See "archaic".

The far-and-away most understood definition of fairy is that of a winged, fey pixie, not of a male homosexual; likewise, the far-and-away most understood definition of **** is "sexual penetration without consent", not "to plunder".

So why does, in your example, the minority meaning get to hold sway, but not in my example?
The only thing moronic is the notion that someone's indignation should get to overwrite what the dictionary says a word means.
