I'm not asking why something came to be or why something is called what. I'm asking you a simple question, who determines the definition and how is it validated?

You do realize that those are two different questions right? Why something is illegal is different from who determines it illegal. Murder is illegal because you don't have the right to take someone's life. Lawmakers are the ones who determine if murder is legal or not.
Hence why a woman who has an abortion isn't committing murder, yet if a pregnant woman is killed, it's a double homicide. Hence why capital punishment isn't illegal, yet you killing your friend because he took your ipod without your permission is illegal. Lawmakers are the ones who determine if murder via self-defense is justified or not, not you. You just can't say "self-defense" and everything be ok. Likewise, just because you call yourself a woman, doesn't make you a woman. The "why" is not the same as "who determines it".
So, unless you can determine the approving authority of what *** is what, you have no grounds to argue the accuracy of any claims.
