What’s a TERF?
Thanks for the answers. So I’m trying to understand the term in the context of those boys winning that girls track meet a couple years ago.
Is this a correct understanding: TERFs would say while those boys identified as girls, they aren’t really females and shouldn’t have been in the meet. Cis-TERFs in contrast would say that boys identifying as girls makes them female, so they have every right to compete in a girl’s meet.
Do I have that right?

I don't think I've heard the term cis-TERF before. You have the TERF right. I think those feminists who say that boys who want to be girls ARE in fact girls are just called feminists, because apparently that is the feminist platform. Which makes zero sense and does not at all aid women in any way, but it is what it is.

Trans-exclusionary radical feminist is an insulting term used to refer to feminists
who have the “radical” notion that a man saying he identifies as a woman doesn’t actually make him a woman. TERFs tend to believe people who are biologically and legally men shouldn’t be allowed to participate in women’s sports or go into women’s toilets.
