Webster’s Caught Changing Definitions to Accommodate ‘Transgender’ Community

Webster’s Dictionary is now changing words in the English dictionary to accommodate those in the LGBTQ ‘community’ who suffer from gender dysphoria.

According to Webster’s Dictionary, Newspeak is a “propagandistic language marked by euphemism, circumlocution, and the inversion of customary meanings. As they further point out…

The term “newspeak” was coined by George Orwell in his 1949 anti-utopian novel 1984. In Orwell’s fictional totalitarian state, Newspeak was a language favored by the minions of Big Brother and, in Orwell’s words, “designed to diminish the range of thought.” Newspeak was characterized by the elimination or alteration of certain words, the substitution of one word for another, the interchangeability of parts of speech, and the creation of words for political purposes. The word has caught on in general use to refer to confusing or deceptive bureaucratic jargon.

That’s precisely what Webster’s Dictionary is doing to accommodate those who think they are the wrong gender.

According to LGBTQ Nation Merriam-Webster has announced the addition of a new definition of “they” as a singular non-binary pronoun to their online and print dictionaries.

The new entry for “they” reads: “Used to refer to a single person whose gender identity is nonbinary.”

The lexicographer for Webster’s told TransAdvocate

“Evidence for ‘they’ as it is used to refer to one person whose gender identity is nonbinary is increasingly common in published, edited text, as well as all over social media and in daily personal interactions between English speakers. There’s no doubt that it is an established member of the English language, which means that it belongs in Merriam-Webster’s dictionaries….

The language’s lack of an exclusive gender-neutral pronoun is famous, and they has been quite ably filling in for more than 600 years. Its use largely goes unnoticed in such construction as ‘No one has to use it if they don’t want to,’ and it’s quite possible that the nonbinary they is headed for a similarly unremarkable fate.”

Those who control the language are control ideas. And those who control ideas, control the world.
