Wikipedia: TERF (acronym)           
TERF (/tɜːrf/) is an acronym for trans-exclusionary radical feminist. First recorded in 2008, the term TERF was originally used to distinguish transgender-inclusive feminists from a group of radical feminists and social conservatives who reject the position that trans women are women, including trans women in women’s spaces, and transgender rights legislation. Trans-inclusive feminists assert that these ideas and positions are transphobic and discriminatory towards transgender people. The use of the term TERF has since broadened to include reference to people with trans-exclusionary views who are not necessarily involved with radical feminism.

Cheers to all women who got called TERF and:
- did research about the meaning
- found out how sane TERFs are
- agreed with radfem gender theory
- saw transgender in different light
- call themselves radfems now
Cheers to all the trans people for calling them TERFs!

Whoever coined “TERF = tired of explaining reality to fuckwits” deserves a statue in their honor.
I *am* tired. So very tired. Their circular arguments are dizzying.
