Personally I like it, as it better conveys that boomerism is more of a mindset and not one necessarily restricted to age.

The Karen meme has been around for way longer than OK Boomer so shouldn't it be the opposite?

They also have very different meanings.

So I finally decided to see why the name Karen was chosen and:

Another use of the term Karen as an internet meme dates to an anonymous Reddit user, Fuck_You_Karen, who posted rants denigrating his ex-wife Karen, whom he alleged had taken both his children and, later, his house during divorce proceedings

Yeah seems kosher

"OK Boomer" is kinda racist by implication. "Karen" is just full-on racism.

Not in the same way currently, unless you begin to force an artificial connection turning a self-contained insult with a sarcastic preamble into its own catchphrase. Ok boomer having evolved from just boomer is unique in becoming a definite insult in that its purpose can be validated by tye context it's used in, in this case admitting a standstill while arguing politics with a conservative elderly. This is fairly specific context where this meme works. Whereas Ok Karen is not applicable to utter when confronted with a Karen who's missed her dose of downers due to the sheer unpredictably of the situation.

I'll give you an example OP, in reply to your post I can say "OK chode". Any number of other insults could have been used after the sarcastic OK part because of the ambiguity of your opinion regardless what you're insulted with afterwards. I've just chosen to call you a chode because you strike me as one OP.

millennials and gen z stuck working retail service industry jobs without the same opportunity to better themselves older generations have had invented KAREN to describe entitled well off housewives who abuse them due to being dissatisfied with their cushy lives without realizing or caring how hosed up that is

everyone involved is kinda miserable

most KARENS are women who married guys they didn’t like that much for financial stability and now their only pleasure in life is their almond milk vanilla latte, and WHAT IS THIS, SOY?? SOY???

FOR 20 loving YEARS I’VE BEEN BLOWING THIS FAT BORING JERK I HATE JUST TO LIVE IN A BIGGER HOUSE THAN I GREW UP IN, IVE HATED EVERY SECOND OF IT, HOW HARD IS IT TO USE ALMOND?

Perpetuating the stereotype since 1978.

Karens are typically entitled 30-somethings, nowhere near a boomer in age
