Men’s Rightser on the Bechdel Test: “Why do Women need to talk to each other ? I don’t get it.”

kittens!
Talk amongst yourselves.

So some Swedish movie theaters have decided to institute a new rating system to let viewers know whether or not the films they show pass the Bechdel Test — that is, if at any point in the film two female characters have a conversation about something other than a man.

Over in the Men’s Rights subreddit, a fella with the classy handle classypedobear takes strong exception to this terrible affront to human decency. His argument?

classypedobear 28 points 1 day ago (37|9)  This test is BS, simply. I think what they are trying to accomplish is noble but that is where the good stops.  Why do Women need to talk to each other ? I don't get it. I have plenty of female friends who get along better with males. If two women hav a conversation about their kitten or their baby ? I think it's even worse.  Bad idea overall

Wait. WHAT IS WRONG WITH TALKING ABOUT KITTENS?

Thanks, AgainstMensRights subreddit!

“Have you two Finns ever done anything that required sisu?”

Hmm… I managed to gratuate? Then there’s the long winter that requires some sisu for you to get through. It’s so dark and cold and so much snow shoveling… Imagine months of not seeing the sun except in small glimpses during the lunch break. It’s dark when you get up to go to work and it’s dark again when you get back home. After a while you’ll need sisu to get out of the bed!

“Speaking of Finland: Have you seen this Tumblr? http://depressingfinland.tumblr.com/post/65411926403/finnish-bread-advertisement-hinted-to-me-by

Oh sure, i scrolled through a couple of pages when it first started making waves. It’s probably funnier to non-finns though. 🙂

How’s the weather in Finland these days?

@Viscaria It’s been alright, right below zero but no permanent snow yet. I hope the snow comes soon though, cos it makes it so much lighter and somehow not so cold. I don’t know if that makes sense, but the frost feels worse when the ground is bare. Gotta get that christmas feel 🙂

Wait…it’s, uh, -3°C here. It’s no colder in Finland?

Thank you for proving that I’m not just whining and it is legitimately cold here currently. (Here just east of NYC, US…here is not that far north in other words)

Tangentially, pecunium? Has it been hovering between barely 40 and HOLY FUCK IT’S COLD there too? Looks like we might break 50 over the weekend, I might be comfortable without being buried in blankets! You should see me in the winter, or rather, see the bundled up ball of fabric with me in it, if I’m going to be out for any length of time when it’s below freezing — socks, leggings, tucked into another pair of socks, jeans, not pulled up until undershirt is tucked in, sweater, possibly a t-shirt under it depending how HOLY FUCK IT’S COLD we’re talking, jacket, top button buttoned AFTER wrapping in scarf, hat, other scarf, shawl, frankengloves, and, of course, my boots — things you master when taking the bus in Pittsburgh when it’s 20 and wind straight off the rivers. (If it’s truly inhumanly cold, I’ll pull out my costume stockings even…see, if I get good and properly shivering cold, every muscle in my back locks and I’ll be in pain for days, I’d rather look absurd and be able to reach my socks without wincing)

Winter, I am not a fan of it.

I also dislike winter. It’s not getting down to the 40s here until after midnight yet, still not happy about it.

The last couple days have been really bad for weather. -15C and then -20C (in the morning — it warmed up) witha windchill of -26 both days. Phone says -7 today though, so yay!

Yes, I did ask you about the weather to whine about my own. I figured, it’s gotta be worse in Finland, right? And then we would commiserate together.

Minus 31 effing degrees celsius this morning. My car started, though. Yay. Now if only they could get the heat working correctly at work, I’d be much happier. Not as happy as I’d be if it wasn’t effing winter.

Hmmm, WP ate my comment, lets try again.

I, on the other hand, am ecstatic that it finally snowed down here (only about -9C this morning); I still can’t get used to this whole ‘no significant snowfall until Nov/Dec’ bullshit we get down here in the plains. I grew up with winters that go from Sept-Apr and dammit, anything else is downright unnatural.

I have never been so glad for my recent development of a cold tolerance. I can now handle temperatures down to freezing without a coat, just a sweatshirt. Shame I lost the summer heat tolerance in exchange, though…

I am glad the Furrinati likes sleeping under the covers. Warms the bed right up.
