We use “FTM” as shorthand for a spectrum that includes not just transsexuals, but anyone
who was assigned “female” at birth and who identifies as male, masculine, or a man some or all of the time. Some non-transsexuals in the FTM spectrum (androgynous people, butches, drag kings, bi-gender and multi-gender people, etc.) may also want hormone therapy, and
may not identify or live as men. For this reason we use the term FTM instead of “trans men”.
