65. Generally things like woman-born or female identified have been used against transwomen

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]They give the impression that transwomen are not "real women" and your xx chromosome women might have come off that way as well.

Further, there is an intersex condition where a person is born and raised female, but have an XY chromosome called Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome.

Cis is preferred because it breaks the idea that cisgender individuals are the "normal" and trans are in someway "abnormal."[/font]
