Acronym for "Sex Worker Exclusionary Radical Feminist". A person who espouses to be a feminist but who does not believe that women engaged in ANY form of voluntary sex work should be included in the fight for equality, especially in employment or salary parity. This rabid exclusion of an entire class of women is usually a belief based on misplaced uptight morality.

a slur given to feminists who actually have empathy and know that “sexual work” isn’t voluntary in most cases, it’s actually mostly a decision taken ultimately by women that have no other way to make some money. also, even if a woman actively chooses to prostitute herself, she’s still perpetuating the idea of sexual consent as something that can be bought, what turns out as a bad image for women and then it isn’t a feminist thing. not in this world. anyway, the whole situation is completely the system and the consumer’s fault. we cannot blame a woman that had no choice or that had no idea what she’s doing was objectifying herself.
— oof there’s no place for SWERFs in feminism
— did u mean, for actual feminists that are critical of the system and know that prostitution is oppression? you’re wrong as hell

Swerf was coined by a geek in Silicon Valley. Swerf is a noun for unidentifiable organics intended for human consumption.
Ground up refrigerator hash would reasonably be called swerf. Meat loafs are swerf. Stews boiled overlong so the ingredients have disintegrated is swerf. Any organic concoction that humans may eat but they can't identify what went into making it, such as hot dogs or bologna (you don't really want to know what is in them, do you?)are swerf.
