Excuse me for my stupid question, but what does terf mean?
Transmisogynist exterminationist “radical” feminist or trans exterminationist radical feminist.
A more accurate version is trans woman exterminationist feminist because they’re trying to exterminate trans women. The first phrasing is pretty awkward tbh.
But it’s become more of a word than an acronym I’ve noticed. It describes cis women who, through some fucked up rehash of second wave radfem politics, have come to the conclusion that trans women ought to be pushed out of women only spaces, aren’t truly women (using weasel words like female and male), don’t belong in lesbian spaces if lesbian and really out to be pushed out of existence as some kind of appropriation of womanhood.
They wrote the book on denial of medical care to trans women, literally, they wrote a book and the government uses it still.
They’re scum and violent and they should absolutely die. They’re on the level of westboro baptist church. Some of the worst of transmisogynists out there.
A lot of them are going underground now that the liberalization of transmisogyny is going full swing and hating trans women is becoming more a subtle liberal art more than a blatant and socially acceptable way to roll.
