Kerala professor makes misogynist comments against women, calls them scientifically backed

A Kerala professor from Kalady has come under server criticism following his misogynist comments against women, which he has defended by calling them scientifically backed. As per reports, the professor named Dr. Rajith Kumar, who teaches botany at Sree Sankara College, made a claim on a panel discussion that women who wear jeans give birth to transgender children.

This has been interpreted by people as not only being a misogynistic statement, but also being a transphobic statement for portraying transgenders as some form of undesirable individuals.

The Newsminute has reported that while being on TV, the professor sensationally claimed that he had a scientific reason as to why transgender and autistic children are born. As per him, women who dress up like a man (by wearing jeans), result in giving birth to a child with a transgender character.

Its not all and reports have claimed that he even targeted autism by stating that children who are born to ‘rebel parents’ suffer from the disorder. He supposedly made this point by showing a video clip of autistic children with their parents, while exclaiming how the mother was wearing jeans.

Following the furore over these statements, the Kerala state government is considering taking legal action against the professor. The announcement regarding the same was made by state health minister KK Shailaja, after adding that the professor has been a repeat offender when it comes to spreading sexist ideas and superstitions.

The professor though has refused to back off from his statements by asserting that his remarks were scientific and were backed by years of academic experience. In a Facebook video he claimed that the channel had aired his views selectively.

Similarly a few days back, another college professor named Jouhar Munavvir had made objectionable, sexually coloured comments against women. Following this a non-bailable case was registered against him.
