During a recent interview on “Meet the Press,” Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy and NBC News anchor Chuck Todd engaged in a heated debate over the issue of biological s*x and gender confusion in children and teenagers.

Todd questioned Ramaswamy’s position that it is cruel to affirm gender confusion in minors, rather than allowing them the freedom to make their own healthcare decisions.

Ramaswamy explained that existing laws already limit what minors can do with their bodies, such as purchasing and consuming tobacco.

He emphasized that it is legitimate to prevent [certain] mutilation or chemical castration through puberty blockers for the purpose of transitioning. Todd offered an opposing view, suggesting that gender should be viewed as a spectrum rather than binary.

Ramaswamy, however, stood by his understanding of biology and his confidence in the binary nature of gender. A Harvard-educated biologist and Yale-educated lawyer, he explained that the biological definition of gender is determined by an individual’s chromosomes. Women have two X chromosomes, while men have both an X and a Y chromosome.

Despite Todd’s claims that scientific research supports the idea of gender as a spectrum, Ramaswamy cited the DSM-5 (the accepted handbook for mental disorders) to support his argument that gender dysphoria is classified as a mental health disorder. He argued that it is not compassionate to affirm a child’s gender confusion and promote gender transitioning when a deeper issue may be at the root of their distress.

“Gender dysphoria for most of our history, all the way through the DSM-5, has been characterized as a mental health disorder,” Ramaswamy told Todd.

“And I don’t think it’s compassionate to affirm that. I think that’s cruelty,” he added of the idea that gender is a spectrum. “When a kid is crying out for help … let’s be compassionate and get to the heart of that rather than playing this game as though we’re actually changing our medical understanding for the last 100 years.”

  • Past research has shown that trans is a mental illness of a child often brought on by the mental condition of a mother who has a mental issue, usually having to do with a hatred of men or a weak husband.

    • And the overwhelming majority of adolescents with gender dysphoria will outgrow that malady by their teenage years. Give them their chance to grow and mature naturally without butchery and permanent sterilization. The Left clamors to reduce world population, and this trans-craze is really just another method towards that end, something like the COVID jabs.

    • Sick parents or other “authorities” who have control of the child, push the child into ‘presenting’ as the opposite gender and pushing children to question their sexuality and receive overt ‘medical care’ just to prove the parents’ or authorities’ own point is a most damaging form of Child Abuse.

      “Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy”
      The Munchausen Syndrome (MS) is a mental disorder that causes a person with a deep-seated need for attention to fake sickness or injury. Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSP) is a disorder in which the caretaker of a child either makes up fake symptoms or the parent causes real symptoms to make it appear as though the child is injured or ill. The term “by proxy” means “through a substitute”. Though MSP is primarily a mental illness, it’s also considered a form of severe Child Abuse.
      BTW: There is no such thing as Transsexual, or ‘gender dysphoric’, it is only people with mental problems!

      Sex or gender is definitely NOT “Assigned at Birth”! Your mother’s gynecologist was not stupid and made an error, nor were your parents and your pediatrician imbeciles!
      You are the sex that God “assigned” to you at your conception, your DNA was set for LIFE the moment you were conceived!
      There are at least 6,500 Genetic differences between Males and Females and every cell in the body proclaims the difference! Surgery, hormones, drugs, or ‘feelings’ cannot and will not change those scientific FACTS!

  • Funny how about the trans not allowed on the floor! Was because she was using her group to makes a seen in the chamber against the rules he/she/it agreed to! Throwing a temper tantrum or flooding the room with people to force it’s opinion is not the way it works. Now claiming anything after what she/it /he did is a joke at best! It needs to be the one saying sorry for acting and promoting it’s Democrat ignorance! And her tantrum throwing group should be band from attending! What would happen if armed group of 2nd amendment people did that to promote their cause?
