Merriam-Webster Trolls Kellyanne Conway With Definition Of 'Feminism'

Dictionary knows best.

The Merriam-Webster Twitter account has claimed its newest victim: Counselor to President Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway

On Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Conway ― a woman whose career has greatly benefited from the work feminists have donesaid that she is “not about” identifying as a feminist. But Conway seems to be a bit confused about what the word actually means.

“For me, it’s difficult to call myself a feminist in the classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male,” she said. “And it certainly is very pro-abortion in this context. And I’m not anti-male or pro-abortion.”

However, Merriam-Webster was quick to rectify her misunderstanding. The dictionary tweeted the following on Thursday afternoon:

Feminism, the tweet reads, is: “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.”

Boom.
