3. Thank you. The whole Karen meme is ageist and misogynistic.

It's even gotten to the point where middle-aged women are criticized for their haircuts or are hassled just for wanting the same customer service everyone else gets. I recently had the "single woman dining alone" experience at a restaurant, but was afraid to complain for fear of being referred to as a 'Karen'.

People who throw this word around need to stop.
