Short for terpenes, which is found in the oily residue of plants, most notably the cannabis plant. It provides the unique smell and taste to each strain of marijuana; such as limonene and humulene found in the potent Sour Diesel.
The terps in this Sour Diesel smell spicy like gasoline but taste deliciously citrus.

The terps have won national championships in several sports including football, men's basketball, women's basketball, women's lacrosse, men's lacrosse, field hockey, men's soccer, and competitive cheerleading.

3.A fan of University of Maryland sports. Ranked #1 college sports fans in the country in 2005 by Princeton Review. Notorious for wearing red, being loud, rubbing Testudo's nose, starting riots, and chanting "F-ck You JJ" during basketball games, which brought them national attention in 2004.
Those terps sure are looking good this year.

Trans-Exlusionary Radical People. Meninist and radical Feminist that believe gender is a social construct force upon people at birth. The term evolved from TERF to drive home a point that if a radical feminist was born a male they would be as misogynistic and oppressive as the very men they are trying to fight. Men, Trans activist, and liberal feminist use the term "TERP" because the principle of maninism and radical feminism cannot coexist with gender equality & trans ideology.
TERP Labels radical feminist together with meninist to show that if they were born a man their attitudes would make them as oppressive as the social constructs they are trying to change.

radical feminist: You can't possible understand our struggles! You benefit from male privilege!
Transwoman: We have our own struggles that you and Men cannot understand! That attitude makes you a TERP! We need equality for the full gender spectrum!
