You are cis, as opposed to trans. It’s descriptive, not pejorative. Cis and trans are latin prefixes used to distinguish all sorts of things.

Do you take similar offense at people talking about cisalpine Italy?

And are you threatening me? You know that would be a violation of Medium’s terms of service, right? It would also be not very nice.

And hardly mature.
