nubbs, she doesn't talk to her about her antisemitism, she yells at her for not hooking up with her male friend coz he's jewish, that conversation was about a man.

The fight with her mum is valid though.

I have watched this movie a few times. I think "twilight girl" yelling at her stepmother counts.

It definitely passes. Kristen Stewart's character has a fight with her stepmother.

There are at least two scenes that pass the test: Em gets into an argument with her step-mother Francy (over home decor and just generally being pretentious) and Francy talks to Em about a young woman who she used to be friends with.
