We've reached peak WOKE Bollocks.
One of the world's largest Publishers of Dictionaries, Merriam-Webster, has bowed to transgender activists by changing the very definition of the word “female” to include 'anyone who identifies as one.'
A new entry for the word female includes the description, “having a gender identity that is the opposite of male.” A female is now someone “of, relating to, or being the sex that typically has the capacity to bear young or produce eggs.” They’re also “made up of usually adult members of the female sex.”
Definitions for the word “male” have also been similarly deformed.
The change underscores how transgenders, who constantly complain they're discriminated against and marginalized by society, are, in reality, extremely powerful. So powerful they can literally change definitions of words to fit their warped view of the world.
Merriam-Webster also changed the definition of “anti-vaxxer” to include those who oppose mandatory jabs, even if they broadly support the practice of vaccination. The Dictionary, once a neutral book, listing the meaning of words, has now fallen to Woke ideology, much like academia, the public sector, and big business.
George Orwell suggested that this sort of manipulation of words is a form of mind-control. Orwell warned us, with his novel 1984, that the left would attempt to control language (and thus the people) and he appears to have been spot on. If control of language was centralised, Orwell proposes, such an organisation could alter the very structure of language itself, making it impossible to even conceive of disobedient or rebellious thoughts, because there would be no words with which to think them.
