Why Are White Women Losing Their Fucking Minds Right Now?

Every day you open up your phone, there is a new viral video of white women aka a ‘karen’s’ embarrassing themselves in public as they either shout at brown people and threaten to call the police on them or they flip out because some poor cashier asked them to wear a face mask.

The idea of a Karen has bothered me for a while now and I’ve been trying to reckon with this playful dismissive terminology to describe pretty cruel and disgusting behavior from entitled women that recognize there are no real consequences for their actions, positive or negative.

This corny perfunctory Karen name-calling came to a head recently as two wealthy spoiled St. Louis lawyers, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, stood outside their property pointing guns at protestors marching past them in fear that they would be looted even though the protestors were marching to the mayor’s home to demand her resignation after she doxxed protestors and released their names and addresses.

Protestors marched through a gated community to get to the mayor and the McCloskey’s ran to grab artillery to uh, murder black people?

Here is their defense for pointing loaded guns at protestors:

“We were threatened with our lives, threatened with a house being burned down, my office building being burned down, even our dog’s life being threatened. It was, it was about as bad as it can get. I mean, those you know, I really thought it was Storming the Bastille that we would be dead and the house would be burned and there was nothing we could do about it”

On July 14th, 1789 the French lower and working-class citizens started the French Revolution by storming the Bastille which was France’s armory and a symbol of the wealth gap and power inequality in that country.

So if you ever think Americans are ‘storming the Bastille’ and you feel like you need to protect yourself then you are on the wrong side of history. Basically these well-off assholes are fully aware that they benefit from a wildly unfair system and were shook because the brown people might finally hold them accountable for it.

But I don’t want to focus on these two cowards.

They are both Karens for sure by why are these people suddenly revealing themselves to us in the most aggressive and cringeworthy way possible? Surely they must be aware of all these videos going viral and how terrible these white women look shouting and spitting about a black woman standing outside of her apartment complex or whatever.

I think I’m pretty transparent here on Deadseriousness and I love you all who read my nonsense regularly. I am attempting to explain something complicated here and I don’t think I’m a good enough writer to get my point across but walk with me. We’ll get through this together Let’s see what happens.

*takes deep breath*

Donald Trump didn’t create anxiety for the working class but he certainly put it on Alex Rodriguez’s HGH regiment as the entire nation has been tense for half a decade now. In these times of uncertainty, many conservative right-leaning women have reverted back to retro roles in their households.

This new wave of Tradwives—women stepping away from the workforce and returning to traditional housewife roles—is the result of a time of massive economic uncertainty. We live in a world where needing to work two jobs to get by and pay the bills has become the norm as the government actively removes more and more financial safety nets on a daily basis while blaming poor people for their own poorness because look at these billionaires. They worked so much harder to be born rich or to be fortunate enough to continually fail upwards.

This is especially challenging for women who are already burdened with old school gender roles that require them to do the heavy lifting in raising children and day-to-day chores. With so much of our lives feeling hopeless and meaningless, some white women have embraced becoming a submissive housewife again.

It is a way to take back some control.

They’re not one of the millions of people filing for unemployment during the pandemic.

Nope, they’ve chosen to not work.

It’s a way to reclaim power especially in a post-#MeToo world where gender roles are sort of up in the air. Being a tradwife is an easy way to give your life some meaning and not have to do the heavy lifting of modern feminism. Strange that entitled white women would take the easy route, right?

As alt-right losers cling to tradition and heritage and Confederate flags and statues of slave owners, it makes complete sense that their wives also participate in this return to tradition. The Black Lives Matter movement infringes on their vision of a world where black people are less than.

If these white women are struggling in the workforce and they’re feeling financial anxiety then black people shouldn’t be rocking the boat trying to get equality. If white women can’t have something than no one can.

This pandemic exasperated tradwife’s woes. The only fulfillment they have on a weekly basis is being rude to waitresses they feel superior to and slowly pushing shopping carts up and down chilly grocery store aisles for hours.

You’re trying to tell these emotionally-paused super resentful women that they can’t go to Applebee’s anymore because of a virus that the man they voted for is saying isn’t even that big of a deal?

Wait, I have to wear a face mask that makes me slightly uncomfortable occasionally even though after a few minutes I totally forget that I’m even wearing one?

These women have so few things in life that they enjoy and they’re not going to let a virus that’s killed 133,000 people stop them from getting their dirty nails cut by a severely underpaid Asian immigrant who just left a country where wearing a face mask is no big deal.

This is why a majority of white women voted for a rapist whose entire campaign was anti-women instead of, ya know, the woman. It’s the same reason why southerners who were too poor too even own slaves still fought for the confederacy in the Civil War.

It behooves their reality to continue to feel as though they are ahead of brown people. You can spit on cashiers asking you to wear face masks because by choosing to be a housewife, you’ve maintained some imaginary feeling of dominance over people who would otherwise be your peers if you returned to work.

When these white women shout on camera at black girls simply trying to sell lemonade on the corner or black guys just bird watching in Central Park, they are fully aware of the way they will be publicly perceived. They’re not performing for us. No, they are signaling to their fellow frail caucasian sisters that they are not alone in this crazy world. It’s their bat signal.

So I suppose I worded this headline incorrectly. White women aren’t losing their fucking minds right now because they’ve elected to ignore and disregard their minds long before “Karen” became a thing.

There’s nothing wrong with being a housewife and taking pride in staying home and raising your children and doing the laundry and shit. But that doesn’t make you a hero anymore. Ironically feminists busted their asses for decades to turn being a housewife into an option instead of the mandatory career choice.

If we want to end these conservative white women’s reign of terror then we must stop lightheartedly referring to them as ‘Karen’s’ as it is quickly becoming a badge of honor for these sociopaths. They feel like their worlds are caving in on them and want the recognition, attention and to feel special. Putting them on camera screaming is fueling their miserable lives.

You see a white woman not wearing a face mask and staring at you daring you to call her out, just keep it moving. Maintain your 6 feet of social distance, make sure your own masks is covering your nose and ignore these maniacs.

You’re minding your own business and a white woman starts yelling at you about her parking space or that she’s lived at that apartment her whole life and doesn’t recognize you, just know she’s begging you to pull out your phone and validate her racist beliefs.

Ignore white women and they’ll go extinct. Or bomb a hospital. I don’t know. It’s a coin toss.
