(noun phrase / acronym)

Coercively assigned [gender] at birth. This term refers to what birth assignment is given to intersex people and reflect the specific way that intersex people are coerced medically into the gender binary. These are intersex specific terms. Endosex people, until shown evidence otherwise, should use the related acronyms AFAB and AMAB.

e.g. Kasey uses the term CAMAB because of the invasive medical “intervention” the doctor decided to undertake at their birth.
