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.

Me: Hey Jenna, what’s a TERF?

Jenna: Read J.K. Rowling’s latest tweets.

Me: ***reads tweets*** Ah... that makes sense! She says “No Trans Rights!”

A group of women that, belong to a vagina cult and believe that if you were a woman and are now a man, you are disgusting and have taken the easy way out of avoiding the oppression of the patriarchy. Or if you are a man that is now a woman you are similarly disgusting and are trying to infiltrate the cult. They are the main reason feminism has such a bad name.
Person 1: “hey Timmy you look sad what’s up”

Timmy: “ I went to a feminism rally was verbally assaulted by this random woman who said I couldn’t be here because I have ‘betrayed my fellow sisters’”

Person 1: “wow they must be a real piece of shit judging you for doing something they should be supportive of”

Timmy: “it was just a terf though so I can’t let it affect me”

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
Radical Feminists are inappropriately named TERFS to silence any female centered discussion

The least based subset of feminists of all time. It's an acronym for Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists, but there's nothing radical or feminist about them. Unironic misandrists who don't let their hatred of men stop at just men; they see trans women as villains and trans men as lost lesbian sisters.
A: Bro JK Rowling is really on her terf madness again
B: During pride month, a pandemic, and a global human rights movement?
