Ummm I donít think itís purity if the people you are asked to work with support literally nothing you do.

Also, again, it says something that the internet can conjure up a dismissive nickname like Karen or BBQ Becky or whatever after a single incident and have it spread across the web on memes in days, but you get twitter and this thread arguing option after option for a male equivalent and it'll never be settled. Like nobody's out here calling racist men Christophers after the dude who called the cops on his black neighbor for daring to exist in the building while his son begged him not to. They just call him an rear end in a top hat.

I mean I get it, you wanna call out the white privileged ladies who abuse that privilege and Karen is a very boomer-era name that not a lot of millenials or zoomers will have so it's a fairly "safe" target to become the placeholder for annoying entitled customers but, the internet being what it is, it's just a matter of time before it just becomes another term for "difficult woman," like we needed more of that. It doesn't mean everyone who uses it is a misogynist, but it is one of those internet things.

This doesnít really make sense unless you think Karen or Becky are like more feminine than other names? I donít know this is a stretch

Huntersoninski posted:

They're women's names. That's my point. The internet can get together and pick a name and go with it when it's a woman's name. When it's trying to do the same for men, it generally can't settle in one unless it's incels who do that for everything or apparently Kyle, which I've never heard of till now but I'm not super plugged in to the meme scene.

Again, I'm not saying anyone who uses these slang names is a bad person, I get it. Karen is a Boomer name and so the younger folks making these jokes can relate it to a teacher/parent/aunt/whatever they knew as a kid and conjure an image of a whiny, entitled customer. but just look at this thread, nobody can settle on a male version and one poster even felt sorry for men who share a name irl with the hypothetical meme.

You didnít really clarify your point.

If the issue is they are womenís names then being laser focused on a particular name doesnít matter in the slightest unless you believe Karen is somehow feminine than other names

Like I said a stretch

I'm not saying Karen is a more feminine name. I'm saying that people had a really easy time agreeing on how to stereotype specific kind of women and nobody needed a Twitter poll to agree on it. It's not the name. It's the fact that, culturally, it's way easier for folks to make female stereotypes like these into long lived memes than male ones.

E: like, use the Karen slang if you really want to, I'm not trying to stop you

I know your not thatís my point your argument is flailing without any seeming ability to form a coherent point.

Itís just the negative woke stereotype as far as I can see

Dienes posted:

I think their argument is that the Karen meme is ultimately about a white person abusing privilege. We created a meme that attacks white women for that lovely behavior, but white men, who have even more privilege, and engage in this lovely behavior even more often, don't have an equivalent meme pointing that out. The misogyny is how quickly and easily women were attacked when men engage in the same behavior at an even greater level.

I mean the equivalent would be cletus but they arenít really comparable because the anger ultimately doesnít manifest the same way in women and men.

People make fun of rednecks though they are more violent in nature which I guess throws people off but itís fundamentally the same idea

My whole point is saying something is bad because it could be bad in some other hypothetical is stupid.

I mean making fun of comic books is kind of steeped in classism at this point.

Considering comic books are main stream pop culture now.

Though generally most pop culture criticism especially online is steeped in classism

So the making fun of classism never really stopped
