FTOM – Female TO Male (transgender)

The US Marines have their “first” openly transgender individual. Now a HE. The gentleman’s name is Lance Cpl. Aaron Wixson according to an article found here.

It’s always confusing to me when they write about transgendered people.

So I thought we should use this FTOM or MTOW acronym. Helps me out anyway.

But then what becomes more confusing is asking do we now make it GLBFTOMMTOW instead of GLBT?

Gotta be all inclusive ya know. Oh and I forgot the Q.

The article states this about TS – Transgender Surgeries:

“The cost could range from $2.4 million and $8.4 million, an amount that would represent an ‘exceedingly small proportion’ of total health care expenditures”

“Last Friday, he wore female Dress Blues to the gala at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California. But next year, Wixson hopes to trade in the female uniform for the iconic Dress Blues worn by men.”

Awesome!

But really now, can’t we all just get along back to just saying GAY?
