Mainstream kids video game adds option for child characters to have 'top surgery' scars and chest bindersFollow @KnightsTempOrg
A popular video game series which has an age rating of 12 has been slammed by critics after a recent update allowed for 'top surgery' scars that come from breast removal and chest binders to be added to characters.
The Sims 4 developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts (EA) is a game that describes itself as the 'ultimate life simulation' and announced the update among several bug fixes on Tuesday.
The announcement will not come as a shock to those who understand the extreme push of the LGBTQ+ agenda, that a game marketed to children would allow the promotion of transgender surgeries.
The new update has the option to make a teen character non-binary or transgender by giving them double mastectomy scars and chest binders.
The Sims is advertised for ages 12+ and so the devopers are telling young healthy girls that it's ok to chop off their breasts - pure evil.
The number of gender reassignment surgeries being carried out on American children has increased in the last decade, a study suggests.
Researchers looked at the number of mastectomies, sometimes called 'top surgery,' performed on girls under 18 at a major health system in California since 2013.
Results showed children as young as 12 were offered irreversible operations between 2013 and 2020. The overall incidence of mastectomies among minors rose from 3.7 per 100,000 persons-years to 47.7 per 100,000 in that time.
Xbox supported the changes for a more inclusive game and said alongside a heart emoji: 'Vadish, we love it!'
'Vadish' also means 'thank you' in 'Simlish,' the made-up language that 'Sims' characters use to communicate.
EA announced the changes among several bug fixes on Tuesday and explained to gamers how they could access the option.
Under the headline Top Surgery, they wrote: 'Under the same Body category, all players can find a Body Scars category with an option for Teen and older male Sims (masculine or feminine frame) to add a Top Surgery Scar to their Sims.'
Under the headline Binders and Shapewear, they wrote: 'With this update, players can find two new assets in Create a Sim. Under the Tanks, in the Tops category, you will find a Binder top asset for your Teen and older Sims. In the Underwear category for Bottoms, there is a new shapewear asset for your Sims as well!'
The updates come just months after the popular video game allowed for, they/them pronounce in May 2022.
