The Sims 4 introduces first non-binary character with Island Living
The Sims 4 has debuted its first stock character who is gender non-confirming as part of its new ‘Island Living’ expansion pack.
It is revealed that Hadid's visa application was turned down after she offended many by squinting her eyes in an attempt to impersonate the Buddha in February.
YouTuber Lilsimsie shared a glimpse at the character’s ‘Create a Sim’ settings, which show Lia to have a “masculine” physical frame and a “feminine” clothing preference. The settings also state that Lia is able to become pregnant.
“In a game that’s supposed to be about representing people, it is so cool to see people represented. The Sims, one of the biggest franchises ever, just put an actual transgender Sim into their game… and she’s beautiful,” Lilsimsie said.
The Sims 4 loosens gender binary
The Sims players have been able to create custom characters outside of the gender binary since 2016, though the game hadn’t featured a gender non-conforming stock character until now.
