So woke: Merriam-Webster just made the definition of “woman” a lot more difficult to understand


The Merriam-Webster dictionary has updated its definition of “female” to include “having a gender identity that is opposite of male.” This in turn erases the concept of biological sex.

Sadly, one cannot just look anatomically or determine through basic science anymore. That would be much too easy on people. The dictionary, like everything else in society, has to make things 1000 times more difficult than it’s supposed to be.

The dictionary added to its primary definition of female, which is defined as, “of, relating to, or being the sex that typically has the capacity to bear young or produce eggs.”

This makes biological sense. One of the two sexes need to reproduce to bear kids, right? One would think, especially since it has shown to be a proven method for hundreds of thousands of years to keep species alive. Without one to push babies out that would be the perfect recipe to go extinct.

Extinction is not the end goal here.  

The acknowledgement of the biological, and scientific, and easy definition shows the dichotomy of the female sex and the male sex is suddenly negated and a hell of a lot more complicated.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary decided to add more explanations to the concept of what a female is, in order to satisfy the transgender movement.

Merriam-Webster’s sub-definitions, include:

  • having a gender identity that is the opposite of male
  • made up of usually adult members of the female sex
  • designed for or typically used by girls or women
  • having a quality (such as small size or delicacy of sound) sometimes associated with the female sex

Does this make any sense? Let’s put these in layman’s terms. These are the translations for those readers who choose not to make it a habit to read the dictionary.

  • Believing one is a female even though by looking at the person it is obviously a male.
  • A group of people who can be labeled as women. IE: A control group, or people you might find in the labor delivery room at the nearby hospital.
  • Things that women use like tampons, makeup, bras and so forth.
  • A typical female quality like, being physically smaller in size, having a higher voice, having breasts, or generally missing an additional appendage.

Merriam-Webster has moved to satisfy the mounting demands of transgender activists before. As Breitbart News reported in July, Merriam-Webster updated its definition of “trans woman” to “woman who was identified as male at birth,” once again taking another step in erasing the biological reality of women.

This is basically telling us that a man was born and decided he didn’t like being a man (or there is probably some form of DNA discrepancy or something) and decided to become a woman.

Notably, the new definition conflicts with the dictionary’s official description of “woman,”  which – as stated above – is “an adult female person.” Merriam-Webster defines “female” as “of, relating to, or being the sex that typically has the capacity to bear young or produce eggs. ” A trans woman cannot biologically do this because they are missing the parts to push a baby out and to ovulate.

Similarly, “trans man” is currently defined by Merriam-Webster as “a man who was identified as female at birth,” and the same common sense logic applies. A “man” is defined as “an adult male human,” and “male” is defined as “an individual of the sex that is typically capable of producing small, usually motile gametes (such as sperm or spermatozoa) which fertilize the eggs of a female.”

This is something women can’t do biologically. They simply don’t have the parts to produce sperm.


But, this definition change has triggered a fight within feminism because, some women believe that the transgender community are steadily erasing what it means to be a woman out of compliance to the transgenders.

Natasha Chart, a feminist writer at who has openly spoken out against radical transgender ideology and the impact it has on those who actually are biologically women (meaning they were born with the XX chromosome).

Chart told Breitbart News that she is “disappointed” to witness the “fall of important cultural institutions, like dictionary publishers, to woke social media mobs and belligerent, junior employees.”

Chart actually stated:

“These very online outrage brigades don’t represent either the public at large, or the considered opinions of professionals free to speak their minds, strengthen their backbones against irrational mob pressures, and start enforcing workplace rules against harassing colleagues over their political views. Then we’ll stop seeing embarrassing nonsense like this.”

Chart continued to show the stupidity of this new definition by stating the obvious.

“Everyone knows what women are, and that we aren’t defined by a state of mind that a man can have. I don’t have a ‘gender identity.’ I bore a child by means of my female body, not a state of mind, and it disrespects every mother and child to suggest otherwise.”

Sadly, they still need to understand the concept of male/female intercourse to understand how a seed gets made. Perhaps the idea is foreign to them because they don’t know how to make kids properly?

Even author J.K. Rowling, the creator of the famed Harry Potter series,  has been at the forefront of this feminist verses the Transpeople debate (Is that a thing? Transpeople? Or are they even rejecting the human race identity? Like do some identify as trees?).

She came under fire from transgender activists over the summer.

She said:

 “Erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives.”

Rowling, ever the stubborn type, has continued to stand her ground, despite radical activists calling for her cancellation, because that’s how they solve everything. They cancel people, and in their mind that person is dead to them, but they are unaware the world keeps turning.

Last month, Rowling even returned a 2019 award from the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights foundation. Kerry Kennedy, president of the organization, said that Rowling was making an unforgivable sin of posting “deeply troubling transphobic tweets and statements.”


“Boys have penises and girls have vaginas.”

Is too difficult for them, so they need to microaggresively define it to suit their needs. Science be damned.
