* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' references the reverse Bechdel test in the title of [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1426 this strip]]. (The strip itself fails badly.)

* Most of the conversations in the ''Webcomic/GiftsOfWanderingIce'' are between women (it's a matriarchal world), and not about men.

** A notable failure of the test occurs in the made-for-DVD mini-episode "Clara and the TARDIS", in which companion Clara Oswald engages in a conversation with the Doctor's TARDIS (previously established in the episode "The Doctor's Wife" as being both female and possessing affection for the Doctor, to the point of breaking the show's [[TheILoveYouStigma "I Love You" Stigma]], so she counts as another female), and the entirety of their conversation - when Clara isn't complaining about being the victim of a practical joke by the TARDIS - is about the Doctor.

* In the ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' episode ''Magnetic'' Lana Lang and Chloe Sullivan are enjoying a day at the Lowell County fair, their "girls' day out" when Lana mentions Clark by name. Chloe responds with, "And we almost went through an entire day without mentioning our favorite farm boy."

Ironically, if two women discuss the Bechdel Test, they're failing the Bechdel Test, since the Bechdel Test ''involves discussing relationships with men''.

And for those curious about the pronunciation, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bechdel_test according]] to TheOtherWiki it's like "BEK-dal" (/ˈbɛkdəl/), but Bechdel herself has [[http://www.thereader.ca/2008/07/rhymes-with-rectal-alison-bechdel.html said it rhymes with "rectal"]].[[note]]Cue all the jokes about it being so because to adhere to it is a pain in the ass.[[/note]] Well, they're almost the same, anyhow.
