According to articles the University of Oregon suggests students should read, clothes that fit are an example of "cis privilege" and, to "dismantle" whiteness and "cis privilege," capitalism should be "disrupted."
The University of Oregon has a separate site for their libraries. Included in this separate site are "research guides" to help students understand topics that the university has deemed important. One such research guide is "Transgender Studies & Cisgender Privilege."
The research guide then direct students to read a checklist of "cisgender privileges," saying, "The following web resources offer primers on what cisgender privilege means, and how to recognize & evaluate your own privileges."
Included on the list are: "6. Clothing works for me, more or less. I am a size and shape for which clothes I feel comfortable wearing are commonly made" and "23. My potential lovers expect my genitals to look roughly similar to the way they do, and have accepted that before coming to bed with me."
list that outlines "cisprivilege [sic]" claims that people use trans-gendered people as "a scapegoat for their own unresolved gender issues."
Other resources that the University of Oregon provides for their students is an article from "Feminist Campus" that outlines "7 Ways You Can Use Your Cisgender Privilege for Good."
Feminist Campus declares that people can "start dismantling oppressive systems," like "cis privilege" and "whiteness."
The article claims that "living in a society that is steeped in capitalism is hard." One of the best ways to help transgendered people, it says, is to "Disrupt capitalism and share what you may have to help your kindred!"
