The name Karen has been getting a bad rap lately. Whether it’s “Karen” from Brighton who deserves to jog where Brighton isn’t, or Bunnings “Karen” who is aware of her rights and isn’t about to be oppressed by some facemask, the name has certainly become synonymous with misguided outrage and entitlement.
And in this sea of complaints to the manager, we sometimes forget that “Karen” isn’t just a title, but also a name. And there are countless wonderful human beings named Karen who are being branded unfairly.
Karen Hayes from Guide Dogs Victoria is one of them, and shared this call to action for all the real Karens:
To the good Karens and Kazzas of Australia – it’s time to stand up!— Karen Hayes AM DSJ (@karenlhayes) July 28, 2020
Be the Karens that we want to see in the world.
Wear your mask. Stay kind. Stay home.
