Okay next time you ask yourself or someone, “Why do people have to label themselves, can’t we all just love whoever we love and like whoever we like and hold hands…” or “Why do we need to label ourselves if it doesn’t matter…”
Giving yourself an identity isn’t a label.
Being able to understand yourself and your sexuality by finding the right term for it isn’t a label.

wait what the fuck is a cissexist? no seriously i have no idea. everyday i hear new gender pronouns and sexuality and all this shit. why is everyone so concerned on labeling themselves? can’t we just leave it as “i like this not this” instead of these confusing sometimes complicated terms?
“Cissexist” refers to one who is prejudiced against those who express their gender identity in what could be called the “conventional” (you know, the ones society typically associates with “male” and “female” actions/behaviors/expressions/etc).
Just for further clarification, this is Oxford Dictionaries’ definition of cisgender.
Uh it’s also not referring to labeling oneself, but to people who are cissexist. So I don’t really understand the confusion behind your last question(s). (People don’t usually seek to label themselves with negative terms like “racist,” “sexist,” “cissexist”? Yes, phrases are complicated and can be confusing? That’s a given?)
I’m not sure how else to explain this other than to agree: yeah people should just live happily and ignore things that aren’t their business, like others’ sexuality; but clearly not everyone does that and BAM cissexism, one ironic outcome of increased awareness about sexuality and different sexualities/sexual identities/gender identities/SEX STUFF.
