Wow - this is a first.
I have never seen a feminism-related post go the path of cisgendered, before.
How does that piggyback its way onto everything?

Modern Feminism is simply an encompassing rights movement such as the gay movement is. It affects far more people than just women hence why it exists. Most movements that only actually "affect" a small group don't carry much influence historically speaking. For your movement to carry influence it has to benefit more than simply your oppressed group. It has to be encompassing in the rights it affords and feminism generally is.
Let me hash it down for you if that was a little brief.
Feminism and the gay movement are not individually powerful in and of themselves. They lack individual influence. They lack actual high profile public figures on average. However they do something that causes people that are neither feminists nor gay to "Flux their movement with cash and influence". They afford societal rights and equality and influence to all sorts of oppressed and or historically discriminated groups that have extreme wealth, an example is what I will call "White Tech Nerd Faction". Most white nerds are rich. They also generally benefit from any and all movements that essentially level the field of social equality and rights for everybody in society. So there's conservatives great dilemma that they're nowhere near to solving. Conservatives are fighting unseen factions that finance and promote movements that, while not being a part of, do afford them greater overall equality in the world, hence they fund them from behind.

The same its always been about, equality.
