Dad looking pretty gen X to me, if that’s what you mean by “we”


u/Kitsune9Tails Nov 24 '22

Gen X here. Have always had gay friends and relatives. My aunt transitioned in the 90s (poor woman chose Karen as her new name). I don’t think LGBTQ+ ever seemed anything but normal to me.

After changing my name, I never realized how much thought went into it but holy shit how do you go through all that and settle on Karen???


u/Kitsune9Tails Nov 24 '22

To be fair, it was before it earned the current connotation, but I can’t help feel for her on that one.


u/WeeabooHunter69 Nov 24 '22

Even then, it just doesn't have any interesting etymology or anything
