Today I learned what “cis” means. I had never heard of that term before perusing this forum. I must admit that the makeup of this forum is quite different than I’m used to interacting with in day to day life. Therefore, my puny worldview is expanding ever so slightly, as evidenced by today’s new bit of knowledge.
