This article reflects on the continued importance of feminist and queer activism and scholarship to understanding US imperialism, whether its subjects are taken to be war, securitization, and militarism; globalizing neoliberal capitalism; or ecological devastation. It explores the rape and sexualized torture of Arab/Muslim men in the war on terror, the targeting of women as the proper subjects of microfinance and other credit products, and women, men, cyborgs, and sex in speculative fiction about climate change.
