QuotesAdd a Quote
"... When it comes to gender, "natural" is the ultimate trump card because it takes the relevant issues - privilege and prejudice - off the table and frames the very real and legitimate perspectives of sexual minorities as "unnatural" or "artificial", and therefore unworthy of any serious consideration. This is why [the author] prefers the term "cissexual". It denotes the only relevant difference between that [natural] population and those of us who are transsexual: Cissexuals have only ever experienced their subconscious and physical sexes as being aligned." (p. 174)
