What does Terf Mean?
A Terf is described as a feminist who excludes the rights of transgender women from their advocacy of women’s rights.
How It Started
It all started after a recent interview with Piers Morgan. Macy said,
“I will say this, and everyone’s gonna hate me, but as a woman, just because you change your (body) parts doesn’t make you a woman, sorry.”
Piers asked, “Right, you feel that?” Macy doubled down, saying, “I know that for a fact.”
The singer also told Piers that she doesn’t think anyone should be labeled transphobic just because they disagree.

Actress Bette Midler’s Comment
In the other hand, Actress Bette Midler hopped on Twitter to table her opinion.
“WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives, and even of our name! They don’t call us ‘women’ anymore; they call us ‘birthing people’ or ‘menstruators, and even people with vaginas’! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!”

Most people felt Macy wasn’t wrong. Folks on Twitter dragged her.
One tweeted, “Everything going on in the world right now, and Macy Gray decides to use her platform to instead call out people who are already oppressed and attempt to invalidate them.”
Another tweeted, “Macy Gray is so desperate for a coin she’s appearing on Piers Morgan and singing weddings on ‘Real Housewives’ episodes. No wonder she’s mad! Terf a*s.”
