    Default Anyone for a pregnancy test?

    The Favourite Niece sent me the list of required medical test certificates for her upcoming term at her University in the Philippines: chest X-ray, hepatitis B vaccination, drug test, Covid-19 vaccination…

    … and a pregnancy test.

    Male students as well.

    This, apparently, means it’s not sexist.

    You couldn’t make it up.

    I have been experiencing so much insane sh1t that I honestly cannot be surprised.

    So why a pregnancy test for women? Will they not educate a pregnant woman?

    Who is powerful enough to compel otherwise rational administrators to do such a thing?
