After overcoming a tragic gaming addiction, writing for major industry news sources and Lifetime and training my dog to do fist bumps I launched FemPop to create a place where people could talk about gender and movies and television and games and junk.
I also bake a mean buttermilk pie.
So, there’s the Bechdel test.
I’ve got another test that works just as well. The Sexy Lamp test. If you can take out a female character and replace her with a sexy lamp, YOU’RE A FUCKING HACK.
