Merriam-Webster Suddenly Alters Definition Of ‘Preference’ After Dems Attack Coney Barrett


Suddenly, after Judge Amy Coney Barrett used the term “sexual preference” in her confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court on Tuesday and Democrats slammed her for using the term, the Merriam-Webster dictionary declared the term “preference” could be “offensive.”

Pink News noted that the dictionary updated its definition with an addendum stating,  “The term 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.”

Steve Krakauer, the executive producer of Megyn Kelly’s podcast, noted, “As recently as last month, Webster’s Dictionary included a definition of ‘preference’ as ‘orientation’ or ‘sexual preference.’ TODAY they changed it and added the word “offensive.”
