What does FTM stand for?

Female to male

FTM is an acronym trans people use to communicate that they are transitioning or have transitioned from female to male. It is the same as F2M, but the LGBTQ community uses FTM more often.

People may use FTM as a noun or adjective online in web forums, when messaging, and on social media. The acronym is a quick way to say that while they were assigned the female gender at birth, they now identify on the masculine end of the gender spectrum.

An example of when you might see FTM is in a social media user's bio. Or, you might see it when messaging on a dating app when getting acquainted with a person.
