    hey giselle,
    dictionary meaning of bully is "It involves repeated acts over time attempting to create or enforce one person's (or group's) power over another person (or group)".

    its just means that someone who has an intention of hurting by means of making fun or beating.

    A bully is one who is to be thrashed instantly.  It should have instant effect, like instant coffee.  Good tonic for brats.

    A bully ..My definition of a bully is that they are out and out COWARDS....SCUM ,and they need to be dealt with before they cause the person they are bullying  permanent damage both physicaly and mentaly .
    My son suffered at the hands of bullies for most of his school life and didnt tell us, the bulying continued after he left school but by then we were aware of it as it stretched to us as well...we dealt with it , it was sorted we forgave him all the hurt he had caused and just a few years ago the bully was killed in a motor accident.

    BULLIES ARE COWARDS.....most get their comeuppance in the end

    Just learned about this in a conference for teachers!  In short, a bully repeatedly bothers a person with the intentions of harming (emotionally and/or physically) another person.  The person being bullied should feel bullied, offended and harmed by the bully's actions.  The bully is superior to the person being bullied in some way (physically, mentally, as far as status or popularity is concerned, etc.).

    Someone who uses their power of intimidation to keep others standing still or cowering down, while masking their own fears and insecurities.

    But, I do know, that the loudest voice is not the strongest voice.  Intestinal fortitude is not decided by who can shout the loudest.

    Bully for you! This oxymoron of a phrase when stated has a tone of sarcasm attached giving meaning of being negatively congratulated or cheered on with an accompanied smirk. What makes people respond in this way?Psychiatrists have stated that sarcasm is judgement, poisoned by hidden anger being released. read more
