Re: Star Trek Into Darkness & The Bechdel Test
But this kind of attitude misses the point. It's a tougher call on issues like race where there are many options to choose from but gender - absolutely not. Women make up more than 50% of the population and they should be 50% of the characters in Trek. It's that simple.
No it's not. They should use the people they need to tell the story they want to tell. No one should be forced to 'head count' characters. If Trek is unsatisfactory in this regard, you can simply withhold your money.
