VALENCIA, Sayak. Transfeminism is not a genderism. Pléyade (Santiago) [online]. 2018, n.22, pp.27-43. ISSN 0718-655X.

The present work discusses how transfeminisms are network movements that, once faced with the emergence of necropolitical violence against feminized subjects, they display a consideration of the transit states of gender, migration, cross-cultural contexts, vulnerability, race and class as transversal spaces to build emancipatory alliances against cis-hetero-patriarchal and racist violence. Thus, transfeminists movements rise to open spaces and discursive fields for all those practices and subjects either left out or emphatically demarcate themselves outside the neoliberal reconversion of feminism’s critical apparatus - a reconversion that is currently known as biological policies or cis-women policies. For this reason, transfeminism’s main objective is the repolitization and de-essentialization of g-local feminist movements. This, in opposition to government’s and NGO’s discourses that capture and standardize feminist languages in order to use this them as a strategy of deactivation of feminist movements, reducing them to an orthopedic critique that is in turn re-appropriated by market’s and state’s neoliberal circuits.
