Cisgenderism is a prejudice similar to racism and sexism. It denies, ignores, denigrates, or stigmatizes non-cisgender forms of expression, sexual activity, behavior, relationship, or community. Cisgenderism exists in everyone — transgender individuals as well as cisgender individuals alike — because almost everyone is brought up in a predominately cisgender society that has little or no positive recognition of non-cisgender behavior, identity and/or experience.
The boss was accused of cisgenderism when he fired a transgender employee because he felt the transgender worker would be a distraction to other employees.

Get the Cisgenderism mug.
TERFs and herernormative pushing people often express Cisgenderism. Basically cisgender people who are discriminating or mislabeling or deadnaming or just misgendering Transgender people's expressed/true gender.
It is Cisgenderism to refer to someone past tense even as a child and retroactively misgendering them.
