On the the right side of the page there are links where you can ask for clarifications, submit terms you'd like to see here, or look at up terms in alphabetical order.
If you would like to propose an edit, all you have to do is ask. You can also suggest ask that a term be defined or you can submit a term and its definition on your own.
Posts describing identities (e.g. gender, sexual orientation, etc.) are not definitive. This dictionary should not be used to tell someone how they should identify.

CAFAB is an acronym. It stands for Coercively Assigned Female At Birth. Nearly synonymous with FAAB, though when used by Intersex people it illustrates more clearly that the assignment was made without involving the person whose sex was being assigned (and may have involved surgical modifications).
