This chapter investigates the contemporary political, economic, and social conditions that are shaping emerging social movements, including trans resistance. It introduces the term “neoliberalism” to describe these conditions. It examines how social movements have conservatized in recent decades, using the development of a lesbian and gay rights movement focused on legal recognition through marriage and military service as an example and suggesting that trans politics might learn from these developments and avoid these pitfalls.
