“Wow - 1972 wants its word of the year back.” “At least it’s a real word and it’s not things like ‘shade’ or ‘slays’ or some other stupid millennial term.” Yahoo Newsroom readers share their thoughts on Merriam-Webster’s word of the year, “feminism.”
“Feminism” has been in the top 10 for the past few years. According to Merriam-Webster, it’s been a big year for the word. Lookups for “feminism” increased 70 percent and spiked several times after key events. Still, some Yahoo readers think other words deserve the coveted title. One user wrote, “Shocking covfefe didn’t make the list.”
