Don't forget when gays were actively hunted out of the RCMP. Cancel Culture?

Didn't Biden reverse Trump's ban on transsexuals in the military, or something along that line.

We're seeing a lot of social and cultural changes the last 5 years or so.  With change, sometimes it can be messy, as we saw in the 1960's, which produced racists murdering MLK, to the Black Panther offering armed protection.  I hope at some point we reach some kind of equilibrium and we figure out which ideas are good and bad, because right now we're throwing all these new ideas on the wall and seeing which ones stick.  Some are good, some aren't.  Trial and error for society.  I have to have faith that most people in society are reasonable and we'll eventually figure out which ideas we go to far and  also when change works out well.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
