    • I started reading that post and was like WTF!!! these guys have some issues. Just like their other side…let it go.

      • Dude, it’s a parody site… a quick check reveals other articles such as

        “Gabe Newell Confirms Half-Life 3 is No Longer a Game, Now a Movie Directed by J. J. Abrams”
        “EA Hires Hundreds of Chinese Spammers to Post Positively About SimCity’s Always Online Requirement”

  • Wait, that wasn’t Princess Peach in Donkey Kong? Man, they should re-introduce Pauline in future Mario games, as the crazy ex-girlfriend haha.

  • Nothing says “cool dad” like raising his daughter to expect the world to reconfigure itself according to her wants and needs. Of course feminism already does that to girls, but he shouldn’t be speeding up the process, he should be resisting it.

  • It’s cool to see fathers getting their daughters into gaming and raising the next generation of hackers, crackers, jailbreakers and modders (j/k). It’s interesting though, that while the father put Pauline in as the heroine rescuing Mario in order to subvert the “Damsel in Distress” trope, he still perpetuated the stereotype that girls love pink things and fashion accessories.
