Author Julie Bindel said calling people ‘Karen’ was sexist and classist – not the only 5 replies you need but they’re a start

Author Julie Bindel started quite the debate on Twitter when she called out people who call people ‘Karen’. Specifically, she said this.

And it prompted lots and lots of responses, including plenty from people who agreed with her, including the Guardian’s Hadley Freeman.

But it’s fair to say the majority of people really didn’t.

Here’s the definition, just in case you were wondering.

‘Karen is a mocking slang term for an entitled, obnoxious, middle-aged white woman. Especially as featured in memes, Karen is generally stereotyped as having a blonde bob haircut, asking to speak to retail and restaurant managers to voice complaints or make demands, and being a nagging, often divorced mother from Generation X.’

And if 5 responses ever summed up how most people felt about Bindel’s tweet, then it’s probably these 5.






Oh, and also this.
