Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy was cornered by a pan-sexual reporter at the Iowa State Fair who asked about his opinions on the LGBTQ community and his thoughts on same-sex couples. His response was that he is not interested in allowing the "tyranny of the minority."
The Iowa State Fair is a long-held stopping point for presidential candidates in the primary election as Iowa is the first state in the primary vote. It gives them the opportunity to interact with the voters leading up the primary.
When the pan-sexual reporter asked Ramaswamy about his thoughts on the "LGBTQ+ community," he responded by saying that he doesn't "think it's one community."
"Trans is fundamentally in tension with gay, if you ask me," Ramaswamy added. "What's your opinion."
The reporter pressed him more on the topic of same-sex couples and he said he did not have a negative view of same-sex couples.
Adding to this statement he said he instead has a "negative view of the tyranny of the minority."
Ramaswamy recounted that the United States has a history of a tyranny coming from the majority, however, in the name of protecting the minority from the majority, he said we have created a tyranny from the minority in the modern day.
"I don't think that somebody who is religious should be forced to officiate a wedding that they disagree with. I don't think somebody who is a woman who has worked really hard for her achievements should compete against a biological man in a swim competition," Ramaswamy said to her. "I don't think somebody who is a woman, that respects her bodily autonomy and dignity should be forced to change clothes in a locker room with a man."
"That is not freedom, that's oppression."
Adults, Ramaswamy said, should have the freedom to do what they want. He then added, "But do not foist that ideology onto children before children are in a position as adults to make decisions for themselves."
Ramaswamy said that the frustration that among many Americans has to do with this and that people can be punished for not agreeing with, what he classified as, the "new culture of oppression."
"Part of what makes our country great is that you and I can be civil and have this conversation and that we live in a country that gives each of us a right to speak to a presidential candidate and back," Ramaswamy concluded.
