‘Doctor’ Rajith Kumar Says Women Who Wear Jeans Give Birth To Transgenders And Autistic Children


Not too long ago, a professor from Kozhikode ridiculed female students in his college for revealing their breasts like “slices of watermelon”. Before that, a college principal from Mumbai said PCOS — polycystic ovary syndrome — happens to women who dress like men. Even before that, a nursing school in Kollam district forbade its female students to lock doors while changing, for they were worried that the girls were up to “lesbian sex”.

Now, a teacher from Kerala claims that women who wear jeans — wait for it — give birth to transgender children.

Meet Rajith Kumar, a botany lecturer at Kalady’s Sree Sankara College, who has a long history of coming up with sexist and homophobic theories. This is what this ‘doctor’ said on a live TV show recently:

“…a woman who dresses up like a man, what will be the character of the child she gives birth to? These children are called ‘transgenders’ or ‘napumsakam’. Hijra,”.

– Rajith Kumar

There’s more…

A report on The News Minute points out that Rajith Kumar had stressed that “good” children are born to men and women who dress and live as men and women (whatever that means):

“When a woman degrades her womanhood and a man degrades his manhood, the girl born to them is man-like. The child this girl later gives birth to will be a transgender.”

– Dr Rajith Kumar

That’s not all. ‘Doctor’ Rajith Kumar also believes that autistic children are born to ‘rebel’ men and women, especially women who wear jeans.

The one good thing that came out of this incident is that KK Shylaja, the state minister for health and social welfare has barred Rajith from participating in government programmes.

“Rajith Kumar has been consistently propagating superstitious and sexist ideas. We are mulling legal action against him for making such derogatory comments,” the minister said.

Rajith, however, is adamant about his opinion. Speaking on a TV show recently, he defended his remarks saying they were “based on science and years of experience”.
