I get confused by a lot of the gender issues and the use of gender-specific pronouns. I think that soon it will be required to ask someone how they identify before we are allowed to speak to them. That way we will be sure to use the correct pronouns.
Evidently, in the current vernacular, I am “cis,” short for cisgender. I didn’t know that until today. It means “people who are cisgender remain on the same side of the gender they were initially identified as at birth.”
I’ve decided that I have some gender-specific adjectives that identify me. They are “old” and “handsome.” So, when speaking to me, it might be appropriate to refer to me as that handsome, old guy who writes silly articles. And, just to be clear, I like to keep things simple so I really only think there are 2 genders…M and F.
