This tumblr post annoyed me: http://sexyandgeeky.tumblr.com/post/47361432727/doctor-who-bechdel-test
And while I did post a tl;dr in response, it got me thinking about the Bechdel Test and how it’s misused by people as a way to judge something without properly discussing the content. Like aggregator review scores, the test doesn’t have room to properly describe the plot, characters or context of the result – so I figured I’d make a quick podcast about the ways the text can be used, and the ways it should not.
Music: Ponky Fonky Ferret, by Goto80 & The Uwe Schenk Band, from their album The Ferret Show.
NOTE: The download is sadly down at the moment, mediafire didn’t like it.
Trying to get it back up soon.
