Remember when everything WASNâ€™T political all of the time? Those were the days, right? You could watch football, a movie, read a book, heck even look something up in the Dictionary without being hit in the face with all things political â€¦
And then we had to walk uphill both ways barefoot in the snow. GET OFF OUR LAWN.
Ok, so maybe weâ€™re getting cynical but câ€™mon, when our â€˜resourcesâ€™ are getting political itâ€™s time to take a step back, doncha think?
For example, look at this.
Acting. The profession or activity of those who perform in stage plays, motion pictures, etc.

OMG, WE GET IT. They zinged Fox News over Jamie Lee Curtis â€¦ so edgy.
Just define words already, Dictionary.
Dictionary. A bookâ€¦or online lexical resource (such as https://t.co/ZWXuxLkBCJ) containing a selection of the words of a language, giving information about their meanings.
Activism. The practice of vigorous action as a means of achieving political or other goals. https://t.co/CNJkfKsPaE

Many thanks to Ben Shapiro for doing Dictionary.comâ€™s job since apparently, theyâ€™re far too busy trolling conservatives on Twitter to do it themselves.
Having a woke dictionary is getting old. https://t.co/8QVI1sjJKL

Can we get a different edition?
Maybe we should just get an Encyclopedia and call it good.
A dictionary isnâ€™t a political activist.

Didnâ€™t used to be.
Also knowm as loud mouths who profess to know more about economics, politics, and life in general.

tfw you can't even expect a dictionary to be objective.

In other words, nearly all things 2018.
No one is actually going to https://t.co/SKAywdI16N and looking up "acting"
