We Need to Talk About Karen
What started off as a harmless internet meme to poke fun at a stereotype that we all recognise has turned into something a lot darker.
I now simply must take it upon myself to mansplain the Karen phenomenon to you all.
This essay aims to explore the following,
- Who is Karen and does she have a dark side?
- What has been the backlash to the Karen phenomenon?
- Why are people keen to engineer Karen incidents?
- Why is Karen held in such disdain?
