Not at all. I have addressed your point repeatedly. Not my fault you keep shifting that goal post and complaining when things don't go your way. Karen can stay Karen and Karen's who are being Karen's for COVID can be COVID Connie.. You have repeatedly said that you were concerned that this was an attack on white women in particular. You have also repeatedly advised that you are concerned about the stereotype, as you feel it is now being used against women who are not "Karen"... The meme is not harmful to women who are not "Karen", Dave. It isn't actually harmful at all. It is a way of identifying and yes, mocking certain behaviour. The only people who are taking offense at the meme are Karen's. “The Karen meme is used to reference a middle-class white woman who feels entitled to special treatment,” said Jacqueline Arcy, assistant professor of new media at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. “She is depicted as the type of person that asks to ‘speak to a manager’ when she is dissatisfied with her service, often provided by working-class people of color. A defining feature of a ‘Karen’ is that she is oblivious to her white privilege.” [...] “The term ‘Karen’ is not equivalent to a racial slur because it is not propped up by a system of racism against white people,” Arcy said. “Categorizing the ‘Karen’ meme as a slur is misleading because it obscures the racial discrimination the meme was designed to call out.” The attempt to equate it anywhere near equivalent to a slur was always going to backfire. But what about the claims that it’s sexist because it particularly targets women? “As a woman, I don’t really find it sexist, because it’s not aimed at all women,” said Twitter user Tara Darcy. “I know I don’t act like that so it doesn’t offend me. In my opinion, if you’re offended it’s probably because you act like that.” Arcy also added, “its purpose is not to oppress white women, but to identify the way they oppress others.” Pay particular attention to that last sentence. And then ask yourself why you think this stereotype is harmful and to whom. Once again, I don't even understand what you are talking about now. And frankly, if anyone whines about any meme about skinheads and considers it an attack on skinheads, then yeah, you would be defending them against what you perceive to be an attack. Something something about being anally literal applies here. If something or a meme exists to mock skinheads, truck on in my opinion. Anything that diminishes bigots and their ideology is a good thing. An attack against whom? As I said, if PoC's want to mock Karen for her bigotry, then you are in absolutely no position to tell them it doesn't help. Diminishing bigotry by mocking the bigot is a good thing as it is a way of lessening the impact on the victims and most importantly, diminishing the bigot. And if someone is privileged in that they feel they are entitled to whatever they want and they take their ire out on say service workers and demand to speak to the manager because they do not feel as though their privilege is being taken seriously enough by people they deem to be less than themselves, then they are bigots. When people act as though they are privileged or they believe they are privileged, then they will oppress others. They will consider others to be less than instead of equal. Do you understand what I am saying here? Or as Karen (her name) noted on twitter: #Karen is not a slur, it is a stereotype white women earned by raising monsters, voting for monsters, and behaving like monsters. Our behavior is so atrocious to everyone except us that our own children are making memes and videos mocking us. White privilege is a driving force for Karen. And I don't think you quite understand just how white privilege is harmful Dave. This systemic and institutional control allows those of us who are white in North America to live in a social environment that protects and insulates us from race-based stress. We have organized society to reproduce and reinforce our racial interests and perspectives. Further, we are centered in all matters deemed normal, universal, benign, neutral and good. Thus, we move through a wholly racialized world with an unracialized identity (e.g. white people can represent all of humanity, people of color can only represent their racial selves). Challenges to this identity become highly stressful and even intolerable. The following are examples of the kinds of challenges that trigger racial stress for white people: Suggesting that a white person’s viewpoint comes from a racialized frame of reference (challenge to objectivity); People of color talking directly about their own racial perspectives (challenge to white taboos on talking openly about race); People of color choosing not to protect the racial feelings of white people in regards to race (challenge to white racial expectations and need/entitlement to racial comfort); People of color not being willing to tell their stories or answer questions about their racial experiences (challenge to the expectation that people of color will serve us); A fellow white not providing agreement with one’s racial perspective (challenge to white solidarity); Receiving feedback that one’s behavior had a racist impact (challenge to white racial innocence); Suggesting that group membership is significant (challenge to individualism); An acknowledgment that access is unequal between racial groups (challenge to meritocracy); Being presented with a person of color in a position of leadership (challenge to white authority); Being presented with information about other racial groups through, for example, movies in which people of color drive the action but are not in stereotypical roles, or multicultural education (challenge to white centrality). Any of this seem familiar to you, Dave? You should read the article. It will hopefully enlighten you. Take a moment. Have a think about it. Afterwards, consider the Karen meme with that in mind.
