BunnyBop, could you quickly define "non-terf" for me if you have the time? I have language issues and don't want to waste thoughts' time, much less accidentally hurt anyone with my ignorance before I have a chance to learn how to do better.

TERF is an acronym for "Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists." In this case, "non-terf" simply refers to sources that aren't transphobic.

Much obliged.

thoughts, I'm afraid most of what I probably saved was TERF so the best I could do was my own possibly irrelevant words.

Non-terf would refer to someome who is not a trans exclusionary radical feminist. Someone who believes trans women are real women and trans men are real men, ect. Terfs believe trans women oppress cis women, so a non-terf wouldn't believe that.
