What is the most 'radical' movement in American culture today?

I'm trying to figure out which modestly-sized movements are most antithetical to conventional modern day culture (excluding direct political movements - I'm thinking something akin to how Gay Rights were perceived 50+ years ago)

Polyamory? Prisoners' rights? Animal Rights?
Furthermore, which of these most radical movements are most likely to grow to acceptance in the longish term? (e.g. 50/75 years)
If I had to take a guess, I would wager Polyamory as it's still a relatively small movement, yet seems to have far less of a following than Animal Rights and Prisoner Rights, and I'm unsure how long it might take to become part of (especially American) culture.
That said, what are your thoughts? What might I not be thinking of?
