Female to Male
Male to Female
adj form of cisgender
The opposite of transgendered, someone who is cisgendered has a gender identity that agrees with their societally recognized sex.
Many transgender people prefer "cisgender" to "biological", "genetic", or "real" male or female because of the implications of those words. Using the term "biological female" or "genetic female" to describe cisgendered individuals excludes transgendered men, who also fit that description. To call a cisgendered woman a "real woman" is exclusive of transwomen, who are considered within their communities to be "real" women, also.
Some of my friends are trans, but I'm cisgendered.

So, in other words, s/he was fluffy?
Here comes the confusion again....
This is a good way of introducing the false idea that "gender is a choice" (rather than a biological fact) onto Millions of people in one go. Nothing funny about it, its political-PC-propaganda.
Perhaps no-one will be satisfied until there is an individual gender identification for each individual.
