"Female-to-Male", an adjective sometimes used to describe trans men (people who were assigned female at birth but live and identify as men, and sometimes transition medically), or their transitions. The term is sometimes used as a noun ("an FTM"), but today this is generally considered inappropriate, as it reduces trans men to their medical transitions, whereas "trans man" simply denotes a man who also happens to be trans.

A transgender man, short for female-to-male. Considered incorrect by some, because it implies that trans men were originally women, which is considered a cissexist notion.
Person 1: He's FTM trans?
Person 2: He doesn't like the term FTM, just use trans man.
