Hefemale is a reclaimed slur for male/masculine individuals who have a vagina. Although it is used in a dehumanizing and fetishizing manner as a transphobic, altersexist, and intersexist slur, it has been reclaimed by some transmasculine individuals who want to keep their vagina (TM-Altguina), intersex folk with masculine appearances and a vagina, and/or AMAB men or non-binary people who want bottom surgery (AMAB-V). This term is most often used as a slur against intersex, altersex, and transmasculine sex workers.
Besides its reclaimed use, it should not be used on any individual, especially those who have not reclaimed this term. No individual should use the slur unless they themselvf have the right to reclaim it. The term should only be reclaimed by those who have a male or masculine gender, are AFAB or intersex, and desire to keep their vagina.
The earliest findable use of the term was on August 26th of 2009 by Negsaso on Urban Dictionary. It has since been used in dehumanizing manners and pornography, however it is not as commonly used as terms such as c*ntboy and shemale within porn, which are two other transphobic, intersexist, and altersexist slurs.
