    Most are not. TERFs are on the fringe.

    If you think a woman is just an idea in a man's head, or a social construct, you cannot be a feminist. Therefore ALL actual feminists are "TERFs."

    Note that TERF is inaccurate because they believe transmen are women and part of feminism. They're male-exclusionary.

    Because we are sick of everyone's goddamn whining.

    They aren't.  You know, there's a load more stuff going on adversely affecting women than the trans issue, like period poverty, domestic violence, the glass ceiling, reproductive rights, FGM, you name it.  The focus on trans, whether you're inclusive or exclusive, strikes me as a convenient way for organisations like the Alliance Defending Freedom and its backhanded funding of gender-critical sympathetic campaigning along with trying to ban gay marriage and abortion to drive a wedge between marginalised groups and sow dissent among them.

    Does it matter? Why do people have to believe false claims about transgenders anyway?

    They aren't.

    Looking for any reputable (peer reviewed) source saying they are.

    If youve actually met a TERF and not go by what extremists call TERFs you would know most feminsts are not TERFs.
