    The only time I've had my cisgendered status used against me was when oh wait never.

    Privilege FTW

    "cisgendered" is a neologism I like

    There's a word for "not of color", there's a word for "not female", there's a word for "not gay", but there wasn't a word for "not transgendered". And now there is. There was a gap and now there isn't.

    Tangential curiosity from the previous issue:

    I had never heard this "cis" term before. I've seen the acronym, but applied to a wide variety of things, none of them gender.

    I have two questions about it now. First, how the hell am I supposed to pronounce it? Kiss? Siss? C.I.S.? K-eye-ss? S-eye-ss? None of them sound like real words, and it's throwing me. Second, where/when did this originate? I'd like to think I don't live in a dark cave, but this is bewilderingly new to me. Some folks are acting like this is a regular term, with common use. I don't think it is, and I'm intensely curious about it's origins.
    cis is pronounced siss
    it is latin for same
    trans is latin for opposite

    cis and trans isomers are stereoisomers in chemistry

    Cisgendered is a clinical term
    Really?

    I had a look at it earlier, and it looks more like is was coined by a transsexual academic?

    Also I bought some kind of device I'm supposed to use while sleepy to help get rid of my bunion. I have doubts as to its efficacy.

    Pronounced siss

    I don't know when it originated in this context, but it's just a Lating root, the acronym for trans. You might've heard the word Cisalpine, before (as opposed to Transalpine)? The prefix is also used in chemistry.

    Ah, never really pursued chemistry past the basics needed for a degree. So that would explain why I've never heard it (although Cisalpine, when pronounced "siss" is a word I've heard).

    Personally I think it's very strange. If you wanna be called a woman, I'll call you a woman, if you wanna be called a man, I'll call you a man. If you wanna tell me your transgendered, I'll nod and smile. I don't particularly care what kind of junk you have in your naughty place, and I don't think anyone else should care either. Gender is so intensely personal, making a big to-do about other's gender just seems like such a silly battle.

    But that's just me.

    Gabe is just an example of many of the kinds of people that are still in need of being informed of evolving mores and such.

    it is pretty sad to see him saying stuff that would get him infracted on his own forum if he were anyone else

    im not going to say anything as hysterical as calling him transphobic but he's certainly straddling the borders of goosyness there

    He's not posting it on the forums so how does it matter?

    I've always pronounced it "sis." I am pretty sure it 's correct.

    Someone here had posted the story of how the term drifted into gender use, I want to say from chemistry? Hmm.

    How common the term is just depends on social circles, I think. For a lot of people it is probably not a commonly-used term but I think that awareness is generally rising over time for trans and general gender issues and it's a useful term to have.

    A montage:
    Cass grits her teeth in determination.
    The laptop slams shut.
    Lacing black boots.
    A grappling hook sails through the cold night.
    Sasha and Neville: mrrow?
    Back at the apartment, the cat carrier opens.
    Scritchy scratch
    Purr
    Cass's pupils dilate

    I've read okcupid profiles that said not to bother messaging them if you were a cisgendered male. This is the closest I've ever come to having being cisgendered used against me.

    This basically seems like they're stating their orientation in a strange way

    Would it matter? If Gabe were 100% super transphobic, homophobic, racist, sexist king of the bigots, would you stop posting here even though he never does?

    no, probably not because i like the people here

    but this site is a pretty nice corner of the internet in that the mod staff and the users both try to make this place open to everyone, it would be a shame to put a dent in that rep

    Texting with Leigh about the Leverage game I'm running her through this week. She's very excited about this. And that little voice is in my head saying "You should run another game." And I'm telling it no. And it keeps saying I should run another game. And I keep telling it no. And then it says I should run a game of Shadowrun....and I say no.

    As cis scum, I thought that was pretty much NBD on the side of the creators.

    There were lots of obnoxious people defending them though.
