Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has declared that if a child says they are transgender, then they are really suffering a from a mental health crisis, and that it is “inhumane” to affirm their misguided belief.

“When a kid is saying their gender doesn’t match their biological sex, they’re going through a mental health struggle. That’s a mental health condition,” Ramaswamy said during an interview with The Blaze.

He continued, “The compassionate thing to do is not to affirm that confusion — that is not compassion, that is cruelty. The compassionate thing to do is figure out what’s going wrong in that kid’s life.”

“The fact that that is now beyond the pale to even explore shows how far we’ve gone as a culture,” the candidate urged.

“It is inhumane and barbaric that we live in a culture that lets this happen to children, and if we don’t learn from those mistakes, we only have ourselves to blame,” Ramaswamy further asserted.

“If you’re an adult and want to dress how you want, I’m not going to stop you. But you’re not going to change our language, our sports, how we sort locker rooms, and you’re certainly not going to change the way we indoctrinate our children,” he emphasised.


The comments come in the wake of Ramaswamy schooling a ‘LGBTQ+’ reporter who confronted the candidate, demanding to know his views on the “LGBTQ+ community.”

Ramaswamy told the person that he doesn’t “think it’s one community,” explaining that as far as he can tell “Trans is fundamentally in tension with gay, if you ask me.”

He then went on to provide a stark reality check for the activist:
