Please Anita Sarkeesian. For heaven's sake, for once cut out this stupid feminist bullshit. What came be more feminist than having the Wolverine character as female after so many years of Hugh Jackman making that role purely his. Just, enjoy a movie without trying to derive political mileage or some biased meaning behind it all.

The gunfighter reference is purely a sexless reference. It is more about conveying loss.

On one end, you want to go on about an mindless and reasonless feminist tone to the entire article and then want to convey that it is wrong to show a woman or in this case, a small girl in a role that has to be grisly in violence. No woman, for anyone to be this grisly in violence is a no-no. The mental backlash should be far too much, forget the male or female side of things.

"People of color are introduced just to die". It disagree with this line. Rather I see this in the complete opposite way. Here I see Logan fighting for these colored people, pardon me but I am using the words used in this article. Isn't this being politically correct? I don't understand what you are trying to convey here.

Lastly, i wonder how you came to this conclusion, "how toxic masculinity and violence destroyed this man". No violence did not destroy this man. It was the adamantium poisoning as has been depicted in this movie. His violence has never been for nefarious purposes. For self preservation, for protecting others and things in between, but not mindless violence from which he derives happiness.

Remove those patently feminist glasses and enjoy the movie.

P.S. - One thing that I would thank you for is making me write an impassioned blog about this article. Haven't done so for quite some time. Enjoyed this vent.

To watch one of the greatest players in the history of tennis is a pleasure. To be born in the same age is a blessing.

To watch him play against players like Sampras, Agassi, Hewitt, Haas, all members of the old school and still going toe to toe with the best of the current crop like Djokovic, Nadal, Raonic, Murray, there are no words to describe it.

For me, his backhand, the single handed backhand, will always remain his most potent weapon in his arsenal. Almost every other player uses a double handed backhand, giving them more power and control. Yet Federer's backhand with the single handed control is a wonder. The time you see him flick a backhand while back pedalling for an out of reach return, graciously curving it inside the line, all while holding the racket in a single vice grip is control at its finest.

On every Father's day, I always wish that my Dad could spend more time with my daughter +Nupur Parab​. It was a loss for you Nupur. But these are few of those priceless moments for you to remember.

Oh bother. Google's ATAP made this no longer truly customizable. Gone is the vision that every single component would be replaceable. A base plate with fixed CPU, GPU, antennas, sensors, battery and display, no, no, no. Make it truly customizable.
