What does AFAB mean?

AFAB stands for Assigned Female At Birth, where a person’s gender was given by the genitalia found at birth giving a person a sex or gender marker on their birth certificate.

Using this acronym could be used to describe a person’s former gender identity – used in the case where the person now lives as non-binary or as part of the trans community or a factual status on a woman’s gender identity.
