Female to Male

From BDSM Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A person who was assigned to the binary gender of female at birth and identifies as male.

A person who identifies as FtM may or may not pursue medical interventions as a component of their gender transition. Such persons may not wish to undergo medical procedures. However, this decision does not invalidate their status as FtM.

Ask for their pronouns and make a sincere effort to gender them correctly in conversation. Remember, it is considered rude to ask about the status of their medical history unless it is relevant to the current conversation. Upon meeting a cisgender person, for example, would it be appropriate to immediately interrogate them about their genitals? Probably not.
