Easily passes. There are many named female characters: Ansiedad and her mother Grace (who are the two protagonist's), Tavita, Alice Harford, Jill Armstrong, Valerie, etc. Men come up some. However, the brunt of the conversations in the film and the film itself mostly revolve around Grace and Ansiedad's relationship and Ansiedad's plan to "come of age."

In addition, the test barely even passes the reverse test as there are only a couple brief conversation between named men and these often include or are about women.
