“Transfat implies the existence of cisfat”

"Transfat” and “cisfat” both exist, although the “cisfat” term is less well known. A joke treats the terms like “transgender” and “cisgender.”

“‘Trans fats’ implies the existence of cis fats” was posted on Twitter by Desperado D. Mayor on October 31, 2019. “trans fat implies the existence of cis fat” was posted on Twitter by “a critic for all seasons” on December 12, 2019.

Wikipedia: Fat
“Cis fat” vs. “trans fat”
In nature, unsaturated fatty acids generally have double bonds in cis configuration (with the adjacent C–C bonds on the same side) as opposed to trans. Nevertheless, trans fatty acids (TFAs) occur in small amounts in meat and milk of ruminants (such as cattle and sheep), typically 2–5% of total fat. Natural TFAs, which include conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and vaccenic acid, originate in the rumen of these animals. CLA has two double bonds, one in the cis configuration and one in trans, which makes it simultaneously a cis- and a trans-fatty acid.

Oh please throughout English cis is used as the antonym of trans, cisfats and transfats for example. Cisgender or cissex are useful words with just as much backing to them as anything else used in English. Oh and how white supremacist of you to insist on two gender categories…
