Why is this logic not used for any. other. radical. movement? That's the only question you need.

I'll break it down

Why aren't white people who feel black, or Native American, or Asian centered in racial justice movements? Why is the social structure to be resisted called "white supremacy" instead of cisracial white supremacy?

Why aren't abled people who wish they were disabled centered in the disability rights movement? Why isn't the power structure to be dismantled called "cisableism"?

Why aren't thin people who feel fat (eg anorexics) centered in the fat liberation movement? Why isn't the social structure to be resisted called "cissizeism"?

Why aren't rich people / capitalists who fetishize working class aesthetics or who identify with working class culture centered in the worker's movement? Why isn't the social structure to be resisted called ciscapitalism or cisclassism?

I completely agree with your point, though I do need to point something out: anorexic people are not "thin people who feel fat," they have a very serious mental disorder that is way more than just wanting to be thin. You also kind of imply that anorexic people are "appropriating" fat people in the way TIMs appropriate women, which is just gross. Other than that, you're spot-on.
