Cisgender may also be defined as those who have “a gender identity or perform a gender role society considers appropriate for one’s sex”. Related terms include cissexism and cisnormativity. Cisgender has its origin in the Latin-derived prefix cis-, meaning “on this side of”, which means the opposite of trans-, meaning “across from” or “on the other side of”. Sociologists Kristen Schilt and Laurel Westbrook define cisgender as a label for “individuals who have a match between the gender they were assigned at birth, their bodies, and their personal identity”. The terms cisgender and cissexual were used in a 2006 article in the Journal of Lesbian Studies and Serano’s 2007 book Whipping Girl, after which the term gained some popularity among English-speaking activists and scholars. Serano also uses the related term cissexism, “which is the belief that transsexuals’ identified genders are inferior to, or less authentic than, those of cissexuals”.
In February 2014, Facebook began offering “custom” gender options, allowing users to identify with one or more gender-related terms from a selected list, including cis, cisgender, and others. She holds this view because she believes the term “non-trans” is clearer to average people and will help normalize transgender individuals. Glosswitch wrote in the British magazine the New Statesman that if an essential gender binary does not exist, then the idea that one’s identity matches their gender is maintaining a stereotype. Intersex people are born with atypical physical sex characteristics that can complicate initial sex assignment and lead to involuntary or coerced medical treatment.
