Kid, you don't know what a slur is if you think "well I'm taking it as a slur" makes it one. By that metric everything is a slur, even something as mundane as Koala. For something to be a slur it needs to be commonly understood to convey hatred/contempt and have a neutral counterpart that means the same thing without conveying hatred/contempt - e.g. **** vs Pakistani, or for the one you've used (and why I reported you given you've whinged about that - it wasn't a non-offence at all), ****** vs trans person. Cis does not qualify (does not have a neutral counterpart, nor is it commonly used to signify contempt), TERF does not qualify (it's an abbreviation of a political position - Trans-exclusionary radical feminist - and does not have a neutral counterpart, contempt is slightly trickier in that generally it's used while criticising those people for their actions and the views they hold), nor does transphobe (same situation as TERF).
Did you just call me 'kid'?
Well i guess we can see how well your argument is going if you have to resort to a pathetic wee ad hom such as that
The OED would beg to differ with you there.
Mmm person getting her knickers in a twist about a non-insult [face facts it was not an insult
] accuses me of "whining" yeah makes total sense, darling.
No, cis does not qualify in your opinion. Seriously what about this is so hard that its failing to get through your skull? Let me put it in caps to see if that makes a difference to you YOUR OPINION IS NOT A FACT stop trying to present your perverse views as such when they manifestly are not.
This is getting quite cute now that you feel the need to expand a simple acronym for some bizare reason - we are all perfectly aware of what it stands for and what they are. Indeed, you insufferably trying to appear clever, much to your detriment, seems to be harming your 'cause' as opposed to scoring you any petty little points. However your whining about them being big old meanies is rather amusing - you lot really need to get thicker skins if such non-insults and perfectly legitimate views upset you so much.
