…he liberal world order wants to continue it has to offer something for the masses beyond cheap TVs. It might be that the ability of DLC style politics to offer change for specific groups like women, for example, is coming to an end since the “big stuff” like formal anti-discrimination laws are already done and further gains run into strong opposition from the business class (e.g. paid time off).

I was thinking about this in graphical format. You start with SJW human causes, starting with….well, the VRA, if you like, The VRA and Civil Rights legislation addressed inequity in 12% of the population. The abortion movement addressed inequity in 50% of the population.
Those are large numbers of people.
Then, we moved to gay marriage. Probably 4% of the population affected by this inequity.
Then…….we went to …….where transgendered people go to potty. :-) MAYBE this inequity (if you can call it that; I know some transgendered people, and they become very adept at where they can safely access “services” and where they’ll cause a stir; and they RARELY want to cause a stir) affects…. 6/10’s of 1% of the population.
Not surprising that this latest push has met up with more successful opposition than any of the others. It’s simply not a large enough population to get political traction.
