Can we stop saying TERF?

Yes, JKR blows when it comes to her views on transwomen. Catch up here if you missed the controversy (imagine I said it all British-like with an accent on the second syllable):

Let’s find a better label/insult to delineate her shitty views. I had to look up what TERF means: Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist. I hate that term because it implies that you can deny the gender of transwomen and still be considered a feminist. No. If you aren’t intersectional in terms of gender identity (or race, for that matter), you aren’t truly a feminist. Feminism, by definition, is about respecting the equality and rights of all people, regardless of their sex.

From Merriam Webster:



fem·​i·​nism | \ ˈfe-mə-ˌni-zəm \

Definition of feminism

1 : the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes

2 : organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests

You fellow Potter-nerds are a smart, creative lot. Let’s come up with something better than TERF.
