everyone on this discourse hellsite wants to call everyone a terf which is not only immensely disingenuous but also… illogical
like racists are not inherently misogynists, homophobes are not inherently racist, ableists are not inherently classist, like… words have meanings, forms of oppression and discrimination are different, and even though many may be linked, they’re still wholly different.
terf is a term deigned specifically for trans exclusionary radical feminists. no one else. if they’re not radical feminists, they’re not terfs. if they’re not trans exclusionary, they’re not terfs. and by god if they’re not trans exclusionary radical feminists, they’re not terfs.
words have meanings. calling everyone you want to criticize a “terf” waters down the actual meaning of the word. and actually benefits terfs. so like. stop.
