A Look into one of the most important Updates in The Sims Franchise!

The Sims has always been known for its ways of allowing people to be themselves and create characters without boundaries. Boundaries of love, passion and gender.

In fact, The Sims has been considered to be “Bisexual” since The Sims 1. The game allowed players to love characters of both same sex and different sex. The legacy continued in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, and The Sims 4. Until 2016 when The Sims Team released the CAS Gender Preferences Update.

This has allowed players to Customize their Gender through Masculine and Feminine Frames and Fashion Preference, as well as Toilet Options.

After this, The Sims 4 has always been considered to be Pansexual by Default. The Sims 4 also in May received an important addition of Pronouns, which will be further released for other languages in the near future.

The Latest Update is finally stopping the streak of Gay Propaganda and pandering to Rainbow Capitalism. Well, actually next week when The Sims 4 Base Game Update comes out.

Next week is when you’ll finally be able to create – STRAIGHT PEOPLE in The Sims!

That’s right – Straight People are finally getting the much deserved representation that has been undertaken by the constant Gay Propaganda that The Sims Team has been throwing out left and right. We want Cars, Spiral Stairs and Flying Dragons first. Who cares about representation and useful features for everyone, right? 🙄

Nontheless, let’s see what’s new with the Sexual Orientation Update.

Trigger warning: homosexuality.*

What’s New with Sexual Orientation

The new features in The Sims 4 Create A Sim allow for players to choose the pre-determined Sexuality of the characters they create.

The Genders Section of Create A Sim now has More Details, which seperates the categories now to Gender and Sexual Orientation.
