I think the genre of movie this film belongs to presents a unique situation... if it's lesbians should they be tested on whether or not they talk about men? I understand the premise of the test, but much talk of men in sexually or romantically motivated in films and hence not applicable.

The girls who identify as lesbians do talk about men to each other. Namely Megan's boyfriend when they ask her if she is attracted to him and if they have had sex and she says I'm a christian, Hilary then says it's really easy to be a prude when you aren't attracted to him...
