* Regarding the famous [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/zizyphus/34585797/ strip]] that gave use the BechdelTest: The woman says that she will only see a movie if it passes her test. But how does she know if a movie passes the test unless she sees it first?
** Movie trailers, reviews, interviews and other publicity can reveal violations.
*** Can, but all too often ''don't''. Especially at the time the strip was written. Also consider that the all it takes to supposedly pass the test is a single brief conversation that in an of itself can still be incredibly sexist (just as long as it isn't about a man).
