Alexa, What Is The Bechdel Test?

Filed under: basketball, The Bucket — nedryerson @ 7:35 am


Hey, look! It’s the girls basketball team, suited up and practicing with basketballs and stuff. It’s great to have a reminder that student athletics are for everyone and that girls can reap the same benefits as boys from participating.  So what are we illustrating today? Teamwork? Character building? No? Oh right, dumb boys like Teddy Demarco amuse themselves with lame, dated gibes about Alexa Watson’s name.

It initially looked like Alexa was trying to rise above the dumb jokes and focus on her path to athletic and academic excellence. But now it looks like maybe Alexa likes the attention or at least she finds it amusing enough to wager with her teammates about it. 

I wonder if she ever threatens any of the boys with bonks on the head.


  1. The ‘Alexa’ jokes make sense because this device has become a household term and it’s use in a humorous manner is believable, but ‘Watson’ jokes from some immature high school kids? Rubin managed to revert right back to idiotic storytelling in just one panel

  2. Girls talking about what boys said again? OK.

  3. And remember to flick your wrists when you’re passing the beach ball, Phoebe, like we were taught in 5th-grade gym class.
