Government Polytechnic College in Bandra recently divided their canteen by creating a space separately for girls. They say this was done to curb sexual harassment. The girls of this college might also have to start wearing a salwar kameez instead of the usual white shirt and black trousers, because — Indian culture?

Principal Swati Deshpande explains: “I have heard theories on why girls suffer from PCODs (Poly Cystic Ovarian Diseases) 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.” Thank you for enlightening me Ma’am. Now I know that if I were to ever have a girl child, she should never be allowed to wear pants and suits, lest her chances of reproduction be reduced.

All those ‘experts’ calling her statement ‘unscientific’—they have no clue about what they are talking about.

What’s interesting is how the management has decided to use ropes for segregating the two sexes. They should also consider putting up a curtain in the classrooms to separate the girls from the boys. That’s a much better idea.

One more thing: If the former students are known to enter the campus and misbehave with girls, do you think a rope will keep them away?
