Dictionary.com adds new gender-netural "Mx" prefix - and bestie, feels, fleek, sapiosexual, and kk

Dictionary.com added 150 new words, including the Mx. prefix for those who do not identify as a boy or girl. The company also added bestie, feels, fleek, sapiosexual, and kk.

The full list is on their blog.

They define Mx. as “a title of respect prefixed to a person’s surname: unlike Mr., Mrs., or Ms., it does not indicate gender and may be used by a person with any or no specific gender identity.”

Jonathan Dent, assistant editor to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), told The Sunday Times that “The title is the first new honorific to be accepted as an addition to the current set of gender identifiers.”
