Merriam-Webster needed only six words to shut down sexistDr. Whofans who complained about the show’s latest casting announcement.
Over the weekend, it was announced that Jodie Whittaker will become the first female Dr. Whoin the 50 year history of the franchise.
Predictably, this ruffled the feathers of some of the show’s less enlightened fans.
On Monday, in response to the sexists complaining about Whittaker’s casting, Merriam-Webster posted this expert level burn to Twitter.
Twitter couldn’t get enough of the dictionary’s on point smack down.
Merriam-Webster even sparked a conversation about gender and language, schooling folks on both sides of theDr. Whodivide.
Come to think of it, dictionary has no gender either but when it comes to sexist Dr. Whofans, this dictionary has Jodie Whittaker’s back!
