(SPOILER ALERT) I've watched it yesterday. There is an interaction between Rocky and Diddy about surfing and moving to California. I did not notice any reference to men during that scene. In the 75 minutes that follow, Rocky is the only woman, but the gender of the characters is very important. As it turns out, reproduction and parenthood is a major plot point and the turkey baster scene is the reason why this is horror instead of home invasion thriller. I don't know how women reacted to that, but I found it less offensive than usual rape. And Rocky's revenge is super satisfying, so I guess all that was worth it for me as a moviegoer.

Rocky and Diddy talk twice about surfing, going to the beach and moving to California. It passes.
