TERF in it's literal abbreviation means- "trans exclusionary radical feminist".

It's mostly used by Trans people and especially TRA's (Troons) - Trans right activists as a cop out and silencing tactic towards anyone that dares to question any part of gender identity politics/ideology. It's rarely used accurately and no research is carried out by the TRA to even distinguish whether the accused is even a feminist, never mind a, "radical feminist". It's so overused and thrown about that it's lost any real meaning. The majority of people simply view TERF as meaning- "anyone that questions or disagress with any factor of gender identity politics/idealism".

It officially fits the definition of a slur as it's consistently used in an aggressive and derogatory manner in order to slander and victimise anyone that doesn't fully comply with gender identity. TRA's and Troons are known for making violent and threatening statements against those they label TERF's. Evidence of such can be seen in mass by searching TERF is a slur. Link will show.

TRA'S smugly believe they're accomplishing some great feat by calling people this, but due to it being null and void, generally those accused don't really care or feel any effect from it. In fact, just like "Queer" and other previous slurs, it's in the process of being reclaimed and worn as a badge of honour due to the fact that the accused made it so that a TRA had to resort to a cop out instead of providing any logical or factual rebuttal.

Guy: "yeh...sorry but trans women don't have periods. It's the shedding of the uterus."

TRA: "fck you TERF!!!! Yes they do!!!"

Guy: "a what? I'm not a feminist...at all. I'm just stating a biological fact"

TRA: "yeh whatever TERF, and its not a fact at all, trans women can have periods"

Guy: "again, I'm not a feminist, and no they can't, a period requires a uterus, only females have uteruses, so how can they have a period?"

TRA: "I don't care TERF, and no that's not all that a period is, trans women get sore stomachs and diarrhoea"

Guy: "umm.. so do I when I eat the wrong thing, its still not a period. A period is the shedding of the uterus lining, not a sore stomach or the runs"

TRA: "trans women are women. TERF!!!"

Guy: "I...I'm talking about female bodily functions, trans women are still biologically male?"

TRA: "you fucking evil TERF!!! Show your face now!!!! Where do you work TERF??"
