Cis people who think cis as a term is oppressive to them are so laughable like that’s like someone calling your arm an arm and you’re like “is this some tumblr social justice bullshit”
Well it is calling an arm an arm. I’m not saying…
that is not what cis people are. cis people are people who are assigned the gender at birth with which they identify. trans people are assigned a gender at birth with which they do not identify.
what I’m saying is that why do you have to call every single person that isn’t genderqueer/trans/ect cis? The label shouldn’t be over used like it is. I think that it only needs to be used when deemed appropriate because otherwise it is redundant and used improperly bc it doesn’t apply to the situation. Most people are comfortable with the gender that they’re born with, but if they’re not, they identify as not being so. Like I previously stated, it just feels extra to me. Like an add on. It shouldn’t be used as much as it is.
……because every single person that isn’t trans is cis? like what is so hard to understand about that? if you aren’t trans you are cis. if you aren’t cis you are trans. IT’S SO SIMPLE WHY ARE YOU OVERCOMPLICATING IT TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE A BAD THING. Being cis is fine! Being trans is fine! It’s not unnecessary. What other word is there for not being trans? Besides saying not trans every time? Oh wait, it’s cis. You use cis. fucking christ you people.
I never once claimed it was a bad thing. I’m trying to explain why I think it’s overused if the term is someone who is accepting of their gender. It is given that most people are comfortable with the body that they were born with. If they aren’t, they conform to the term that fits their preferred sexuality. What I’m trying to point out is that I feel like the term is overused in situations that it does not need to be used. I do not feel * this is my opinion, DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONALLY PLEASE *like we need to be labeling someone who isn’t asking to be. I see the term thrown very loosely around the internet as to specify that the specific person in that post is cis; but I don’t see the point. The example I’m thinking of would be a text post I saw that said something roughly along the lines of
"me: I’m going to fucking stab you. cis white boy: oh yeah? then what? ;)"
Why does the boy have to be identified as cis? It is a non-essential element in the post.
I am not saying it is a bad term.
I am not saying that it shouldn’t be used.
I am not trying to put down people that use the term.
What I am trying to convey is that from MY personal experience that it is used when it doesn’t need to be making it redundant. I don’t think that it needs to be used as much as it is. It is dulling down the effect of the word.
because cis people routinely destroy, murder, harass, harm, enact violence upon, silence, tone police, erase, etc, etc, efuckingtc. that’s why trans people specify cis people. because it’s not trans people killing trans people, it’s cis people. cis people have a history of being fucking awful that trans people just don’t have.
I’m done with this conversation. Continue to revel in your ignorance and privilege. I’m blocking you, I’d prefer you unfollow me as well.
I’m just saying, violent tendencies are congruent across every race, religion, sexuality, gender, and between the cis/trans identifier. When you say cis people ROUTINELY etc etc, it makes it sound as though this whole other group of people as a whole are hateful towards another group of people, when in reality this is absolutely not the case, seeing as many gays and lesbians fall under your definition of cis gendered. So basically this is a very broad generalization which isn’t necessarily true, and only further serves to promote an “us and them” mindset between people of either gender identifier.

YOU LEFT OUT THE MOTHERFUCKING CRYSTAL PYRAMIDS THEY FOUND ON THE FLOOR OF THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE
OLDER THAN THE AZTECS AND COMPLETELY SMOOTH AND 3 TIMES BIGGER THAN THE EGYPTIAN CHEOPS AND NO ONE KNOWS HOW IT GOT THERE.
IM SORRY BUT WHY IS THIS THE FIRST TIME IVE HEARD OF THE CRYSTAL PYRAMIDS WHAT IS THIS SHIT
OKAY HERE’S YOUR DEBRIEFING OF THE CRYSTAL PYRAMID BECAUSE THAT IS SOME CRAZY SHIT.
IN 2012 FRENCH AND AMERICAN SCIENTISTS STUDYING THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE STUMBLED UPON THIS HUGE TRANSLUCENT PYRAMID
THIS THING MEASURED 300 METERS WIDE AND 200 METERS TALL. THAT’S BIGGER THAN THE PYRAMIDS OF GIZA SO YOU COULD IMAGINE HOW CRAZY THIS WAS TO THE SCIENTISTS
NOW THIS IS ALL 2000 METERS UNDERWATER. THE SCIENTISTS THEN DISCOVERED TWO HOLES AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID THAT MOVE WATER THRU AT AN EXTREMELY FAST RATE. THIS CAUSES MASIVE SURGE WAVES AND MIST ON THE SURFACE. THAT MAY BE THE REASON FOR THE INCIDENTS WITH BOATS AND PLANES CRASHING THERE
THEY’RE SAYING THAT THIS PYRAMID COULD BE FROM THE TIME BEFORE THE BIBLE SAYS NOAH’S ARK HAPPENED
BUT WHATEVER IT IS THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE JUST GOT LIKE A BILLION TIMES CREEPIER
