I get what this person is trying to say. I think labeling yourself as "trans" is a trauma response to the harshness and rigidity of gender roles. Gendered socialization is harmful and traumatic to many people, especially children who do not fit into rigid boxes. But no one is "cis." There are people who recognize that gender is bullshit, and people who think that gendered socialization means that non-trans people agree or feel affinity with their natal sex stereotypes.
