Do you think this comic passes the Bechdel Test?

I made this poll because while I was writing the comic I was with a friend and we got into a never ending discussion about whether the comic passed the test. It seemed to create more questions:

  1. If two women are discussing the patriarchy does that pass the Bechdel Test?
  2. Or what if they are discussing the politics of a man?

I suppose it comes down to what you want to establish by doing the test… I find the test more interesting(/devastating) when the answer to both the above questions is no. Anyway, we kept going round in circles with this phrase:

it’s not about a man, but it’s not not about a man either

…and sometimes it really feels like that sums up my life. More on that coming soon.
