i’m confused about the “Please don’t use ftm or mtf in your ask” because a lot of people (including myself) use those terms to describe themselves and it feels weird that they are banned from being used on your blog.
you can use those labels to describe your gender if you want but they can trigger other people’s dysphoria. that’s the only reason why we don’t want it to be used. calling a trans person who is trans fem or a trans woman male can trigger their dysphoria. those terms also suggest that trans people were the gender they were assigned at birth when they’ve always been the gender they id as. amab or afab are better.
