Sir, do you know why we pulled you over?
the dude who kicked in the windshield, also backflipped off the hood of the car. you know he’s waited his entire career to bust out those moves.
I would like to enroll in whatever kickass class he had.
The pun-tential here is ridiculous
Hey Wario, why is there even a need for cisgender? Why can't people just be called... I dunno... people? Love your work. -JewWario
The need for the word cisgender is extremely important. Cisgender is complementary and opposite to transgender, and the alternative to not having the word cisgender would be saying “trans people and normal people” which is incredibly degrading. Cis is not a bad word, it does not mean anything negative, it merely means the gender you identify as and the gender you were designated at birth match. Much like “heterosexual” and “homosexual”, they are words to talk about a topic. Simply calling everyone “people” would be to ignore and erase the differences between us that make everyone unique, which is even more important because gender identity affects how people treat you, and trans people often face discrimination, harassment, and worst of all violence. Having words that don’t impart a value judgement to discuss these kinds of topics is crucial.
