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.

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 "trans-exclusive radical feminist". Terf's aren't real feminists. They don't believe that all people are equal because they exclude transgender people.
When it comes to hating TERFs I hate them the most.

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

A "trans exclusive radical 'feminist'". Aka so called feminists who don't know what's what and think transgender people are faking it or whatever. They are hateful. I hate them back.

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.
