At the risk of being seen as a fuddy duddy "get off my lawn" type, a confession... [View all]

I'm really not a fan of this whole "Karen" moniker thing. In fact, it bugs the daylights out of me. I cringe when I see it.

All I can think when I encounter it is how sorry I feel for women who really are named Karen and relief it isn't my name.

I know it is a short cut to label someone an unpleasant unduly self-entitled person who demands satisfaction at every perceived slight, and that's a bit lengthy for a tweet. But does this world really need another damn shortcut stereotype?

By all means call out the behavior for what it is. But why the need to use a woman's name to label it? I honestly don't get it. Maybe I'm missing something.
