By the way, cissexism is not confined to trans people.
If you’re a gay man and in a horrible freak accident of some kind your boyfriend’s dick gets chopped off and you leave him because you want a man with a dick? Guess what? That’s cissexist too. So is making fun of him, emasculating him, and calling him a girl or acting like he’s less of a man for it.
If a girl just naturally has significant amounts of testosterone and grows a lot of thick body hair or has a deep voice and you think she’s “mannish” or “manly” that’s cissexist too.
Every time a woman who can’t conceive is treated like a failure or less of a woman. CISSEXISM.
When women with cancer get double mastectomies and people pity them for it? CISSEXISM.
When tall women are mocked for their height. When broad shouldered women are made fun of. When short men are mocked. When men with high voices are called “girly”.
CISSEXISM. CISSEXISM. CISSEXISM.
If someone’s physical appearance or body in ANY WAY shapes your idea of their gender then you are being cissexist.
We barely ever talk about this. It used to be covered (sort of) under some areas of feminism (though never actually CALLED cissexism) but that seems to be less and less true.
I’m calling it: 2017 is the year I start talking all the time about the cissexism you’ve probably never even noticed.
