So...I'm sorry if this is offensive😤but...what does "CIS" mean🙏🙏🙏
definitely not offensive!!!
first off - it isn’t an acronym. it’s not “C.I.S”, it’s all lowercase, and spells a word “cis”. pronounced like the first half of the word “sister”
it’s short for “cisgender” which refers to somebody who identifies as the gender they were assigned at birth. so, if your birth certificate says “this lil potatoe’s a dude” and you, to this day, agree with that, and are like “yes. i am a guy. that is me.” then you’re cis!
its antonym is the word “trans” - short for “transgender” which means the opposite: somebody who does not identify as the gender they were assigned at birth. for example, when i was born, the doctor and my parents and stuff were like “aww look at this cute little boy” and years later i grew up and said “no actually, i am a Girl, but yes i agree i am very cute”
hope i helped
