The Bechdel Test and Race in Popular Fiction

crystalsavestheday:

1. It has to have two POC in it.

2. Who talk to each other.

No Joss Whedon show passes, neither does Supernatural, or Being Human.

Veronica Mars passes, but doesn’t pass the original Bechdel Test.

Check out a few more here.

Veronica Mars not passing absolutely astonishes me.
