The Sims 4 Adding Sexual Orientation

EA announces plans to update the Create a Sim process in The Sims 4 with a new Sexual Orientation feature. The post discusses the upcoming change, saying, "Between this update and the recent pronouns update, we’re taking several strides forward into being a game that respects and celebrates the nuance and color of everyday life." Word is: "we are committed to continuing to improve our representation of the LGBTQIA+ community." On a related note, GamesRadar+ reports on indications that World of Warcraft Dragonflight is "un-gendering" character creation. This is based on datamined information, and has not been announced. Back to the update for The Sims 4, it includes details on efforts to get this right:
Authenticity is a point that often comes up in regards to features like this, and rightly so. As such I’ll try to peel the curtain back a bit and speak to our efforts in making sure we got this right. Many members of the team, myself included, are part of the LGBTQIA+ community. That said, each one of us on the team represents only a narrow slice of lived experiences. As such we’ve worked extensively with GLAAD and the It Gets Better Project to ensure that we’ve captured the widest possible range of viewpoints on how to approach this feature in a manner that respects and elevates the community.
