Realk Talk: When cisgender people get upset about being called cisgender, they're really upset because having to be called SOMETHING implies they are no longer the "normal" or the "default"- something they thought they were immune from.
Cause, like, cisgender is not a bad word. Yet some cis people get upset when called cis because they are no longer just “people”. It puts them on the same level as gay people, bi people, trans people… people that have never gotten to just be “people”. Calling cis people cisgender is forcing them to think about their identity and acknowledging it’s not the only or the best or the default.
