Acronym describing feminists who are “Tired of Explaining Reality to Fools”. These women clearly took good in-class notes and got good grades in high school biology. They know that the fallacy of “gender identity” promotes stereotypes that subjugate women to categories that feminists have tried to dissolve for decades.
Fool: “My daughter doesn’t like to wear dresses and doesn’t play with dolls. My daughter must be my trans son.”

TERF: “Maybe your daughter is just a tomboy.”

TERF: “Her chromosomal make-up shows Y-chromosomes. That makes you a biological male.”

Fool: “No it doesn’t, TERF! The internet and social media prove you’re wrong.”

True Earnest Real Females
Trans folk tend to really hate these people not because they are inflicting violence against them, but simply because they are honest with themselves and how they see things.

Trans-Exclusive “Radical” Feminism. A very outdated, populist-identitarian ideology that defines gender “woman” as a derivative of biological “reality” and is focused on fabricating narratives centered around an enclosed identity (of victimhood). It claims to be radical, but in actuality it is even less radical than liberalism that it criticizes. Overall it’s just pure trash. TERF IS NOT A SLUR. TERF is a fair and appropriate name for a certain tendency. And nobody should take TERFs seriously.
TERF: don’t call me a TERF you sexist prick

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?
A: Yes :(
