In Defense of Karens

In Defense of Karens


Extra Special Guest (and Nicole's partner's mom) Soni retells what happened when Nicole inspired her to negotiate… well, just about everything. She also shares what can happen when you stand up for yourself, and why we should reconsider our stance on Karens. To be totally crystal-clear - we’re not talking about the version of “the Karen” that's been illustrated as a white woman who weaponizes her privilege to cause the BIPOC community harm. Today, we’re talking about the version of a Karen who walks around in platform flip-flops, who asks for the manager, and has THE haircut, you know, the Karen. That Karen… may not be all that bad.
