Cisgender and cisgendered are terms used in contrast to transgender and transgendered. Where transgendered individuals feel uncomfortable with the gender (and accompanying gender roles) assigned to them at birth, cisgendered individuals are at ease with the gender (and gender roles which are) assigned to them at birth.

It is a neoligism (gotta love new words) used within the queer (I use this word to encompass the LGBTQ+ community) community and within identity studies.
