can the Sciencsyy side of tumblor.com explain??, a nyone ? what’s a ~cis~??!
Well i am probably the farthest thingy from the sciencsyy side of tumblr, but…
~Cis~ is Short for “cisgender” (opposite of “transgender”), used to describe someone whose gender identity matches their anatomical gender at birth.
For some reason on tumblr this also translates into someone who does not understand or respect those who are transgender and/or people who are transitioning but this is untrue. As someone who is very genderfluid, I can say that I have met more cisgender people who understand my gender identity better than a lot of people who identify as transgender.
Let me say this:
CIS IS NOT AN INSULT
BEING CIS DOES NOT MAKE YOU A BAD PERSON
NOT KNOWING ABOUT TRANSGENDERISM IS PERFECTLY OK
It isn’t just cisgender people who fuck it up for the trans* community. I see more people within their own community fucking it sideways with a list of ‘expectations’ that you must meet if you are ‘actually trans’ and most of these are set by people who see being transgender in one way and one way only when it is a very vast land of ins and outs and oddities and loopholes.
So yeah, once more, being cis is not bad. Being blatantly and blissfully ignorant is the real issue in the end.
is this a joke
