“Bully” has become a buzz word that people have weaponized. Every conflict has become an example of bullying. Every person with a strong opinion is a bully. Definition of Bullying from the American Psychological Association: Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another person injury or discomfort. Bullying can take the form of physical contact, words, or more subtle actions. http://www.apa.org/topics/bullying/ Some definitions are limited to physical threats to force people to do what they want. Or define it as having power or taking power over another. I find this to be a very limited and obvious definition. A definition including “intentionally" and “repeatedly" causing injury or emotional distress is more specific and covers more instances.
