an adjective for someone whose gender corresponds to their assigned sex
I am perfectly comfortable identifying as the gender my parents put on my birth certificate. I am cisgender.

A derogatory term used by members of the trans community to refer to all the disgusting people in this world who don't hate their genitalia.
Yeah, what did you expect from hetero cisgender shit like that?

1. Actual gender.

2. The rejection of the belief that your gender can change by merely *thinking* that you're a different gender.

Not transgender, that is, having a gender identity or gender role that society considers appropriate for the sex one was assigned at birth. The prefix cis- is pronounced like "sis".
John is cisgendered, he just holds to his role as a stereotypical male.

Cisgender (often abbreviated to simply cis) is a term for people whose experiences of their own gender agree with the sex they were assigned at birth. Cisgender may also be defined as those who have "a gender identity or perform a gender role society considers appropriate for one's sex."
Many also noticed a shift in their friendships after they transitioned, with some struggling to make friends with cisgender men, unsure of the social cues of male friendship.

Not a derogatory term at all as many transgender people use it to describe people they know and sometimes love.
Cisgender is a term for someone who has a gender identity that aligns with what they were assigned at birth. The term was created for referring to "non-transgender" people without alienating transgender people. Basically if you were born a woman and do womanly things and like to be referred to as a woman, then you are a cisgender. Not a bad thing.
I don’t feel my gender in my bones the way some people do—the way my wife, who’s a cisgender lesbian, describes feeling about her femaleness.

People who identify as the gender they were born with. The opposite of transgender. There are idiots in the world who believe cis is a made up because they clearly don't know the small technology device they use to spread their ignorance, can actually used to used to gain simple knowledge....

The terms “cis” and “trans” are from Latin, in which cis means "on this side"2 and trans means "on the other side" or "across". The term "geometric isomerism" is considered an obsolete synonym of "cis/trans isomerism"
I was born with a vagina and identify as a lesbian (I.e A homosexual WOMAN) so I'm cisgendered and so is my sister, also born with a vagina and identities as a woman, who is married to cisgendered Bob(who was born with a penis, and feels like a man) who has 2 brothers, a very feminine homosexual cisgender(born with a penis, wears heels sometimes but feels like a better man because of it) brother, Joe, the other brother Jack is homosexual transgender (born with a vagina, feels like a man (possibly do gender reassignment) and dates both cis- and trans-gender men). I have no idea why people think cisgendered is a hate word or made by unicorns but it's just an better term to use when talking to people who are trying understand when describing a difference between the two.
