A 34-year-old man has pleaded guilty to threatening to bomb and shoot up the offices of the dictionary maker Merriam-Webster. Jeremy David Hanson of California threatened the company’s offices in New York City and Springfield, Massachusetts, after it updated its definitions of “girl,” “woman,” “trans woman” and other gender terms. Meanwhile, a Massachusetts woman has been arrested for making a false bomb threat against Boston Children’s Hospital. The hospital has come under attack recently by right-wing groups for establishing the first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program in the United States.
