As an official Karen (blonde mom of two, owns a station wagon, age 44) I disagree.

If you seriously think Karen is even in the same _universe_ as the n-word, I will need to speak to your manager.

This one is probably a troll. But I have seen people sincerely call “Karen” a misogynistic slur.......and really, COME ON.

We white ladies need to face the fact that we have - and exercise, even without meaning to - an immense amount of privilege in the world.

I’ve been the target of misogynistic hate many times. I know it when I see it. Someone saying “Karen” isn’t that. It’s just pointing out my privilege.
