Tokyo Medica University intentionally lowered women's test scores...

https://qz.com/1346588/tokyo-medical...ecessary-evil/

Tokyo Medical University for years doctored the test scores of female applicants to admit fewer women because school officials believed that once women got married and had children they would be unable to fulfill their emergency shifts at hospitals.

Japanese media reports said today (Aug. 2) that the university had since 2011 been altering the test scores of females to make them lower after it recorded a growing number of women getting accepted to the school. The test scores were rigged so that no more than 30% of the successful candidates would be women.
Yikes. In Japan, it's even legal to set gender ratios and the only reason they got in trouble was because they weren't upfront about it, so double yikes.

All the rejected candidates were recruited for bukkake videos, so it all worked out. That’s how an economy works.

The women gave up on their unnatural desire to become physicians and are now fulfilling their moral obligation of making babies. Everyone has been put in their proper place.

So, why is it so hard to believe that there's a gender wage gap?

Japan is a country where companies can require a photo along with a resume for job applicants, and it's perfectly legal. No uggos or old people need apply!
