It defeats the new words such as "gender pay gap", "ecocide" (destruction of the natural environment of an area, or very great damage to it), and "no-platforming" (the practice of refusing someone an opportunity to make their ideas or beliefs known publicly, because you think these beliefs are dangerous or unacceptable).
