Re: Make up your own definition.

Who is it a crime against?

To discuss who it is a crime against is to acknowledge it is a crime.
Crimes with victims and 'victimless' crimes are, by definition, crimes.

The definition of 'a crime' requiring a victim is only used by criminals who can't accept that what they are doing is a crime.
If our actions are a breach of criminal law then we have committed a crime and are therefore criminals.

Dictionary wise...

Well, one can always make up the meaning of words...

One might reject a definition for reasons other than an inability to accept it.

True.
