Webster’s dictionary adds “cisgender” and “genderqueer”

On Wednesday, Merriam-Webster caught up to speed with two words people have been using to describe their gender identity for at least a decade, adding “cisgender” and “genderqueer” to its unabridged dictionary. Among the 1,400 words, you’ve probably seen a few of them across Tumblr for a while now

Update: Apparently these additions were too much for some people.

But Merriam Webster was having none of that.

They know what it means to throw shade.

And they’ve been trolling people who hate new words all week.

Got damn!

good work, dictionary people
