Merriam-Webster Just Perfectly Trolled Sexist "Doctor Who" Fans

Merriam-Webster needed only six words to shut down sexist Dr. Who fans who complained about the show's latest casting announcement.

Over the weekend, it was announced that Jodie Whittaker will become the first female Dr. Who in the 50 year history of the franchise.

Predictably, this ruffled the feathers of some of the show's less enlightened fans.

In other words, this:

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 the Dr. Who divide.

Come to think of it, dictionary has no gender either but when it comes to sexist Dr. Who fans, this dictionary has Jodie Whittaker's back!
