Ramaswamy Says Transgenderism In Minors Is A Mental Health Disorder

(RepublicanReport.org) – A recent poll conducted by YouGov showed that only 5% of those surveyed would vote for GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy for the Republican primary spot if elections were held today. That number puts him on par with former Vice President Mike Pence, two points behind former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, 7% behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and a whopping 46% behind former President Donald Trump. During the recent Republican debate, Ramaswamy shared some of his viewpoints on the youth of America.

On September 27, the GOP candidate participated in the second round of debates with several of his contenders at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. The businessman said he believes “transgenderism, especially in kids, is a mental health disorder.” However, the businessman doesn’t hold a medical degree. Ramaswamy’s answer was in response to a question from co-host Dana Perino, who asked if the candidate would sign a bill making it unlawful for schools to hide information about children’s identities from their parents.

The businessman said he thinks “parents have the right to know” what’s happening with their kids. He also found it hypocritical that the people who state that gender dysphoria increases their risk of suicide are the same people who don’t want to let parents know their children are in that category.

Other issues discussed on stage at the debate included Trump’s absence, the United Auto Workers strike, and healthcare. Sparks flew between Ramaswamy and Haley over his use of TikTok. She didn’t approve, calling the social media platform “dangerous.” Ukraine was also a point of contention, with Ramaswamy stating he wanted to stop funding the warring nation and Haley pushing the need to defeat Russia. Vox reported the biggest loser of the night was Ramaswamy, who not only failed to impress, but was not memorable in the slightest.
