Of Wolverine and Princess Syndrome

Watched Wolverine with Kain Club in Eastwood Citywalk 2 Cinemas last Saturday. I'm not really a Marvel fan so I probably wouldn't watch the film if not for friendship. HAHA. Worth the long cab ride back and forth Eastwood though.

Towards the end, however, amidst the good quality of cinematography, I couldn't help but feel that it's just another awkward-guy-turned-awesome when he found a new meaning of life in saving a helpless princess with a pretty face. Ugh. Haven't we reached the age of gender equality yet? Why do us girls have to be consistently saved from the monsters created by the same brilliant minds who conjured heroism and every other honorable thing that came along with it? Why do boys always end up doing the saving--being brave and valiant, not to mention overly-glorified? Why can't women be portrayed as human beings who maybe as vulnerable but can manage to fight and win their own battles--because I tell you, we fight hard and we fight to win!

And then men wonder why most girls have the so called 'princess syndrome'? Ridiculous.
