    Retard threatens violence after Merriam-Webster updates definition of "Woman"

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/man-bomb-m...ry?id=90054230

    “Boys aren’t girls, and girls aren’t boys … I will assassinate your top editor.”

    A disgruntled man upset about Merriam-Webster dictionary’s update to their definitions of gender pronouns and adjectives to make them more fluid has pleaded guilty in a federal court to making bomb threats and for threatening to kill the company’s employees in a mass shooting.

    The U.S. Attorney’s in the District of Massachusetts alleges that Jeremy David Hanson, 34, of Rossmoor, CA, anonymously sent “various threatening messages and comments demonstrating bias against specific gender identities submitted through its website’s ‘Contact Us’ page and in the comments section on its webpages that corresponded to the word entries for ‘Girl’ and ‘Woman,’” between the dates of Oct. 2 and Oct. 8, 2021. Authorities later identified the user as Hanson.

    “Specifically, on Oct. 2, 2021, Hanson used the handle ‘@anonYmous’ to post the following comment on the dictionary’s website definition of ‘female:’ ‘It is absolutely sickening that Merriam-Webster now tells blatant lies and promotes anti-science propaganda. There is no such thing as ‘gender identity.’ The imbecile who wrote this entry should be hunted down and shot,’” authorities said in the statement.

    A short time later, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Hanson sent them another message, this time via the “Contact Us” page on their website.

    “You [sic] headquarters should be shot up and bombed. It is sickening that you have caved to the cultural Marxist, anti-science … agenda and altered the definition of ‘female’ as part of the Left’s efforts to corrupt and degrade the English language and deny reality,” the second online threat read in part. “It would be poetic justice to have someone storm your offices and shoot up the place.”

    A third threat was sent to Merriam-Webster as a comment on their website on Oct. 8, 2021 which read: “I am going to shoot up and bomb your offices for lying and creating fake definitions,” the message said. “Boys aren’t girls, and girls aren’t boys … I will assassinate your top editor.”

    Following these specific and credible threats, Merriam-Webster closed its offices in Springfield, MA, as well as in New York City for five days.

    Hanson also admitted in court this week that he often selected the object of his threatening communications because of the “gender, gender identity and/or sexual orientation of various persons,” said the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

    “Every member of our community has a right to live and exist authentically as themselves without fear. Hate motivated threats of violence that infringe upon that right are not tolerated in Massachusetts in any capacity,” said United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins. "This conviction represents my office’s dedication to protecting targeted communities and bringing accountability and justice when those who aim to endanger act upon their hatred.”

    “Jeremy Hanson is now a convicted felon after admitting to making hate-fueled threats of violence related to the LGBTQ+ community,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. “If you believe you are a victim or a witness to similar conduct, we encourage you to report it to the FBI so we can hold the perpetrators behind these crimes accountable for their actions, like we did in this case.”

    Hanson is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 5, 2023.
    I really don't get the anti-trans/anti-LGBTQ crowd

    Seems like they can't decide if trans ideology is a ridiculous sideshow or a serious threat to civilization

    If you have a brain, you realize that trans ideology actually reinforces the male/female binary and traditional gender norms

    Sounds like a dipshit

    Most people arent conscious of the fact that words arent the thing they point at. Words just point to a thing weve cut out for the sake of communication. Everyones so concerned with words and semantics to the point of neuroticism.

    Theres an old saying, a fish trap exist because of the fish, once youve gotten the fish you can forget the trap

    And its saying the message is more important than the words. Dont fuss over the trap(the words) once you have the message(fish)

    And i think thats so true and largely how i speak

    Everyone wants to be a word these days, instead of being the thing the word points at
    Outwardly there is cronological time. The mind has applied this internally, it says, logically there is time its obvious. So then the mind thinks within time. I am a little depressed now, but i will get to a state of non depression later. The now and later is the time. Takes time to get from here to there. This is also creating a duality. Two things. I am this(the now), i will be that(the later). Simple things like this make you believe in theres a me controlling the thinking.

    These companies need to be checked and stop this bullshit. Threatening violence isn’t the right way to go about it, but they are pretending biology isn’t real

    he's not wrong, but anyone who posts threats of terrorism/violence is an absolute retard who deserves to get screwed by the glowing ones.
    Theories about rights, freedom, and dignity are dangerous, however - dangerous to tyrannies of all kinds, of ignorance, superstition, poverty, and the rest.

    I just don't understand how monomaniacal and angry ppl get about this issue.

    I've always felt like cultural issues regarding sex were used as a stress relief ball and diverted frustration away from economic issues

    IIRC "masturbation hysteria" was a thing in the run up to the Great Depression

    well, inversely there are those folks out there these days that are hyper focused on sex, that develop a fetish, and masterbate innapropriately(wrong times/turn it into some manipulation game) to weird played out fantasies

    i call em hysterical masterbators. Because theyre hysterical about their fetish and will manipulate others so they can have a wank.

    Louie was a hysterical masterbator

    and a few yrs ago we had a hysterical masterbator at our office who eventually ended up at another studio and got caught wanking at work.

    it applies to both sides, like ppl freaking out over you being a "transphobe" for pointing out biological barriers.

    yes, it seems sexual hangups are a pressure valve for more substantive issues. the US economy is definitely a mess right now, with supply chain issues, hyperinflation, and a new Cold War brewing.
