I love being a woman who sticks up for the rights of other women and girls.

I love knowing biological reality & believing in science.

I love having logic.

I love sticking up to misogynistic men.

I love being speaking the truth!

I love being a part of a community of wonderful, hilarious, intelligent, witty, caring, amazing women who support each other.

I love being a terf.

<3

Anyone else? 🙋‍♀️

I reject the term terf and choose feminist instead, but I agree with every other sentiment.

I understand why some women here don’t want to embrace the term :) I still think it’s a slur of course when others use it toward us. People just use “terf” so negatively though, but I think being a terf is something to be proud of!

I just think it's not accurate. My feminism doesn't exclude women who attempt to escape womanhood.

I know it’s not accurate; merf is accurate though, but by now terf is already ubiquitous.

This. "Terf" was a term invented by a TIM to describe feminism because he wanted to appropriate it, implying that there were two kinds of feminism : the "right" one, which puts women's issues on the back burner while it busies itself with the wants of men, and the "wrong" kind, which puts women first and teaches them that they can say no.

"Terf" is not just a misnomer (none of us excludes TIFs, they exclude themselves... While still benefiting from progress feminists have made), it's a useless term since it's posed in opposition to libfems... Who are simply not feminists. Feminism does not center the needs and pleasure of men. That's literally its antithesis.

I've used "terf" IRL two or three times out of practicality and I don't like it. We shouldn't make concessions for TIMs and we shouldn't let them define us, not as women, and not as feminists.

After spending the entirety of last weekend with a conference room full of terfs, I couldn’t agree more. I haven’t smiled or laughed so much probably in all my life. They hate us cause they ain’t us (and never will be no matter how much they let pharma experiment on them or unethical surgeons butcher them).

I wish I could meet other terfs at conferences like this. I feel so lonely in my beliefs sometimes. Sigh

That sounds like a dream! You’re so lucky to know stunning & majestic terves in real life!!

They hate us cause they ain't us and they rage because we're right.

How appropriate! I just recut my terf bangs! 😂

I need to know what these are so I can watch for them in the wild!

Oh it's just a silly joke...TRAs seem to think that all TERFs have super short, straight-across baby bangs. So they'll often refer to them as "terf bangs" as yet another way to mock women.

Cuz, y'know, I really give a shit what some transcel keyboard warrior thinks. 💁‍♀️

Me!

I can't imagine suspending disbelief indefinitely and living in a world of denial. Thanks, no thanks. I'd rather be here.

Me too. I used to not love being a woman, I was fully on the nonbinary train before it was cool, but now that I know the most misogynistic men on earth want to be women and will never be, I couldn't be happier I have something no amount of money or power will give them. Edit: thanks terfs for showing me the way!

Yes!! I'm a radical feminist but don't give a fuck if some delusional TRA calls me a terf, it's a badge of honor at this point.
