A bully is strong???

A wonderful campaign to change the definition of bully in the dictionary!

 

Current definition in several dictionaries:

bully1 n. (pl.bullies) Those who use strength or influence to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.

 

Campaign to change the wording to:

bully1 n. (pl.bullies) A person who habitually seeks to harm or intimidate those whom they perceive as vulnerable.

The online Oxford dictionary has changed this.
