Linear Gender

Linear gender refers to the view that a person’s body, personal identity number, gender identity, pronoun, name, gender expression, and reproductive organs are masculine or feminine and remain consistent throughout life. Those who comply to the notion of linear gender could also be called a cis person. A cis person enjoys a wide range of privileges, such as not having to deal with questions about their genitals, the peace of using public toilets and swimming pools without worrying about derogatory remarks and violence, and the ability to pick up something from the mail office or the chemist without their gender identity being questioned. Linear gender implies that those who do not conform to the norm are problematic.
