More About Female to Male (FTM)
Transgendered individuals typically do not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth. Some people who were born with female features and genitalia identify as being male, and likewise some people born “male” identify as female. Once a transgendered person undergoes reassignment surgery, terms like FTM are used to categorize the particular gender transition that took place.
