This article proposes two specific interventions, utilizing a critical transfeminist positioning to critique a transexclusionary perspective in writing and research on the crucial problem of necropolitics and the murder of women in Mexican society: (1) the term postmortem/transmortem politics, to reflect on the forms that imagination and political practice developed inside a Mexican trans community to deal with the necropolitics that murders trans and cis women on an everyday basis with complete impunity—in this sense, the process of mobilization, here called postmortem/transmortem, builds bridges of transfeminist alliance since it reactivates and embodies struggles against femicide and transfemicide from communities of care and vulnerability; and (2) the goals of the transfeminist movement as a source of feminist repolitization and greater inclusivity for the subject of feminisms, considering those subjects left outside or energetically moved away from the neoliberal reconversion of the critical devices of the white heterosexual and institutional feminisms that we know today as gender politics or “women's politics,” managed and operated by the state.
