This Is Insightful, You Should Watch It of the Day: The Bechdel Test is a straightforward evaluation of the gender bias present in a given movie.

To pass, a film must meet three requirements: 1) Have at least two female characters 2) who talk to each other 3) about something other than a man. (A variant of the rule called the “Mo Movie Measure” adds the requirement that the female characters must have names.)

Feminist Frequency’s Anita Sarkeesian applies the test to the 2012 Best Picture nominees to see if the pass.

Spoiler Alert: Most don’t.

"You Don’t Have to Be Pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female.’"

"You know, it’s sort of an ironic question. It points to the whole problem. If there was a comedy with a bunch of dudes in it, and then there was another comedy with a dude in it, you wouldn’t be asking if it was weird to have a comedy with men coming out right after a comedy with men came out. You know what I mean? I think that points to that there’s still a discrepancy with the way women and men are viewed, especially in comedy. In my opinion, it’s about time — there’s so many funny women out there. I dare you to find three men who can contend with Kristen Wiig, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a room together."

Jason Segel, after being asked the question, “You mentioned Paul Feig, and Bad Teacher is coming out six weeks after Bridesmaids kinda flipped the script on female-fronted comedies. Do you think there’s any pressure on the film to perform at the box office?” (via ONTD)

"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman"

"Yeah, all Isms (sic) feed off one another but at the top of the food chain is still the white, corporate, macho, strong ox male. Not redeemable as far as I’m concerned. I mean, classism is determined by sexism because the male decides whether all other isms still exists (sic). Its up to men. I’m just saying that people can’t deny any ism or think that some are more or less subordinate except for sexism… I still think that in order to expand on all other isms, sexism has to be blown wide open…but there are thousands of green minds, young gullable (sic) 15 year old boys out there just starting to fall into the grain of what they’ve been told of what a man is supposed to be and there are plenty of tools to use. The most effective tool is entertainment."

this is why he was amazing.
