Cisgender just means that your gender matches your sex. It is the opposite of transgender, which means that your sex and gender are not the same. Cis was never meant to be a dirty word, but some people on Tumblr use it as though it were.
doesnt stop me from taking it as a slur and wanting to slap the taste out of someones mouth for using it.
Well, you’re entitled to be an idiot if you so desire. But actually comprehending things and responding intelligently is a fun alternative that you may wish to try in the future.
wanting to do it and actually doing it are two different things. or did you not know that? i’m offended by the term and no amount of education will change the fact that i am offended by a shorthand term for my sexual orientation.
It literally has nothing to do with sexual orientation. It has to do with gender identification.
And no one—I repeat: NO ONE—gives even one tenth of a fuck what words you arbitrarily choose to be offended by. I could say I’m offended by the word “Taco” and protest is usage and picket Taco Bell. It would do nothing but make me look like an idiot. And guess what? That’s exactly what you look like right now.
I am cis. Nothing about the term cis harms me or degrades me in any way. It’s simply a classification, no more offensive than any other accurate description. I am many things: white, tall, overweight, atheist, male, etc. Being offended by simple descriptive labels like these is equal parts insanity and inanity.
didn’t know we even had a term for normal people
Go fuck yourself.
did I tell you about this teacher I had..
she taught history of animation
she hated Miyazaki because of how the lips didn’t match what the characters were saying and went on and on and on about how Disney recycled their animation in a lot of early movies and how she thought that was just cheap and disgraceful and lazy
her favorite cartoon
was Family Guy
OW THAT PHYSICALLY HURT ME TO READ
