In a shocking misogynistic statement, a woman principal of a college in Mumbai said that polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in women was a result of them dressing like men.

Furthermore, she went on to say that dressing up like men caused gender role reversal in women’s heads, diminishing their desire to reproduce.

“I have heard theories on why girls suffer from PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease) at an early age. When they dress like men, they start thinking or behaving like them. There is a gender role reversal in their head. Due to this, the natural urge to reproduce diminishes right from a young age and therefore they suffer from problems like PCODs,” the principal of a Govt Polytechnic College was quoted as saying.

The statement clearly reflects how deeply-rooted misogyny is in our country, when even qualified women like the college principal go out and demean their own counterparts.
