Cis quotes by Marcel H. Van Herpen
#1. On August 7, 2013, on the evening of the fifth anniversary of the war, Georgian President Mikheil Saakasvili, in a prerecorded interview on Georgia's Rustavi-2 TV, told that he had met Putin in Moscow in February 2008 at an informal summit of the CIS. During the summit he told Putin that he was ready to say no to NATO in exchange for Russian help with the reintegration of the two breakaway territories. Saakashvili claimed "that 'Putin did not even think for a minute" about his proposal. "[Putin] smiled and said, 'We do not exchange your territories for your geopolitical orientation... And it meant 'we will chop off your territories anyway.'"

Saakashvili asked him to talk about the growing tensions along the borders with South Ossetia, saying, "It could not be worse than now." "That's when he [Putin] looked at me and said: 'And here you are very wrong. You will see that very soon it will be much, much, much worse.'" [234] #Quote by Marcel H. Van Herpen
Cis quotes by Tim Cannon
#2. Ask anyone who's transgender. They'll tell you they're trapped in the wrong body. But me, I'm trapped in the wrong body because I'm trapped in a body. All bodies are the wrong body. #Quote by Tim Cannon
Cis quotes by Julia Serano
#3. They [heterosexual cis women] are accepted in the straight mainstream way more readily than I [trans woman] will ever be. But they are marginalized in their day-to-day lives because they are feminine. To argue that they are reinforcing the binary, or the patriarchy or the hegemonic gender system, because they are conventional feminine (as opposed to subversively feminine) essentially implies that they are enabling their own oppression. This is just another variation of the claim that rapists make when they insinuate that the woman in question was 'asking for it' because of what she was wearing or how she behaved. #Quote by Julia Serano
Cis quotes by Ralph W. Moss
#4. A study was done which shows the majority of oncologists who refer patients for chemotherapy for lung cancer would not themselves take chemotherapy for lung cancer. And in fact if the chemotherapy involved cis-platen, something like 75% of them said they wouldn't take it. But what do these people do all day long? They're sending people for cis-platen. #Quote by Ralph W. Moss
Cis quotes by Ann Leckie
#5. I love analogies! Let's have one.

Imagine that you dearly love, absolutely crave, a particular kind of food. There are some places in town that do this particular cuisine just amazingly. Lots of people who are into this kind of food hold these restaurants in high regard. But let's say, at every single one of these places, every now and then throughout the meal, at random moments, the waiter comes over and punches any women at the table right in the face. And people of color and/or LGBT folks as well! Now, most of the white straight cis guys who eat there, they have no problem–after all, the waiter isn't punching them in the face, and the non-white, non-cis, non-straight, non-guys who love this cuisine keep coming back so it can't be that bad, can it? Hell, half the time the white straight cis guys don't even see it, because it's always been like that and it just seems like part of the dining experience. Granted, some white straight cis guys have noticed and will talk about how they don't like it and they wish it would stop.

Every now and then, you go through a meal without the waiter punching you in the face–they just give you a small slap, or come over and sort of make a feint and then tell you they could have messed you up bad. Which, you know, that's better, right? Kind of?

Now. Somebody gets the idea to open a restaurant where everything is exactly as delicious as the other places–but the waiters won't punch you in the face. Not even once, #Quote by Ann Leckie
Cis quotes by Janet Mock
#6. The work begins by each of us recognizing that cis people are not more valuable or legitimate and that trans people who blend as cis are not more valuable or legitimate. We must recognize, discuss, and dismantle this hierarchy that polices bodies and values certain ones over others. #Quote by Janet Mock
Cis quotes by Janet Mock
#7. When disclosure occurs for a trans woman, whether by choice or by another person, she is often accused of deception because, as the widely accepted misconception goes, trans women are not 'real' women (meaning cis women); therefore, the behavior (whether rejection, verbal abuse, or sever violence) is warranted. The violence that trans women face at the hands of heterosexual cis men can go unchecked and uncharted because society blames trans women for the brutality they face. Similar to arguments around rape, the argument goes that 'she brought it upon herself. #Quote by Janet Mock
Cis quotes by Anne T. Donahue
#8. But I haven't forgotten my misplaced anger either, so I also have to remember to shut the fuck up and listen sometimes. Because if I'm this angry as a white, hetero, cis, thin, able-bodied woman (Polly Pocket: Privilege), I can only imagine how angry women at the intersections of other forms of oppression are. Which means I need to connect to a larger community and movement, to let my voice be one of many, to be a voice that sometimes just amplifies other people's. Turns out this is great, though – because the only thing better than one angry woman is an army of them. #Quote by Anne T. Donahue
Cis quotes by Christopher Soto
#9. I WONDER IT HEAVEN GOT A GAY GHETTO

Lorde know(s) cis-hets don`t like me
Baldwin know(s) how white homos exoticize me
I hope heaven got a gay ghetto
Where my QPOC family don`t feel shame
Don`t feel too brown or black
Or femme or phat
Don`t get shame for being free
Don`t get lonely, don`t get sa(i)d
You know, he`s gunna meet white jesus
Shiet, he probably already got a picure
with white jesus
signed and framed on his wall

Mother Mary // Virgin Mother // fucker #Quote by Christopher Soto
Cis quotes by Janet Mock
#10. These glaring disparities, about how those with the most access within the movement set the agenda, contribute to the skewed media portrait, and overwhelmingly fail at funneling resources to those most marginalized. My awakening pushed me to be more vocal about these issues, prompting uncomfortable but necessary conversations about the movement privileging middle- and upper-class cis gay and lesbian rights over the daily access issues plaguing low-income queer and trans youth and LGBT people of color, communities that carry interlocking identities that are not mutually exclusive, that make them all the more vulnerable to poverty, homelessness, unemployment, HIV/AIDs, hyper-criminalization, violence, and so much more. #Quote by Janet Mock
Cis quotes by Brittney Cooper
#11. And while it is okay to acknowledge that all kinds of women, whether white, Black, Indigenous, Latina, Asian, cis, gender nonconforming, trans, queer, bi, or straight might have different experiences, it's not cool to act as though transwomen are in some entirely separate category from the more general category of woman. That is something that feminism needs to be clear on - that it isn't feminism if all women's concerns, particularly the most marginalized women's concerns, aren't taken seriously. #Quote by Brittney Cooper
Cis quotes by Ava Crawford, Without A Thought
#12. I'm doing this because society wants sex to be straight, cis-gendered, married, monogamous, private, not-for-hire, completely vanilla and all about making babies. And I think that's bullshit. #Quote by Ava Crawford, Without A Thought
Cis quotes by Casey Plett
#13. Wendy knew how to deal with looking cis and she knew how to deal with looking trans, but she would never, ever figure out how to be both. How the world could treat her so differently - within days or hours. #Quote by Casey Plett
