Parents Outraged Over What Appears On A ‘Kids’ Video Game


The popular game “The Sims” has parents furious.

Recently, game developer Electronic Arts announced a new game update that allows the player to make a teen character that is non-binary or transgender by giving them double mastectomy scars and chest binders.

The game targets kids as young as 12.

From Fox News:

A video game series that is marketed to children is coming under attack for its recent update allowing characters to have double mastectomy scars and chest binders.

“The Sims 4,” which calls itself “the ultimate life simulation game” on its website, announced Tuesday that it would allow players to give characters “top scars” that come from breast removal surgery.

The announcement drew a swift backlash online, with many gamers and parents expressing horror that a game, especially one that is marketed to children, would promote transgender surgeries.

Parents are furious.

Parents are having their children uninstall the game.

“My daughter loves this game. I’ll not get this update or remove the game altogether,” a mother wrote.

Another mother said, “I cancel this. The Sims are now canceled. I’m sick of this. Leave children alone. They are perfect as they are, they don’t need to be changed.”

Gamers are even upset, they feel like this was a bridge that shouldn’t have been crossed.
