FTM / F2M / Female to Male

FTM / F2M / Female to Male

(abbreviation / noun phrase)

These terms are usually synonymous with trans man but are sometimes used by other AFAB people to express a generalized version of their gender experience. While widely used, it is viewed by many trans people as being too focused on binary genders and reinforcing the medicalization of transgender bodies. Many trans men have never identified with being female, so using this term generally to mean trans men is discouraged.

e.g. Kevin identifies as ftm because he believes that recognizing his journey through transition in this way is important.
