I really enjoy reading recaps of Glee episodes because it’s funny to read someone trying to write a coherent narrative about a program that doesn’t actually make any fucking sense whatsoever. It’s mostly “and then this happened” followed by “yeah, I don’t know what that was about, either. WTF.” And yet I watch the show religiously, because I like music and the girls are all pretty. Which we all know is the reason why I watch any show, really.
Let’s be honest. To me the Bechdel Test boils down to:
1. It has to have at least two women in it (more than one woman to fantasize about)
2. Who talk to each other (so that I can infer subtext and imagine them having sex with each other)
3. About something besides a man (it’s hard to imagine them having sex with each other if they’re talking about boners)
I know, I know. I’m a shallow person and a bad feminist.
