This is just your aggressively friendly reminder that “cishet aces” and “cishet aros” don’t exist.

“Cishet” was a word coined by trans people meant to describe someone who has full, unconditional access to straight privilege - that is, someone who is 100% perisex, cisgender, heterosexual, and heteroromantic. 

If you use cishet to refer to a-specs, you are using it wrong.

If you’re cis and you’re using it, you are stealing our language on top of using it wrong.

The more I see cishet used on tumblr (I’m NOTtalking about how it was coined otiginally) the more similar it seems to the anti-black term oreo. It’s a way to shut up people you don’t want to listen to.
