May I ask what your objection to the term cis/cisgender is?

The ‘cis-’ prefix is literally just the opposite of the prefix ‘trans-.’ When a person is referred to as cisgender, it just means their gender and biological sex align, and it’s an easy way to differentiate from transgender or non-binary people (rather than constantly saying ‘non-transgender people.’)

Why is that so offensive?
