I understand that’s where the term originates from (second-wave feminism’s obsession with things like ‘phallocentrism’, compared to third-wave feminism’s rejection of the concept), but when I see people like J.K. Rowling being called TERFs it infuriates me a bit. She’s not a TERF, she’s a transphobic liberal feminist at best. But when people say ‘x isn’t a TERF’, they think you mean ‘x isn’t transphobic’. I Am A June Girl I Was Born With My Heart On Sleeve A Fire In My Soul T-Shirt Words change meanings; an acronym that’s become divorced from its origins in order to more easily be used as a descriptor and an insult is going to change even faster. Just recognize that different definitions exist and do your best to clarify. That’s all you can do. Pretty much anyone who uses a gloss of “concern for the (cis) women” to cover up virulent transphobia is going to be called a TERF.

various articles disagree but tbh i totally understand where you’re coming from. it’s because they know how to present themselves. take for instance, JK Rowling. she ticks all the boxes for radfem but she’s presentable enough because she knows to punch where it hurts. i made a post some time ago detailing the overlap between JKR and radical feminism. I’ll try to look for it. nevertheless it’s also important to note that people can debate about the meaning of each schools of feminism but like the other person has said, i don’t agree with gatekeeping radical feminism and TERF, I Am A June Girl I Was Born With My Heart On Sleeve A Fire In My Soul T-Shirt even though i do identify a lot of terfs as radfems. gatekeeping terf/radfem is not a productive process and you obviously can’t control how people identify themselves. not to mention, radical feminism itself is still broad.

Why wouldn’t the homophobia rattle you? Also I hate people defending the whole all men are trash thing all it does is give fuel for the other side to be like: SEE! I knew they were awful! There definitely are a lot of femcels on Reddit too. It’s really unfortunate that incels and femcels are just so…jaded? The entire mantra is the exact same, just with the genders flipped. Yes, they probably had people who actually hurt them. That’s a legitimate shame but on the same merit… Men who are rich and perfect looking, who also happen to be willing to bend over backwards for their every whim. Of course, I Am A June Girl I Was Born With My Heart On Sleeve A Fire In My Soul T-Shirt the thought has crossed my mind that FDS is nothing more than a bunch of incels pretending to be women to smear the greater reputation of feminism
