Beverly and Greta have a brief conversation in the girls bathroom about Beverly's reputation. It's a short exchange but it just passes.

Dave disagreed with the rating and said:
Greta is bullying Beverly, specifically for her perceived promiscuity with boys. It's a bit of a grey area i suppose but I would say since it's the only interaction that could even qualify, this is worth examining as a scene that doesn't pass.

Beverly and greta talk about beverly's reputation....of being a slut and doing every boy in school. So i think it does not pass the test.

Matt disagreed with the rating and said:
I think that although superficially it passes the test, the conversation was about her reputation as a slut... which is really about sexism and men. I don't think it counts.

I also think this movies fails the test. When one female character is bullying another for being "a slut" and sleeping with a bunch of guys, that is a conversation about men.

They don't talk about a man.
I don't care about bullshit semantics and stipulations.

That's called MOVING THE GOALPOST and is a Informal LOGICAL FALLACY

James disagreed with the rating and said:
There's only one scene of a female bully teasing a female. The bully teases her for promiscuity with boys. strike one. And this shouldn't be considered talking to each other. Strike two.
