THE KAREN is closely watching us...

I once knew a Karen. But not in the biblical sense.

Another silly slang term I'd never heard of until this thread, and wished I'd hadn't.

It will probably end up as a short entry on Urban Dictionary, then be completely forgotten.

I fear I may have raised one. It's not a great leap from 'fiercely independent, self confident, take no BS' to Karen.

I'm not sure what this about, but I googled it and found this, so I assumed it was something about politics or face masks:

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Karen

Karen refuses to wear a face mask for her 5 minute trip to the supermarket during a pandemic. She harasses the workers, asks to see the manager and threatens to sue.

How to grow a karen:

1) Raise a confident child.

2) Send her to university to learn the ways of entitlement.

3) Give her a sporty, middle-aged haircut.

search internet for "Karen meme." Click on "images."

Then you will see what this is all about.

Every self-entitled lady customer who wants to complain to the store manager... is a "karen." She has a distinctive haircut.

Schimkowitz said the most convincing theory is that the character originated from a Dane Cook comedy special that aired in 2005.
