I received an email message from Merriam-Webster today. Here is what it read:
"Thank you for your message regarding the definition of "pimp." We agree that the current definition is in need of updating and are researching the matter further. We expect the definition to be changed when the dictionary is next revised. Thank you again for helping to bring this matter to our attention
Merriam-Webster Editorial Department"
So there it is! Now, we have to find out when the new edition will be coming out, What the new definition will say, and when the online definition can be changed, but WE HAVE DONE IT!!! Not sure if I should mark my petition as a VICTORY until we see what the definition is. Merriam-Webster has heard us and has given us their word that the definition will be changed! Thank you all so much! I will continue to follow up with them to get more information! I am so proud that we have hit this mark!
