    I actually perisonally encountered a TERF like Nicki in the women’s centre where i live. it was really frightening. what she said made me cry. I have not gone back since, because i don’t know what would happen.

      Stay safe. T(W)ERFs are dangerous and violent people, so you best avoid them. Maybe ignore her and befriend other people and tell them about the truth (that T(W)ERFs are proponents of a hateful reactionary/right-wing ideology that harms trans women and other trans people, but also is damaging to the LGBTQIAP community as a whole and entirely anti-feminist).

      Take care and all the best to you.
