Why are you taking this article so personally? I never said that cisgender was *your* gender paradigm. I’m not forcing anyone to identify as cisgender. I was speaking in generalizations and as I have stated, I wouldn’t force a specific identity on anyone. I respect how people identify themselves. If you tell me you’re not cisgender, then I will and do respect that.

This article isn’t an attack against you, so please stop taking it that way.
