Having Fun With The Bechdel Test:
Bigonkers! is MagicSo, what are some ways to have discussions of romance while at the same time passing the test?
Easy, just make it a lesbian romance. Or with one of your squids. Squids don't have gender, do they? Or you could have two women talk about the romance in general, focusing on what they do, feel etc. EDIT: Holy crap, squids are male!
But... that's cheating!

Ahr riverOr have more than one conversation. It's not that hard.
Writer's Welcome WagonDo MTF Transsexuals count as females in relation to the test?
That sums up my opinion on the subject pretty well, so all I'm going to say now is that this
Holy crap, squids are male!is one of the best sentences I've read on the internet today. Especially out of context.

Writer's Welcome WagonAgree. I'm asking the question above because there is a webcomic called Rain with a MTF main character. If she is considered female, the series would pass in about the forth or fifth strip, but if she is considered male, well...
Eye'm the cutest!

Writer's Welcome WagonDoes a MTF Transsexual count as a female in terms of the Bechdel Test?
It's easy, mmkay?What about an ambiguous FTM? I say ambiguous because the character in question is never explicitly stated to be FTM, but they are shown to be biologically female, while generally "acting" very masculine (and being played by a male actor). If they count as female the story passes the Bechdel Test, if not, the story does not pass.
At first I didn't realize I needed all this stuff...
& This test is so general stuff that I think you should just consider transexuals as the gender they changed to. But we're kind of overthinking this.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
