A person who is not transgender. In other words this is what about 99% of people are.

Short for "cisgender".

Unfortunately, "cis" is sometimes used as an insult by people who want to de-legitimize somebody else's opinion by attacking their identity. SJW's frequently resort to calling somebody a "privileged, white cis male" as a way of countering an argument (even though they are often just assuming the person in question is cis).

The phrase cis male can also be used in a totally neutral way without any judgement, depending on the context.
Neutral use: "Research has shown that around 99% of people are cis"

Derogatory use: "How dare you not agree with my feminist dissertation on the patriarchal themes of Tetris! You are just a cis white male!

Commonwealth of Independent States; putative successor to the USSR, except that the Baltic Republics of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania never joined. Contrary to another definition of CIS at the Urban Dictionary, the CIS does not stand for "Communist Independent States." Moreover, that definition has the CIS existing BEFORE 1991, and includes Kazakhstan as "not officially part of the Soviet Union." Kazakhstan was, in fact, one of the 15 republics of the USSR until 1991.

The CIS came into being December 1991. Mostly consists of regularly scheduled conferences of foreign ministers and defense ministers.

In 1995, members Belarus and Russia created the Commonwealth of Sovereign Republics (CSR).
The August 2008 war between Georgia and Russia was unique in being a direct war between CIS member states, although there have been others waged by proxy.
