Karens

Friends, did you read Stacey Abrams’s profile in WashPo?

I hate how “Karen” is used as a slur but let me make a single exception and say that both she and the author of the article are such perfect, typical, exceptional Karens that they should be put in the dictionary to illustrate the concept.

    1. It’s a putdown for clueless, entitled women. As you can imagine, there isn’t one for clueless, entitled men, which is one of the reasons I hate the word.

        1. I’m not a racist or a sexist, and I think it should apply to the epitomes of cluelessness like Adams and the male journalist who wrote this hagiography for her.

    1. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

      I wonder if he would have voted for Trump.
