What is a radfem?

A radical feminist

A radfem is a person who subscribes to radical feminism. Generally, they view society as a patriarchy that oppresses women through various means, including violence, sexual objectification, and limited gender roles.

You will most likely see radfem online, especially on social sites like Twitter, TikTok, and Reddit. Additionally, radfems hold somewhat controversial beliefs, so you will typically encounter arguments between conservatives and liberals about radfems.

For example, you might see a radfem argue with a conservative on Twitter about the injustices against women of color in the American judicial system. Or, proponents of tradwives might argue with radfems about female liberation in a subreddit.
