Dad hacks Donkey Kong so his daughter can be the hero; this guy deserves the high score in parenting

Mike Mika programmed an old copy of Donkey Kong to swap the Mario/Jumpman and Pauline models so that his daughter could have a female avatar as the hero. Why? Because he's a good dad. No politics, no gender message to send, no special reason other than to make his child happy. YouTube commenters promptly wished she would die. Come, and see how when a father did something nice for his daughter, the Internet took a shit on it.
