As a Cis-Gendered woman I hate that the word Cis is used as an insult.
S Debra Evans

Angela did not use “cis” as an insult anywhere in this post. If you’d really like to learn more, I’d be happy to talk to you from one cis woman to another. It’s not ok for you to blame someone for “your mind shutting down,” i.e. you not wanting to support them as an ally, based on something they didn’t even do. And if you just came here to mention that you feel this way about cis “being used as an insult,” please google derailing.
