masker women and men can go fark themselves, obviously.

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: I can't even imagine trying to be a teacher in 2020 when all the kids' parents can watch over your shoulder and just butt in any time they have a problem with your curriculum.


So... take that fact as an opportunity to get the parents involved, and educated themselves. Hearkens back to the classical Greek ideal (beloved by Robert Heinlein, if I am not mistaken) when teaching was a presumably wiser older person, and a younger person, sitting together on a log and learning together, from each other.

Seriously, just for a moment, imagine a forum where multiple teachers, parents, and children are all participating together. Chaos? Maybe. Or maybe not. Why does organized behavior always have to be a top-down pyramid? Because people are idiots who have to be herded to accomplish anything?

Just perhaps, if that is what you expect, then that is what you get.

we already had words for unpleasant people.  "Karen" was supposed to be the lady that called the police on black people for having a BBQ, or other such things.  My teen tried to tell me that if I complained about not getting some food I ordered I was a "Karen" for doing it so it's not even just women - it's any adult that does anything at all.

It could be that 2020 is just chaos and none of us know what anything means anymore.


No.
It was used for a "demand to speak to your manager" type of woman with a certain haircut. The racial element is all part of the same thing.
It's slang, not a literal scientific definition. If that upsets you, don't use the term. Don't use the term "cool" either, because it's equally ambiguous. Or maybe you can carry around an Oxford dictionary and argue with people over semantics. That's what a Karen would do.

Super Chronic: When did "Karen" cease to have a specific meaning and become a catch-all for "woman who does bad things"?


Last year, maybe the year before.  I'm not sure of the origin of the term, but that asymmetrical, sharp-winged pseudo-bob hairstyle you see in a statistically-significant number of middle-aged middle-class white women started being called The Karen (not sure why Karen, but the name probably was meant to reference the Rachel from the Friends era).  Someone noticed that this hairstyle turned up in many white women who are aggressively confrontational in retail ("I want to speak with your manager" at the drop of a hat to get deals or free shiat).  This could just be coincidence or selection bias, but the hairstyle and the attitude of self-entitled biatchiness became linked in the zeitgeist.  At that point, Karen moved from a hairstyle to a lifestyle choice, ie megacoont.  So, when you say "Karen" people know you mean some McMansion-owning, jumped-up white trash biatch went spare for absolutely no reason.  And then this year happened.  You know, the one when white people got generally mad that they aren't allowed to kill people to get their tips frosted and that Those People got uppity for just a little extrajudicial murdering.
