My name is Karen, and I'm sick of this shit!

I'm a nice person. Please stop associating me with psychos. Can't we call them Debbies or better yet, Susans? Every Debbie and Susan I know are bitches.

Any other name suggestions?

Hi, I'm Karel Čapek. I wrote War with the Newts (1936) and invented the word robot in 1920. I wasn't handsome but I had a sensuous mouth.

What happened to Becky?? I hate every single fucking Heather I have ever known in my life also.

Susan is a pretty name, though.

Debbies are right cunts, though.

by Anonymousreply 5Last Friday at 5:27 AM

Karen, you can be Karen without being "a" Karen.

But since you wrote to complain, apparently you ARE a Karen, Karen.

And a cunt.

Which goes without saying.

Any replacement name needs to roll off the tongue, have a bit of a bitchy edge to it, and be a name that isn't common for younger women today. Suggestions: Debra? Sandra? Patricia?

by Anonymousreply 7Last Friday at 5:31 AM

Sorry, but Karen is perfect. Patricia and Sandra are not common enough. Karen is common enough that it perpetually offends women named Karen and those who know them. And that keeps people bitching about these women who are wreaking havoc on all Karens everywhere by being their awful selves.

Y’all goin to hell for dragging this woman. She asked nicely.

Karen, honey, your request is denied because unfortunately it is too perfect a descriptor to describe general bitchassery, but thank you for asking politely and acting with decency. Keep it up - at least people will describe you as Karen, but not THAT type of Karen. Being an exception to the rule sucks, been there plenty of times, but once you accept it - it gets better.

All the Kirsty's and Kristy's I've ever known were cunts. Agree with poster upthread, it's that hard K is a significant component.

Those of us her long enough to know the Cheryl origin story know that:

1) She was a real person

2) She was the Kareniest Karen to ever Karen. Always asking for the “editor” (?) to remove posts and block people.


3) Her pussy stank

by Anonymousreply 28Last Friday at 6:25 AM

Karen is perfect, but Tanya would be good too. The bitchiest women I've ever met though are Shelleys. I've never met one that it isn't a real bitch.

I have a cousin named Karen, and she's anything but a "Karen." She takes the Karen thing in good humor most of the time, but she has two teens who have apparently discovered the meaning of Karen and every once in a while, they'll give her an eyeroll accompanied with a "sure, Karen," (with a heavy emphasis on the K).

Sorry, none of the names suggested here even remotely hit the ear the way that Karen does.

Time to change your name, ladies. Karen is here to stay. Might I suggest Kiki? There aren’t too many Kikis out there who are cunts...except maybe Dunst.

by Anonymousreply 32Last Friday at 6:37 AM

Courtney’s are horrible and it’s an ugly name. Maybe someday when all the Karen’s pass into the next realm, Courtney can step in. It’s more a gen x name, whereas Karen is boomer. Debbie is boomer, too. I don’t know anyone under fifty named Debbie.

I work with a Debra who is a world class cunt, as well as being absolutely frautastic (she’s of the “Live, Laugh, Love” variety), but the BIGGEST, most venal cunt to pollute my life was a Susan.

I have a cousin and 3 friends all named Karen (spelled Karin, Karen, Karyn) and they are all sweet. I used to think it should be Becky, as for years without exception, every Becky I met was a horrible person, but over the last several years I've met a few who aren't. Melissa's and Mary-Ellen's lately are proving to be problematic. I guess we should take a pole - any paid DLer care to set it up?

As I mentioned on another thread, the millennial cunt version is the “Jodi.”

“The Jodi” is even better because it implies a profound trashiness and psycho quality you don’t get with “Karen.”

(Thanks, Jodi Arias!)

And Jodis are much more likely to be stay at home moms with 4 kids.

In short, a whiny, lazy, psycho millennial bitch is a “Jodi.”

Jodie is not common enough. The reason Karen works is because it's so ubiquitous for white women from the boomer generation and it's a bland, crappy name. Everyone knows a Karen.

R63, R46 here. Your post made me want to fess up. I was trying to be funny. To be honest, the first encounter I ever had with a "Karen" in my life was in Jr. High School. Her name was "Karen." So I've had it in for Karens ever since. So I love the idea of Karens calling their "senaters" to complain about people.

by Anonymousreply 74Last Friday at 7:00 PM

Luv ya, r74.

It’s a shame there’s no way to indicate tone of voice. I’ve had some great things that, if said out loud in a certain way would be hilarious, but after typing it out you realize people can’t tell what you mean and there’s no way to edit it so they will without spoiling it.
