There is a test that feminists came up with that half of all movies fail, including many popular movies. And it is such easy criteria it makes you wonder how it is possible so many movies fail this criteria.
There has to be at least one scene where two named females hold a conversion about anything other than a man.

Right off the bat, what's silly about this premise is that it refers to the The Bechdel Test as something that "Feminists came up with" assuming some kind of uniform hive mind, instead of something that one person named Alison Bechdel came up with.

Some googling reveals that Alsion Bechdel is a cartoonist. Apparently the "Bechdel Test" was originally mentioned in 1985 in a comic strip called "Dykes to Watch Out For". It's something that an unnamed non-recurring fictional character discusses as influencing her movie choices, though i can't imagine how someone could know this about a movie one hasn't seen, especially before the internet. So it's not exactly scientific in origin.

You don't really need the Bechdel test to notice the dearth of female characters in the original Star Wars. There's Leia, and then there's, uh...

On the other hand, Leia is awesome. She's an action hero and a political leader, and this was pretty ground breaking in the seventies.


Essentially, I think it's ridiculous to assert that "feminists shouldn't like" anything for any reason, but as a universal gauge, the Bechdel test is particularly iffy. It's useful for illustrating how the media fails to reflect the reality of the world we live in, but it's only one dimension out of several. The wikipedia article on the Bechdel test has a section on "limitations".

>>The Bechdel test only indicates whether women are present in a work of fiction to a certain degree. A work can pass the test and still contain sexist content, and a work with prominent female characters can fail the test. A work may fail the test for reasons unrelated to gender bias, such as because its setting works against the inclusion of women (e.g., Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose, set in a medieval monastery).

>>In an attempt at a quantitative analysis of works as to whether or not they pass the test, at least one researcher, Faith Lawrence, noted that the results depend on how rigorously the t

Does anyone know how to access the forum through editing the HOSTS file if you can? Someone posted instructions on it once, but that was about 1-2 years ago. And I have no idea why I would be banned if I am.

Me and a friend were getting nostalgic at the earlier days of the sphere when it was much more active, and it reminded me that some namefriend put up a large sphere folder up online to download some time ago.

Just wondering.. has anyone got the link to it.. if it's still here? or at least know who put it up so I can search for it easier? It had TC screenshots, thread screenshots, pics of Sphere people, and of course, pics of boxxy - basically all things sphere-related.

And - if not - please post any screenshots you have of the earlier days. Not just CC - TC, unichan, formspring and Twitter are welcome too!

We thank you in advance!
