EA Removing Gender Boundaries From The Sims 4
EA and Maxis are erasing some gender boundaries from the Sims 4. Sims games restricted some clothes, hairstyles, and other options to male or female characters.
The Associated Press reports, Maxis is releasing a Sims 4 update that will remove gender boundaries from character creation. Regardless of gender, Sims will be able to have any physique, voice, and attire. On top of that, players can now change Sims’ genders whenever they want, and they can designate which Sims are capable of reproducing.
The Sims series has allowed for same-sex romances since the original, but trans, non-binary, and other gender identifications of players’ choosing are new territory. This is a big step.
