Why do more people tend to notice MTFs instead of FTMs? Mostly toxic masculinity imo...
Most FTMs can scoot by without being noticed if they want to "blend in" since it's more accepted to want to be a guy than it is a masculine presenting person wanting to be a woman. I mean, how many jokes in media have you seen when the punchline is "lol, man in dress" yet you barely see anything joking about "lol, woman in pants and short hair"? Not very many, sure they're still around but not as frequently. I'm ftm, so my view on the subject might be biased. Someone might look at a feminine body type wearing more masculine clothing but most people dismiss it as some woman who's being a "tomboy" but when a masculine figure wears something remotely feminine, you suddenly hear talk of "perverting the youth", "Man in dress wants to just be allowed to go into the women's restroom to assault women and girls!!" and other transphobic nonsense. Sometimes, people might complain about ftms or "tomboys" being in more feminine spaces, one instance I could think of was a butch woman who had officers called on her when she entered the women's restroom with her friends. Imagine two male officers trying to drag a woman out of the women's restroom even though her friends are yelling at them to leave and that she's a woman? She was a cis woman yet she was STILL treated like that because of how she was presenting, which is absolutely ridiculous.
Our rigid definition of each sex and how people born into those sexes must act or present themselves is absolutely ridiculous and archaic. We need to start from the foundation up and make something that works for everyone instead of harming so many in our societies. Fix what is so obviously broken.
Anyways, I tend to get some stuff from people, some slurs but not as often as I worried about, mostly because I'm a masculine presenting person yet have long hair but beyond that I normally go into men's specific rooms anyways without too many odd looks and I'm good, the hair still seems to confuse people but it's a cultural thing for me so I refuse to get it cut short again.
That's just my guess as to why it seems like there're more MTFs than FTMs, it's more noticeable for a trans woman to want to wear a dress and makeup or express their femininity in anyway while for trans men, it's not, unless he expresses his identity to be a little too feminine sometimes like potentially still wearing makeup, dresses, what have you.
Also, keep in mind that trans people are still people, I think some of us can be very kind yet some of us can be exceptionally grumpy, we're just like any other group of people. We're not all perfect little angels. But please understand that depending on where people are on their transitioning path, some things WILL trigger some sort of anxiety in themselves and they will feel the need to defend themselves. I still get triggered when I have to use my birth name and be referred to as "she" by people, do you honestly think I should just deal with it and let them continue making that mistake? I mean, people are STILL being murdered for being trans in the world, keep that in mind. We simply wish to live our lives the way we want to, isn't that what anyone else wants? Each fellow trans person I've met has gone through their transition differently, there really isn't one right way to go about it. Everyone'll react differently to hormones, at differing times in their lives and some trans people don't even want to take hormones, which is perfectly valid. Just please be patient with people and act with understanding and compassion. Also respect pronouns!!! If someone's appearance confuses you, don't assume he/she pronouns for their sake, assume They/Them pronouns until you can learn what their pronouns are. It ain't that hard to do once you practice it!
