I did spend some time looking through this stuff after I made my original comment that was the first time I hit these terms. My bewilderment was of course treated as some kind of calculated insult rather than understood by the people who directly responded to me.

I learnt a few things, along those the primary understanding that there is nothing I could possibly say that would not be attacked on this topic, because I fundamentally do not use language the same way that people do who care about this topic. It's easier just to let it slide.

So, you've been busy using the phrases you pointed out "cis-privilege" and "transphobia" for a while and hear them used in other contexts commonly and thus came away bewildered? Poor thing. Someone is obviously trying to make your head spin.
