Cis and Trans

Rupert Read has been criticised for being offensive to transgender people. I think he was saying that trans women, ie men who identify as women, shouldn't dictate to cis women, ie women who are born as women, who is or isn't allowed to be identified as a woman.

Here’s the article that got him into trouble: Don’t throw out the Feministbaby with the Burchill bathwater

Here is a top google hit about Cis: WhatDoes Being “Cis” Mean For A Woman? on the weekwoman blog.
