i thought cis meant "doesnt experience dysphoria"
There are a lot of people who say they are trans and don’t experience dysphoria. Also, I am going by the definition of “cis” given by Janet Mock, one of the most prominent trans activists. She says, and I quote:
Children who behave in line with their prescribed gender roles are cisgender or cissexual (throughout, I will use the prefix cis, which means “on the same side of” while trans means “across” or “on the opposite side of”), a term used for people who are not trans and more likely to identify the gender that correlates with the sex they were assigned at birth. Most cis people rarely question their gender identity because the gender binary system validates them, enabling them to operate without conflict or correction.
If you want to read more about what trans activists really believe in their own fucking words, here’s a book review of Redefining Realness that quotes Janet Mock’s own misogynistic words.
Another thing Janet Mock wrote about womanhood:
“I hate walking to work in heels, but I have to have a complete outfit with the right proportions so I tend to walk to work in heels. I hate tweezing my eyebrows, but I have to in order to achieve my most enhancing arch so I pluck my brows. I hate using eye makeup remover (Kiehls supremely gentle) but I do so at the end of a workday because I want to be free to rub up against my boyfriend at home while watching Netflix. These are the beautiful inconveniences that help make up the sum of my womanhood.“
Basically she thinks womanhood is about conforming to the patriarchal concept of femininity. That’s what makes her a misogynist: she thinks womanhood is nothing but make up and dresses and looking pretty, when those things are forced on us against our will.
This is trans activism: defining womanhood by what the patriarchy says it is.
