20 Oct Transgender man (trans man)
Posted at 08:27h in 0 Comments« Back to Glossary Index
A term used to describe someone who identifies as and is a man and was assigned female in terms of sex and gender at birth. This may be shortened to trans man. Some men who are trans identify as trans men, but not all. Others may simply identify as a man (who happens to have transitioned). Sometimes, trans men are referred to as, or FTM, an abbreviation for female-to-male, however this is not the preferred way to refer to a person who is trans as it still centres and “points out” the fact that they assigned a sex (and therefore, gender) at birth that is not who they are.
