In a significant (and free) update to their wildly popular The Sims game, Electronic Arts has added several gender customizing options. Before today’s update, players would create a Sim and have just two genders to choose from, but now users can pick from more variable body shapes and all hairstyles and clothing are available to all genders. Now, a Sim’s gender can also be modified during the game. Electronic Arts reached out to GLAAD when working on the update and Nick Adams (of GLAAD’s Transgender Media Program) says the game now “more accurately reflects the world in which we live today.”
