    Default laser beams of logic and cold, hard jabs of truth

    "Of course, Supergirl was the angry side. Geez, was shewild with fury.
    If Levi is going to be like this, then he can just stick it. Be strong. Be independent, Jade.

    Imagined passing Levi in the corridor and letting Supergirl fly at him – laser beams of logic and cold, hard jabs of truth. This all happened because you’re just plain sexist. You don’t need to be ashamed, for crying out loud!"


    could you explain me please this sentence in red?


    and "for crying out loud" means "for crying out loud" or "Christ's sake" ?

    The writer is using the metaphorical image of cutting to indicate the pain of criticisms. Laser beams are used in surgery, to cut, and they are extremely precise. Jabs also refers to stabs with a knife.

    So, it means "painfully accurate comments."
