The term Coercively Assigned Female at Birth describes people who were assigned the female gender at birth by medical professionals without consent. This classification is typically given after an assessment of the genitals. The term is also commonly used to describe anyone whose genitals were surgically altered to appear more feminine after birth as with many intersex individuals.
The term Coercively Assigned Female at Birth is similar to Female Assigned at Birth. However, this term places more emphasis on the gender classification coming from an external force rather than the individual's feelings of personal identity.
Coercively Assigned Female at Birth is often shortened to the acronym CAFAB.
