A new update to the popular “Sims” video game, where the player controls communities of simulated characters, now features transgender characters replete with chest binders and scars from having their breasts surgically removed.
The Update was recently announced by EA Games:

The game, which is aimed at children from age 12, also enables players to place ‘packing’ or ‘tucking’ underwear’ on their sims, garments that give or hide the appearance of male genitalia.
Rebel News editor Ian Miles Cheong notes:
The “Create a Sim” character creator now has a “Top Surgery Scar” subcategory, which can be added to male Sims characters aged Teen or older. Furthermore, chest binders can be found under the “Tanks” subcategory in the “Tops” section, while “tucking underwear” can be situated under “Bottoms” in the “underwear” subcategory.
In a statement, “The Sims 4” producer John Faciane called the update “a step in the direction of a more inclusive experience for Simmers.”
It’s just a simulation though right?
