It's pretty rare when a life-affirming, heart warming story sneaks its way out of a major American retail chain. Especially GameStop
. But this story from blogger and GameStop shift manager Kristen Wolfe
might very well put a warm feeling in the deepest, darkest cockles of your heart. It's about a young boy who wants to buy games with female protagonists, and a "girl color" controller. His father will hear nothing of it, threatening to "whoop" the boy if he doesn't choose something manlier -- then the young boy's older brother steps in.
