Cissexism

Also known as cisnormativity, this refers to the social presumption of being cisgender, the view that we all are and should be cisgender, and the belief that to be cisgender is the normal, natural, and inherently superior gender identity. The dominance of being cisgender is reinforced by cissexist structures and social norms such as legal documents and intake forms that only provide Female and Male options, washrooms that are divided into Women and Men only, and referring to clothing, personal hygiene products, or body parts/functions as ‘women’s’ or ‘men’s.’
