Pics and Cis Privilege

Cis privilege is going out to a hockey game with your partner and having a fantastic time, and taking a picture of the two you, and deciding to post the picture on the forums of the guild you’re both in, and posting it without incident.  Cis privilege is *NOT* spending an hour discussing whether or not the picture will cause even more people to misgender you because you don’t gender present the way you gender identify and people already have a hard enough time using your preferred gender pronouns.

(Note: this also intersects with other privileges, such as thin privilege, white privilege, able-bodied privilege, and male privilege, since fat people, people of color, people with disabilities, and female-identified people often get all kinds of shit for doing something as simple as posting a picture of themselves in a guild forum’s picture thread.)
