I agree that 95% of women in media are used simply as a romantic interest with minor plot uses, but we shouldn't just make certain interactions necessary to prove it isn't sexist. We simply need to stop only throwing women in as romantic pawns. Throw in a few females who have no bearing to romance, only friendship or plot or whatever.

Yeah, but the steps are ineffective. The Bechdel test is horribly inaccurate. As an example, look at "Manos" the Hands of Fate. One of the worst movies ever made, horribly misognyist, and it passes the Bechdel test anyway.

I do agree that some measure should be taken, but not this specific measure. It doiesn't work and it just serves to make feminists look bad when people react like they did in the comments and think feminism is stupid.

feminism isn't stupid, the concept of feminism bred by reactionaries and extremism is. The bechdel test is flawed, but it's a well known indicator of female writing that has been implemented as a first step towards the goal of...treating female characters like human beings?

I didn't mean to imply it was, I was saying that people reacted poorly to it and started thinking as much.

It's good that there's a first step, yes, but that alone won't be enough. There need to be improvements on it before it'll be effective. Still, I have to admit that you make a good point about it being a well-known effort to treat women like human beings.

It's definitely not enough, but if just this iota of consideration caused so much grief, maybe baby steps are better to start with.

Yes, and actually I should rephrase that, there is usually only one guy in the movie if you discount cameo appearances like waiters and taxi drivers, unless of course shes sleeping with both of them and/or can't choose between them. Then there are two guys, but those two still never pass that "test".
#55 - Protomix (11/07/2013) [-]
The bechdel test exists because it's a measure of an issue in female writing in general television, not an ideal check but a good indicator nonetheless. I know what you mean when you're saying this but even when a guy in this movie doesn't pass the test, it's more for relevance of writing and he's still treated as a standalone character.
