Here we have a sampling of real-life uses of the name “Karen”. Enter your name and select your gender to adjust sex-specific vocabulary such as she/he appropriately. Press the Change Name button and see how everything looks.
A person’s own name produces a special response in the brain; take your time and notice what this is like. Imagine that the internet and mainstream media are full of examples like this, with your name. You can remind yourself that of course, they aren’t talking about you personally. Does that make it better or worse?
All quotes and images are reproduced exactly. Numbers of Likes, Shares, Views, group members, etc. are all accurate. Except where writers specify that they are speaking of “real-life Karens” etc., none of the people described or addressed here as “Karen” were actually named “Karen”.
We welcome reflections on your experience. Use the Email Us button (at the bottom of the page) to send us your thoughts.

You know what’s fucked? As people keep going out and acting like covid isn’t a big deal, my nurse friends and I (in our 20s) are contemplating whether it’s time to get our wills drawn up. Because we know not all of us will make it. Hope you had fun at the beach, Karen.

The Pandemic Following on the Heels of COVID That Threatens Healthcare Workers and the Black Race: The Karen.
By Dr Megan Barb
As COVID numbers spike, scientists have identified another potentially fatal risk to America’s healthcare workers and to Black Americans known as the Karen.
