Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist. That group of feminists that claims that trans women aren't really women, as biological determinism is only a fallacy when it used against them, not when they use it against others.
Isn't it mindboggling that the Royal College of Psychiatrists would invite a TERF like Julie Bindel to come talk at a study day on transgenderism and transsexuality? That's like inviting Fred Phelps to come deliver the keynote at a gay pride.

Plural of TERF.

Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists. That group of feminists that claims that trans women aren't really women, as biological determinism is only a fallacy when it used against them, not when they use it against others.
Western Feminism has killed trans women. With books and writings by TERFs like Mary Daly and Janice Raymond, feminism in the west has resulted in the denial of necessary medical care to ungodly numbers of trans women, especially transitional surgeries, hormones and aid. Denial of access to resources for trans women rape survivors, abuse survivors and the homeless and impoverished. Which resulted in deaths. Horrifying numbers of deaths.

Trans-Exlusionary Radical Feminist. Originally just named radical feminism. The basis of radical feminism is that gender is a social construct forced upon people at birth and are roles specifically designed to keep women subordinate to men (masculinity vs.feminity). Men, Trans activist, and liberal feminist use the term "TERF" because the principle of radical feminism cannot coexist with gender/trans ideology
TERF is usually thrown at any woman who express a female centered opionion or whose opinion is out of line with gender ideology. And of course, diversity of opinion is bad and liberals will silence you immediately with the term TERF to justify your harrassment, beating, and raping. All in the name of progressiveness

A slur used by liberal feminists, men's rights activists, and trans activists to silence anyone (but especially women) who is critical of gender roles and the ensuing domination. Replaces: cunt, dyke, bitch. Is used when someone connects biology (vagina) to sex (female) and the rights of the class called women. Stands for "Trans exclusionary radical feminist", which is a misnomer and not a self-chosen label.
I'm a trans woman and I'm more of a woman than any TERF.
