I shouldn’t have to say this, but here’s how you know “Karen” isn’t a slur:
• You are allowed to name a baby Karen.
• If you yell “Karen!” in a grocery store, someone will just assume a helpless man is looking for his wife.
• Will & Grace doesn’t call her “The K-Word. https://t.co/MVXYQDnahL

My dad is 1/8th Karen so I’m allowed to say it.

Personally I think we should all be allowed to say Karen because once you have an asymmetric bob with highlights the world sees us as the same.

The Karens will soon start calling each other “Karen” and anytime it’s uttered by anyone else, they’ll say it’s “their word” and we’re not allowed to say it. The media will then report on it as “the K word.” https://t.co/wb9hcEZ8ix

Karen IS indeed a slur. Please use the appropriate term: Woman of Complaint.

You get into a discussion about the k-word, about how it’s used and societal attitudes towards it. Your white lady friend says “You don’t have to say “the k-word”, you can just say it directly in this conversation, it’s okay.”
Do you say it directly?

White women are not now, nor have they ever been, racially oppressed. There will not ever be any words that are the equivalent to any word used to degrade and dehumanize Black people. Stop it Karen.

As a Karen can I officially set the record straight
Karen is not a slur
And if you don’t agree I need to speak to your manager
