It depends on perspective.
My daughter is on the Autism Spectrum (she was originally diagnosed with Aspergers but that term is not used now).
She refers to normal people as Neurotypical.
But yes Cis is annoying

Normal and straight imply abnormal and bent so don't seem appropriate. Normal is also uselessly vague and could be referring to anything.
I prefer "without AIDS".
I realise it's your whole shtick and you want reactions from people, but you really are a jackass at times aren't you?
The Cisalpine region (first used some time in the 16th Century) is used to describe the southern side of the Alps. Cis meaning something like 'this side' (of Rome) (coming from a Latin term).
Maybe you view the 16th Century as new, I don't know, but there we go. Some of your views seem pretty medieval to me, so maybe the 16th Century is new.
The term cisgender was first used in the early 90s. Maybe that is new? I dunno though.
Eoin Jackass, perhaps?
Don't worry... I'll resume rowing with you on the internet at some point soon,
but in the meantime, there is an urgent matter that demands immediate action!

We can't be having a dedicated numbers tourney, without everyone's favourite dedicated numbers legend.
Get on it!
Using cash to mean money generally. Cash is specifically the coins and notes, not e.g. the money sitting in your bank account. It's basically the whole reason the word exists. But for some reason people have started using it to distinguish between money and non-money assets. You have things like cash ISAs, which aren't cash. A cash ISA would be a frozen box under your bed filled with readies.
