Yes, Genderqueer is rooted in Queer Theory which is itself rooted in Postmodernism — all of which are most at home within the walls of academia: one can almost make a career studying and arguing postmodern theory.

The term "genderqueer" began to be commonly used at the turn of the twenty-first century by youth who feel that their gender identities and/or gender expressions do not correspond to the gender assigned to them at birth, but who do not want to transition to the "opposite" gender.
Thus, while genderqueers commonly refuse to conform to traditional (trans)gender expectations, there is no one way to enact or express a genderqueer identity.
And as more and more people identify as genderqueer, the less society will be able to foster and enforce a male/female gender dichotomy.

I honestly believe that genderqueer ideology and feminism are, as I said, two sides of one coin and I think that they will eventually be able to see that and work together.
