Re: Star Trek Into Darkness & The Bechdel Test
Trek's problem is that it espouses equality but doesn't display it. In the sixties a crew that was 1/3 female seemed very progressive but the butterfly effect and 40 years of real world emancipation should have moved that on. I don't see it.
I think the biggest thing I noticed is women seem like to watch men engage in violent behavior in entertainment. Backed up by the fact that 44% of NFL (National Football League) spending is done by women.
