Hello everyone.

Sorry if I have been on a hiatus. It's just that family drama, so called "friend" drama and my flu has sort of killed some inspiration I had for art. I'm sorry.

I'll try to look for more inspiration soon, and settle things with my family and friends.

Aw, man... And here I thought online drama was bad.

Hope you're doing okay.  I'm just curious though: you ever heard of a recent trendsetter called the "Bechel Test" (or B'ich Test as I preferably call it)?

I heard the term Bechel Test, but what is it really about?

It's some bullschmit test that, I kid you not, originated from a feminist joke comic.  It dictates three rules: 

1.) Have two women in the movie with names

2.) They'd have to talk to each other

3.) They'd have to talk about something other than men


So it's totally fine talking about other stereotypical stuff like make-up, clothes or chocolate, but not okay to talk about men...  Men in any genre have the luxury to talk about women as well as other things.  I could pass the first two rules, but the third one is where I'd have to draw the line.  

Avoiding the 'valley-girl' route is one thing, but what if the men in women's conversations were fathers, brothers, cousins or other male relatives? Mentors or legal guardians even?

Because of that, the test makes female characters (namely major ones) less interesting or compelling and more of 'token female characters'.

Talk about sexist and unfair.

Not all the men women love are their boyfriends nor husbands. I talk about my late father a lot for example. Because I miss him.

Some SJWs are just cold and heartless.

Yeah, kinda makes me want to do a stamp regarding the whole idiocy and hypocrisy behind the B*ich Test and read what people's initial thoughts are toward the topic.  But I bet you'd do one with more justice (after looking up it on Wikipedia, or TV Tropes, which even I have questioned it being reliable source at this point). 

Though I did look it up on TV Tropes: apparently the men female character are allow to talk about are male relatives, people to save/catch or platonic friends.  Still, in my opinion, it doesn't hurt to mix it up (including romantic partners) once in a while as long as the romance doesn't become "Romantic Plot Tumor" where it overstays its welcome.  

I guessed my first comment kind of came off as bit too negative without doing some research due to fangirls praising the daylights out of Frozen passing the test by a fingertip since they never talk about their own father in the movie!  Only a snippet about Olaf.   Because I'm no feminist, I just don't care for the Bechel Test at this point.  Some people take jokes like this way too seriously...
