Although Peat says a half cup can be good for removing all kinds of stuff from the intestines he seems to say more negative things about beans than grains....I think you are right about Peats stance on beans. or rather legumes. I don't think he has a dogmatic view on it. Firstly there's great difference between different types. He also seems quite positive to chickpeas (am I being bean-illiterate now and hummus is chickpeas? anyways). I can't personally tolerate more than a spoon of legumes like twice a week but I think Peats main point is to not rely on legumes as protein-source as some people advocate.
And there's room for individual bio-feedback :)
"Special preparation is needed to reduce the toxicity of seeds, and in the case of beans, these methods are never very satisfactory."- Ray Peat
