Two identities are not found here: heterosexual and cisgender. Why? Because we all are trained to understand them as normal. Heterosexuality is privileged as normal, receiving societal support in myriad ways, from marriage to proms to greeting cards. In short, it is invisible unless ou are not a person who identifies as a heterosexual or straight person. Likewise, cisgender people are those for whom the sex assigned at birth fits well with their gender identity. being cisgender means being represented in every area of a society that mirrors your gender identity in cultural representation, rituals, rites of passage, laws, etc.
