Skip to comments.Webster’s Redefined ‘Sexual Preference’ After Amy Coney Barrett Used It To Match Leftist Talking Points
Posted on 10/14/2020 11:26:30 AM PDT by fwdude
The online version of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary changed the definition of sexual preference on the same day that senators scolded Judge Amy Coney Barrett for her use of the word during day two of her confirmation hearings.
When questioned by Democratic senators on the judiciary committee on Obergefell v. Hodges, which decreed a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, Sens. Mazie Hirono and Cory Booker reprimanded Barrett for using the term sexual preference, claiming that is was outdated and offensive.

And faggots try to tell us they are so powerless in society.
There is a very definite downside to having everything online as opposed to published in book form.
Even dictionaries are corrupt.
Well they can’t change my 1949 Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary which doesn’t have a definition for “sexual preference” nor any other modern two word phrases.
Yes, apparently it was meant to be a “how to” manual.
sexual pref·er·ence | \ -ˈpref-(ə-)rens \
Medical Definition of sexual preference
offensive, see usage paragraph below : SEXUAL ORIENTATION Usage of Sexual Preference
The term sexual preference as used to refer to sexual orientation is widely considered offensive in its implied suggestion that a person can choose who they are sexually or romantically attracted to.
Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.
George Orwell, 1984
The word “equality” is outdated and deeply offensive to lovers of freedom.
I demand an apology from the Democrat Party for their repeated use of such filth!
My gigantic Webster’s Dictionary from the 30’s says otherwise.
Dictionaries dont change anything; they are books. Word definitions are changed by, you guest it: People! What we want to know is this: WHO did this? Was it one person? Was it an editorial board? Whoever is was, they have Names. Where do they work? Where are they hiding? Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us who you are, you sniveling cowards.
The Senate is a disgrace.
Mayor Bill DiBlasio's wife (and ex-lesbian) Chirlane McCray plus their kids would beg to differ!
Good thing Webster’s is neutral/apolitical>s. I also object to using “gender” instead of “sex”. That’s to not offend the Karens.
So, the online dictionary, not just the social media, has a direct line to democrat central through which they get their orders to censor, wipe out.

I too can think of a lot of "P" words here, many of which would have had my dictionary taken away from me while I would be rinsing out the taste of soap!
Faggots and lesbos still works in my book.
