You guys might not be able to wrap your mind around this one, but as many times as we’ve probably heard this, if you’re a girl in a man’s world, finding female heros/leads/role models is Not That Easy. When I was growing up, the first strong woman character I was aware of was Nichelle Nichol’s Uhura, and even she was 1/2 eye candy in the mini-dress, 1/4 helpless female, and 1/4 strong female.  The first pseudo-hero(s) I can recall are Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, from the old Sid & Marty Krofft Supershow, which was a lot of camp, really. And the only reason I mention them INSTEAD of Linda Carter’s Wonder Woman is, well let’s be fair, WW was more eye candy than substance, amiright?

Today’s girls have a little more depth to choose from, except in gaming. “Oh, what about Laura Croft?” you say. Short shorts and a tank top? mmhm. Any female in a fantasy genre game? T&A fanservice, right there.

So here’s my shout-out to Father of the Year: When his 3-year-old was upset that the Princess couldn’t save Mario in Donkey Kong, he HACKED THAT SH**.

Mine just bought me & my sister cowboys and indians. And trains.

  1. Terrific write up. He’ll win father of the year and best father ever for this from his daughter. This is showing her he’ll always have her back and the hacking is just good techie awesomeness.

    I have two little girls and this would definitely be something they’d be all over.

  2. I know how it would be. Being a father of this generation stamped by the friends and family circle, I know the proud feeling. :D
