CRY MOAR RADFEMS

WE NEEEEEEEED YOUR TEARS FOR OUR MARTINIS

Excuse me, I have to go cis me some cissies.

WOW I CAN’T

“woman hating religion”. WUT?

I’m stuck between surprise (i mean, I’m used to radiscum but this is special even for them), anger and dying of laughter.

So we’re clear a google search for “cis prefix” doesn’t turn up anything about cutting or killing or anything. Because, when used as a prefix, cis does NOT mean to cut or kill. ever. As a suffix and variant of ‘cise’ it can have that meaning, but cisgender/cissexual/cissexist don’t use it as a suffix. This isn’t open to interpretation and is not debatable. It just is. Like, it’s the only definition in the dictionary. Which dictionary? Any of the ones that have an entry for it.

 ”words don’t just mean what [one] wants them to.” Neither do parts of words.

BONUS logic trolling: If trans means to ‘cross over’ and, in the context of ‘trans women’ means ‘women who cross over’ and ‘cis’ means ‘cut’ or ‘kill’ (it doesn’t, by the way,) then, by your logic aren’t ‘cis women’ ‘women who cut or kill?’ N/M I don’t care what you think because you suck at thinking.
