Do we need to specify how to pronounce "Bechdel"? Rhymes with "rectal", but IDK how to put that in without being too offensive. CorruptUser (talk) 13:29, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

- Well, we specify how to pronounce "Koch Brothers" (Coke, not Cock). CorruptUser (talk) 14:20, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
- Can we mention that Inception, which is given as an example of a movie that doesn't pass the Bechdel test, passes the Mako Maori test? This could compare the two and point at problems with the Bechdel Test. — Unsigned, by: 22.214.171.124 / talk / contribs
Could we add in a section on the "Imperator Furiosa" test?
It's a (possibly tongue-in-cheek) alternative to the Bechdel test I found out about. Essentially, it goes like this:
- Is it a work of fiction?
- If so, then are certain douchebags boycotting it, for some reason?
Just my two cents. TheMyon (talk) 22:00, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
- This really does sound like a jab at the Bechdel Test, since it doesn't measure the objective but rather the percieved equality and popularity of the movie also plays a huge factor in this. A big production will always garner some controversy, while smaller ones would pass.
For comparison what proportion of TV fiction programs (single, series, soaps, cartoons etc) pass the Bechdel Test? Anna Livia (talk) 18:35, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
- I'm not sure there's been comprehensive analysis on that. Even just a simple web search comes up with something last written in 2012, which is more like a recommended viewing list. Zero (talk - contributions) 19:24, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
- From personal observation then - a fair proportion of those TV fiction programs where there are women would pass the test: another way (along with the cliche test and other viewing bingos) of increasing the entertainment value of such programs. Anna Livia (talk) 10:33, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
