Greetings! You recently posted about the word “cisgender” and specified it “means that that person was born with the body that they identify with”. I don’t think this particular definition is especially inclusive, because there are lots of trans* people who DO identify with their bodies but they DON’T identify with the social norms associated with them.
As a cisgender person, I usually say something like, “Cisgender means that the sex you are assigned at birth is congruent with how you identify.”
And then use myself as an example, “I was assigned female at birth and now that I’m older, I still identify as female and am comfortable with being perceived as female.”
Thanks so much beautifulqueer for making the term even more inclusive. Ultimately, this is a goal for Project Queer - to be inclusive to ALL. Thanks again for pointing that out and assisting us with the term ‘cisgender’.
