Depends how you define the mainstream media. Of course, there's the dinosaur media of big TV outlets... But what these internet outlets above have become totally is "mainstream media", in how these are the tech mediations being used massively. These are big businesses doing a lot more money these days than outlets like NYT or Faux News.

Wtf are u on about. I said I got the idea that cis just means not trans from talking to queer teenagers. And then u critique me by saying I just get it from the mainstream media. Like wtf reality are u in? I don't know how new York Times or fox news is relevant.

I'll post this too because heaven forbid you need all the help you can get:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisgender

German sexologist Volkmar Sigusch used the neologism cissexual (zissexuell in German) in a peer-reviewed publication. In his 1998 essay "The Neosexual Revolution", he cites his two-part 1991 article "Die Transsexuellen und unser nosomorpher Blick" ("Transsexuals and our nosomorphic view") as the origin of the term.[4]

Cisgender has its origin in the Latin-derived prefix cis-, meaning 'on this side of', which is the opposite of trans-, meaning 'across from' or 'on the other side of'. This usage can be seen in the cis–trans distinction in chemistry, the cis and trans sides of the Golgi apparatus in cellular biology, the cis–trans or complementation test in genetics, in Ciscaucasia (from the Russian perspective), in the ancient Roman term Cisalpine Gaul (i.e., 'Gaul on this side of the Alps'), Ciskei and Transkei (separated by the Kei River), and more recently, Cisjordan, as distinguished from Transjordan. In the case of gender, cis- describes the alignment of gender identity with assigned sex.[5]

Sociologists Kristen Schilt and Laurel Westbrook define cisgender as a label for "individuals who have a match between the gender they were assigned at birth, their bodies, and their personal identity".[2] A number of derivatives of the terms cisgender and cissexual include cis male for "male assigned male at birth", cis female for "female assigned female at birth", analogously cis man and cis woman,[6] and cissexism and cissexual assumption.[7] In addition, one study published in the Journal of the International AIDS Society used the term cisnormativity, akin to sexual diversity studies' heteronormativity.[8][9] A related adjective is gender-normative because, as Eli R. Green writes, "'cisgendered' is used [instead of the more popular 'gender normative'] to refer to people who do not identify with a gender diverse experience, without enforcing existence of a normative gender expression".[10] In this way, cisgender is preferable because, unlike the term gender-normative, it does not imply that transgender identities are abnormal.

...

While some believe that the term cisgender is merely politically correct,[20][21][22][23][24] medical academics use the term and have recognized its importance in transgender studies since the 1990s.[25][26][27]

Can't be queer and transphobic. Nice try, boomer.

I totally forgot that Zoomers were posting on tech platforms in 1914 through the 90's wow how silly of me. 😏

Like imagine repeating transphobic rhetoric and then asking not to have your "queerness" negated lol.
