I think I am.
But does it count as non-cisgendered if I really, really wish I had a dick?

not really the word I use.

It's got a definition and you either fit that definition or you don't. I don't use the word homo sapien to refer to myself either but if the question read "Are you a homo sapien" I'd just say "yes" and not "not really the word I use."

I'm an I don't really care whatever I'm called but if other people care about how they are called that's cool

Nah, I'm good with my answer. Thanks, though.

I think it's a bit different as an academic/demographic term vs. the terms individuals use to describe their identity. There’s often an emphasis on self-selection of terms, with gender identity in particular nowadays. I’m sure some would consider it inappropriate to insist that a gender minority use the term ‘trans’ if they were perceived to fit the technical definition, but didn’t personally identify with it.

Personally, I don’t care much what I’m called as far as neutral descriptors go, but I don't consider my gender to be a salient part of my identity. Same with my nationality and (lack of) religious beliefs; I don’t tend to think about myself on those dimensions, so I don’t find any representation/affirmation in the labels. I’ll tick boxes on a form for them where the definitions are appropriate, though.

I'm sure part of that is that I'm fortunate enough to not experience personal or social conflict with respect to those things. I'm also sympathetic to ‘cisgender’ being used to avoid the connotations of 'normal' (albeit whether it actually helps is another matter).

I am not cisgender.

But cisgender people are so cisgender.
