People are way over thinking sexuality. You are confusing yourselves and others with the Ze and Zir thing. I still think it’s an affront to truly transgender persons.
That’s great that you are adding words to the dictionary. Who doesn’t love new definitions? For schizzle my nizzle.
However, I Wilfred, am here to help everyone get back to basics.
I will agree that the English language is limited and sexist. There is sir for men which means you don’t know if that guy is married or not, what parts he has, and who he wants to have sex with. Then there is miss, missus or Mrs., truly misogynistic as we know nothing of their parts or sexuality, except that these women are single or married. Even Ms. was revised but it backfired as people thought she was an unmarried female who didn’t want to be known as such.
The whole cis / trans thing has gotten way out of hand. This stems from chemistry where a molecule has the same components, but in a different arrangement, often making for different properties.
The same can be said of men and women: Different arrangements with different chemicals flowing through their bodies, and different roles which vary widely according to the culture they live in.
Yes, there are many different types of people and sexual persuasions. There are straight people, bisexuals, lesbians, gay men, transgender persons, and transsexual persons, including true hermaphrodites physically and genetically, and the list grows on. Nowadays you can select your life altering chemicals.
The Discovery series I Am Jazz about Jazz Jennings, who was born as a boy but identifies as a girl, is quite fascinating and very revealing to the point of having an explicit content disclaimer even though footage comes directly from the mouth of this teenaged transgender.
Imagine going through puberty, awkward as it is, and then having to deal with everyone constantly asking about your sexuality and genitals.
Jazz is trying to transition to being a full blown, sexually functional woman with parts to match.
I’m coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show
I’m coming out

Attention world, I am officially coming out. That’s right. I am a cisgender and I’m owning it, girl. It explains me to a T, or rather to a C.
In other words, I identify with the gender assigned to me at birth.
I first learned of the cis / trans situation when studying chemistry. Cis = same. Trans = opposite. How wonderful that this has translated to biology!
