Cis literally means to stay put, as opposed to trans, which means crossing.

I actually had no idea what this word meant until now. Just heard it thrown around in some circles occasionally. Now I am enlightened.

Well trans people are still trans before hormones and surgeries, and cis people (extremely rarely) transition either by mistake or for some weird psychological reason

Right. And there are trans people who chose not to change their bodies as well, confoundingly enough.

Transgender: the biological gender conflicts with one's perceived gender identity
Transsexual: the person has has altered his/her body to match a perceived gender
Cisgender: preconceived ideas of gender and biological sex match

Not sure if cissexual is a thing. I assume it would mean that one has not changed one's biological sex.

My question is, would transgender identity be an issue if men and women were not perceived as different based on their biological sexes, i.e. if gender equality existed and no sex was considered weaker, stronger, masculine, or feminine. If masculinity and femininity were not ingrained as concepts in our minds, would we have transgendered people, transsexuals?

Probably because most bisexuals have been forced to live straight lives throughout the centuries.

Maybe she is a little bit bi and is ashamed to admit it.

Your mother is wrong, and ignorant. The question is, are you bisexual or pansexual? Both of these definitely exist. Pansexual would mean that you could be attracted to transgender individuals, etc.

On another note, it infuriates me to no end when cisgender, straight individuals act like other gender or sexual identities don't exist, that you are "just confused", or it's "a stage". Sweeping a part of your identity under the rug like they want you to isn't healthy. I suppose I just feel like they push these lies on people to cover up how uncomfortable they are with what they don't understand.

I suppose those ignorant straight individuals assume that everyone is straight and that gays and lesbians are just perverts who would go against their natural attraction to the opposite sex for the same sex.

How is that even logical, though? Suppose it just goes to show how subjective reality really is.

I had a question in another topic, but I'll address it here

What is your experience out in public as a trans-woman? Just in general

I still tend to get misgendered often but my roommates usually correct most people. Otherwise I go about my day as a woman.

As do I, I feel as the younger generation grows up we will have more and more lgbt friendly areas because younger people are becoming more accepting of people as it is and that's the kind of society we need in the future; people who aren't attacking the lgbt while hiding behind false religious reasons.

In the parts where gay people are known as queers, it's definitely tough.

I've decided to move to nearby our city's LGBT enclave, Church and Wellesley, to share a room with a friend there. Quite far from my work but I feel safer down there. I'm going to take part in this year city's Pride Week. I missed out last year World Pride event.

Let's gather or host a meet up with local LGBT people and have a party. :)

I had similar situation during my time in the army. The top brass were not exactly open to LGBT people like our media used to talk about. So I kept my identity very secret, until the last year of my duty. A fellow officer (who's also gay) and I, hosted a secret meet up for LGBT servicemen at a restaurant. At least 2 dozens of people showed up, many of them weren't even in the military. We did this coincided with the Pride Parade's date in Toronto. It was amazing.

My girlfriend and I had to leave church on mother's day because instead of a mother's day sermon the speaker went into gay bashing. It was very upsetting and done in such a disgusting manner that I'm almost certain that ill be staying out of the church from now on.

I noticed the Catholics never talk about these in churches, except in the back. The Protestants and Mormons do these the most. And the Methodists don't give a fuck.

Didn't Pope Francis recently mention that gays are "important" or something?
