so TERF was a term that was obviously coined by trans women and a lot of people know it as meaning “trans exclusionary radical feminist” (and i did too until just recently) but it originally stood for “trans exterminatory radical feminist” and TERFs changed the meaning of it to make it sound less horrible
so in case you needed more reason to hate TERFs there you go have some blatant silencing of trans women
I know that this post is serious, but it makes me laugh, and I honestly thought it was sarcasm until I saw who on my dash reblogged it.
Is it lost on these people that TERF is in itself used to silence women? That this is a term that was coined to discredit and distort radical feminist ideology?
But whatever, assuming the E stands for “exclusionary” (which I did long before anyone even explained it to me) is totally something people should be hated for.
