Maybe it’s worth pointing out that we still say “white” even though in much of the US white people are in a clear privileged majority. I dunno, I feel suss when people react emotionally against the word cis. It makes me think “the lady doth protest too much.” But obviously I can’t read minds, so I’ll leave it there.

Oh, and no need to feel flattered. I’m just a former reservist Jarhead turned active duty Flyboy, currently with FAR too much spare time on my hands. ;-)
