Dear Cis People:
I’m sorry that you’re apparently so goddamn pampered as to have never experienced ACTUAL slurs and insults that you think “cis” is one just because it doesn’t neatly establish your identity while implicitly turning mine into a child playing make-believe, the way “normal” and “real” did. Seriously, I am SO sorry, I can’t possibly imagine the pain of someone making up a word to describe you; I mean, it’s not like you people have invented thousands for me.
