Merriam-Webster Alters Definition of Female to Be More Inclusive

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary definition of “female” will certainly make the Lia Thomases of the world happy, but few others.

To cater for the more woke-leaning people, the world’s leader in English language definitions subtly modified the definition. Although it might seem obvious to most people, the new definition includes those not born as females. 

As you can see in the screenshot, item “b” includes a female to include anyone “having a gender identity that is the opposite of male.”

Today's "inclusive" definition of female

This is quite comical, because as Outkick pointed out, this was not part of the definition of female in 2019, which is just before America’s love affair with everything woke went into high gear.

Obviously, science and common sense haven’t changed in the three years since the last correct iteration of that definition. However, society is so deteriorated that the language itself has been attacked. 

The reason why the left are gaining a foothold on controlling language is because words have meaning, and words and their definitions shape thoughts. If one side can fundamentally change the definition of words so as to alter our view of reality, then that side can control almost everything else.

In George Orwell’s famous novel 1984, he wrote: “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” If this is not a shockingly accurate description of what the left is attempting to do through radically altering language, I don’t know what is.
