Women Perform Better Than Men When Japan Medical School Stops Fixing Exam Results

University dean previously said ‘women mature faster mentally than men’

by Kate O’Malley

Women have outperformed men in entrance examinations for a Japanese medical school that previously admitted to tampering with its exam scores to give men an advantage.

Juntendo University in Tokyo said that of the 1,679 women who sat the exam earlier this year, 8.28 per cent had passed, compared to 7.72 per cent of the 2,202 male candidates.

This marks the first time in seven years the pass rate among women was higher than that among men at the private university, according to Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.

• Man ‘Ordered to Pay his Ex-Wife £142,000 as Compensation for 27 Years of Household Chores’

Man ‘ordered to pay his ex-wife £142,000 as compensation for 27 years of household chores’

June 19, 2019

An Argentinian man has been ordered to pay his ex-wife £142,000 because she left her career to raise their children and do chores during their 29-year marriage.

The woman, identified only as ML, is now 70 and has an economics degree but is considered too old to get a job.

Argentina’s National Appeal Court ruled that the woman faced financial hardship following the separation, while the man, also 70, had ‘a good time’.

They got married in 1982 before separating 27 years later, in 2009, and divorcing in 2011.

• Conservative Christian Preacher Stephen Allwine Thinks Murdering His Wife Better Than Divorcing Her

Conservative Christian Preacher Stephen Allwine Thinks Murdering His Wife Better Than Divorcing Her

I watched a true-crime program about a guy named Stephen Allwine.

Stephen Allwine, and his wife, Amy, belonged to a conservative Christian church. I believe the show said they attended the Church of God.

The narrator doing the voice over on this show explained that the Allwine’s denomination strongly disapproved of divorce, so rather than divorce his wife, Stephen murdered her.

You know we have one messed up interpretation of the Bible, and some very messed up theology, when churches and some Christians make divorce out to be so bad that it looks worse than murder.

Murder becomes preferable to divorce to some. That is where some Christian attitudes and legalism leads.

This is my second post like this on this blog – I did another one just like it awhile ago about another married Christian couple, where the husband hired men to kill his wife, because he belonged to a church that felt that divorce was almost an unforgivable sin.

This Allwine guy also had affairs on his wife. Prior to killing his wife, he was on the website for married cheaters: “Ashley Madison.”

Here are some links to news reports about Allwine’s murder of his wife:

Police: Man who cheated using Ashley Madison, tried hiring hit man on dark web in bid to murder wife

January 2018

A Minnesota preacher in a failing marriage, who failed in his attempt to hire a hitman using bitcoin on the dark web, also failed to convincingly stage his wife’s murder as a suicide — a final misstep that ultimately led to his arrest, officials said.

…The couple, who met at a Christian college and were active members of their church together also adopted a son.

Stephen Allwine, a religious man who served as a church elder and deacon at a United Church of God congregation also offered marriage counseling to couples having trouble.

• How Male Supremacy Led to Murder by S. Hendrix

The following article is about Scott Paul Beierle, who hated women, and who one day walked into a Florida yoga studio and shot several women – at least two of whom died.

How Male Supermacy Led to Murder

by Steve Hendrix, June 2019

Snippets:

…His name was actually Scott Paul Beierle, a 40-year-old former FSU graduate student who had driven 250 miles for a yoga class in the town where he had twice been arrested for groping female students and banned from campus.

Beierle was an avowed hater of women, a man who repeatedly grabbed women in real life and fantasized about raping and killing them in the horrific collection of lyrics, poetry and novels he began writing as a teenager.

His interactions with the opposite sex had gotten him fired from teaching jobs, booted from the Army and hauled before the principal of his high school.

He traced his fury at women — “Just beneath their blushing lashes and their innocent smiles lies the most rancid and putrid, sickening essences” — to the girls who both aroused and frustrated him in eighth grade.

D-Day’s Forgotten Woman by Cal Thomas

Oh, complementarians and other sexists won’t like this. They don’t like real-life and biblical examples of women who don’t live live the way they think women should live life. Examples like these are so inconvenient to their worldview and prejudices.

Without the daring and heroism of Virginia Hall, the war might have been prolonged

by Cal Thomas
June 5, 2018

Observances of the 75th anniversary of D-Day are properly focusing on the troops and the architect of Operation Overlord, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who freed Europe from Hitler and his Nazi hordes.

One person — a woman — has not received the credit she deserves for her efforts with the French Resistance. Without her daring and heroism, the war would most assuredly have been prolonged and many more lives would have been lost.

Her name was Virginia Hall and her story is told in a new book by Sonia Purnell titled “A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II.” The title does not exaggerate Virginia’s contributions to the Allied victory.

Sports Gear Designed for Women’s Bodies—Not Stereotypes

Women, We Have A Problem by L. Steele

From sneakers to space suits, most gear is still designed for men’s bodies – and women are irked. How to avoid brands that just ‘shrink it and pink it’ and find bikes, kicks and backpacks that fit you right

May 2019

When it comes to sports gear and apparel, women don’t always get what they want – and they rarely get what they need, which in the worst cases can lead to life-affecting injuries.

In an essay published by the Guardian in March, cyclist Hannah Dines detailed her experience having to undergo surgery after years riding bike saddles that didn’t properly pressure-map her groin led to chronic inflammation and long-term trauma.

She had just trained through the pain. While men can comfortably straddle most bike seats, she wrote, “female cyclists sit right on the money.”

Feeding A Family Isn’t A Job For Mothers Alone

In an era of processed food, wholesome home cooking is more important than ever – and men need to share that burden

May 2019

… For too long, women have been fed the idea that the task of feeding children is all on them. This does not always work out well, for either mother or child.

… I somehow got it in my head that the job of feeding the children was all mine. It is still too easy for the mother to become the only one who plans the meals, shops for ingredients, schelps them home, lovingly cooks them and watches anxiously for a child’s reaction to his or her first taste of something new.

No wonder many families in the modern world opt for convenience foods instead. As the food writer Deb Perelman observed, “There are many good reasons to never cook at home.”

Only now that it is ceasing to be norm for mothers to stand laboriously stirring a pot can we appreciate just how much we owe to the heroically thankless, everyday cooking of our own mothers.
