DNC not too interested employment discrimination, What does cisgender mean?

Good morning, Gramps here,

I want to start off this notebook entry by saying, with all the craziness going on in the world, I never seem to not broaden my vocabulary and constantly find nuggets of blatant hypocrisy on a nearly daily basis.

Take the latest on the Democratic National Committee (DNC). It’s been reported over the past several days that DNC Data Services Manager, Madeleine Leader, wrote the following in an email concerning a number of positions available in the DNC’s technology department:

“I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, since they’re already in the majority.”

First, I had to find what “cisgender” meant. I’m an educated man and been around the block a few times but that was a first. According to Wikipedia, it’s a term for people whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned at birth, as opposed to transgender.

I wondered to myself if I was an anomaly or do most people not know that word? Good grief!

Second, I’m not certain if the DNC itself signed off on something like this; however, one has to wonder how many are being discriminated in this one statement-cisgender straight white males? I bet quite a few.

I guess employment discrimination is not a factor if you’re “cisgender”. I wonder if the CNN or MSNBC are going to take this to the air 24/7 for a few days like they do for so many topics?
