Ah yes, that thing. For those not familiar with it, the Bechdel test is considered one of the bases for testing whether a work presents the female perspective: 1) There must be more than one female character. 2) These multiple female characters should speak to one another at least once. 3) They should talk about something other than a man. I wonder what you all think: is it possible to present the female perspective in a plot without passing the Bechdel test? This is going to sound awful because it'll sound deliberate, but do any of you ever find other methods work just as well?
