TERFs – or trans-exclusionary radical feminists – is an internet buzzword that recently rose from obscurity and found itself increasingly in newspaper headlines, TV shows and mainstream discussion. Pretty much shorthand for ‘transphobic bigot’, the acronym refers people who preaches hate and exclusion against transgender women in the name of feminism. Their message attempts to deny trans people basic human rights, from access to healthcare to access to women’s spaces, and attack their identity. The quarrel has spiked following government plans to consult on reforming the Gender Recognition Act (GRA), which could allow transgender people to self-declare their gender and reflect that “being trans is not an illness”.
