In a video posted on Twitter, Ramaswamy noted he is "not angry with trans people," but that he's "frustrated with the culture that venerates a mental health illness that we should be treating, instead of actually throwing kerosene on and fueling to spread like wildfire across this country.""I know you're not supposed to say many of those things out loud, but I just think it's important that we speak truth, because that's got to be the first step towards getting to a solution. And that's what I'm hoping to deliver," he concluded.
5% of American adults under 30 “identify” as trans. 5 years ago, 0.6% of 18-29 year olds said they were trans. That’s not “visibility.” This is a social contagion of a mental health epidemic. pic.twitter.com/SOFpQSDrpC— Vivek Ramaswamy (@VivekGRamaswamy) June 25, 2023
