Conner is currently in the lead for the male equivalent.

These are all frat boy names, which is not analogous to a Karen at all.

Yes, and 3G, and 2.5G, and GSM. If you want to see what they looked like, do a find-and-replace on the 5G ones.

I'll assume the exact same things happened with the rollout of the original analogue networks, FM radio, and spark gap apparatus, with the only changes being the fonts (to whatever was slightly out-of-date and hard to read by the standards of the time).

Not quite in the same lane of conspiracy, but the earliest technological conspiracy theory I'm aware of is The Air Loom, where a man was convinced a gang expert in the then-brand-new sciences of pneumatics and magnetics were torturing him and stalking him to observe the effects of their torture. It's interesting that his delusions mirror exactly what we see nowadays in the gang stalking/targeted individuals conspiracy theories with only the technology involved changed. If you read his writings about what he felt was happening it could (apart from the spelling) be straight off a Wordpress site being advertised via replies to Donald Trump tweets.

It's interesting that brain dysfunctions seem to follow similar paths despite very different societies.

Nah, itís not just the popularity of the name, itís also that the name is associated primarily with white, middle-class people.

I personally think Kyle is the analogue to Karen. It just screams entitlement, he does MMA in his back yard, wears monster energy drink clothes, and pretends to be a navy seal in bars and picks fights. They're definitely married, Kyle and Karen, if they aren't perfect analogues. Plus you got the one K away thing from completing the trashy trifecta

Well, nobody gives a poo poo about how it affects real life Karens, so I can't imagine that factoring in for the Kevins or whatever. Tho I doubt the internet ever agrees on a male Karen because the internet isn't as invested in boiling down men into one unpleasant stereotype to name and dismiss, generally. Chad is the only one I can think of and that's just an incel thing.

The Karen meme is pretty specific in the kind of woman it boils down to an unpleasant stereotype to name and dismiss. Just like attempting to name the male equivalent is pretty specific to whomst it targets.

This. Thereís a subset of people saying Karen that mean a white middle class woman using her privilege to be an rear end in a top hat.

Thereís an entirely different subset that latched onto it to be hella misogynistic.

I was a baker for almost 10 years. That looks fine. Maybe a little more proofing and definitely another few minutes in the oven. I assure you I've baked and shipped worse than that.

Steve or Paul. One is too dumb to realize he is wrong, while asking advice from an expert then dismissing it, because he is right. The other thinks everyone like him agrees with his hosed up viewpoint, and tells the woman store owner to shut up, men are talking, while complaining to the male cashier about prices.

Basically when its used to shut down a woman with a legitimate complaint, rather than merely using her privilege as a bludgeon for entitlement.

"I think it'd be nice if we stopped killing women so much."
"More Karens here to complain to management, shut up."

The other misogynistic use is applying it based on the criterion "I don't want to gently caress her" rather than on privileged behavior.

I've seen both, and don't care to go back to where I saw them to get screen shots for you.
