Didn't Biden reverse Trump's ban on transsexuals in the military, or something along that line.
I have no idea.
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.
I don't think there's been any new ideas. I think the people who've been silenced and oppressed are finally finding communities of support and standing up for themselves. They were always there but were forced to hide, shamed into denying their own existence, or in some cases literally murdered.
