Hells Yeah News

True facts:
1. I am a lady
2. I like teh sports
3. I like teh sports video games

I'm a particularly big fan of hockey, because I grew up in Minnesota and hockey is part of my religion. :cough:

Stop me if you've heard this one before, but sometimes the people who design video games (always) forget that I exist. So, if you're playing EA's hockey game, you can create an avatar, provided that avatar represents a dude.

Lexi Peters, a 14-year-old girl from Upstate, was all like 'What the fuck, yo?' So, she wrote to EA.

In a show of savvy public relations, EA decided to add an option for a female avatar, using Peters' likeness as the model. Score.
