Cambridge Dictionary changes definitions of ‘male,’ ‘female’ to include transgender people

12/13/2022 | The Washington Times

The definitions of “man” and “woman” have been altered in the Cambridge Dictionary in order to be inclusive of transgender people. While both words still contain their primary definitions — being either “an adult male/female human being” — their secondary definitions are now “an adult who lives and identifies as male/female though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth.” Examples for both secondary definitions include references to transgender identity.
