The best I can tell, “inclusivity” now means “special endorsement.”
If no one ever said anything, in society and within institutions, everyone would still be included. But these days, we’re told we must be inclusive by way of particular recognition.
So goes the evolution of language.
Apropos of such a change, the Biden administration released a report last month on its promotion of transgenderism across the planet.
The announcement boasted a first:
U.S. Agencies Are Advancing the Human Rights of LGBTQI+ Persons Around the World
Today, the U.S. Government released a first of its kind progress report on implementation of President Biden’s Memorandum on Advancing the Human Rights of LGBTQI+ Persons Around the World. The progress demonstrates the U.S. commitment to promoting and protecting the human rights of LGBTQI+ people around the world through our diplomacy and foreign assistance.
The fact sheet hailed “Advancing Inclusive Democracy” and the launch of a $5 million campaign:
Advancing Inclusive Democracy: During the Summit for Democracy, the U.S. supported a statement from the Equal Rights Coalition on Democracy and LGBTQI+ rights which affirms that promoting and protecting the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons is essential for democratic renewal. As part of the Presidential Initiative for Democratic Renewal, the State Department also committed up to $5 million to launch the Global LGBTQI+ Inclusive Democracy and Empowerment (GLIDE) Fund, a new program under the Global Equality Fund that will facilitate the participation and leadership of LGBTQI+ community members in democratic institutions. Also, during the Summit for Democracy, [United States Agency for International Development (USAID)] committed to launch a new Global Development Alliance to support LGBTQI-led civil society organizations to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, engage in democratic processes, and build networks of allies. USAID intends to commit $5M USD over five-years to this program involving substantial capacity building opportunities and direct grantmaking to LGBTQI+ and transgender-led organizations around the world.
Politics is an interesting arena. In 1972, Joe Biden was elected to the U.S. Congress. He was 29 years old. He held the office of Delaware senator from 1973 to 2009. For 36 years, so far as I’m aware, he never uttered a word indicating the existence of those who identify as the opposite of their sex. Nor, to my knowledge, did he do so across eight years as vice president.
With all the current talk of “erasure” related to those within the gender identity movement, might that serve to erase him from being considered an “ally”?
It would seem no.
Undeniably, he’s making major moves:

The white-haired revolutionary is “Taking Swift and Meaningful Responses to Human Rights Abuses of LGBTQI+ Persons Abroad”:
[A]cross the globe, U.S. diplomats and U.S. development professionals are at the forefront of highlighting LGBTQI+ human rights attacks and abuses. For example, in Poland, U.S. Embassy Warsaw supported “Words Matter,” a video featuring members of the Polish LGBTQI+ community reading and reacting to homophobic comments posted in response to the Embassy’s social media campaign for Pride Month. The “Words Matter” video reached over 12 million Poles and was widely covered by both Polish and international media. In Guatemala, following murders of Guatemalan leaders in the transgender community in June 2021, U.S. Embassy Guatemala City issued a statement condemning the murders and urging full investigations.
Additionally, Joe declares, he’s “Building International Coalitions” and “Rescinding Inconsistent Policies.”
Moreover, the White House is “Reducing Bias-Motivated Violence”:
Agencies continue to take steps to reduce bias motivated violence and hate crime targeting LGBTQI+ persons. … To strengthen knowledge on patterns of violence, discrimination, and appropriate responses, in September 2021, the Department of State launched a new partnership with the Library of Congress to evaluate existing academic research for linkages between bias, discrimination, and violence, including against LGBTQI+ persons. The goal is to better understand which criminal justice interventions can prevent escalations in violence.
It’s an amazing thing — the President is presented as hero to a group which, so far as I know, he never once indicated had any relevance to actuality.
But so goes pandering, and so goes politics.
