In New Desconia they're all gay or bi. There was one straight Sim (Sebastian Reilly) but one of his girlfriends persuaded him that he'd have more fun if he did it with boys too, so now he's bi. By the way, they're all Romance too! I just kept quiet about it (until now) in case anyone complained!

I didn't mean it had to be either-or. Might as well be both, I just didn't write it. Also, identifying with a character doesn't have to be about how the character compares to you in looks. Could be you identify with their personality or their situation, or anything of the sort.

The adopted kids don't retain any memories (I wish they did), but the birth parents do. When I first started playing, poor Vidcund starved to death, leaving Pascal's daughter alone. After the social worker swooped, Jenny Smith adopted the little girl, and although Rachel had no memories of her father, Pascal kept phoning and asking if she was available to talk (even though Rachel was only a toddler and couldn't come to the phone!). Since he hadn't visited Jenny and met Rachel as his niece, he must have remembered her as his daughter.

I love the way "colour blind" adoption works in The Sims 2. When white teenager Alastair Gunn decided to adopt a child (using a Squinge mod), the Social Worker brought this delightful little black girl:



So, when a few weeks ago the (black) Social Worker had a white child (Alyssa) to be adopted, she gave her to a black gay couple. Now, when she had a little black girl needing a home, she gave her to an unmarried teenage white couple. Congratulations! That's the way to get real integration. Both adoptions are working out well, with the children loving and loved by their new parents. It's not often that the Sim Nation Social Work Department gets plaudits, but our nameless social worker deserves them. Her judgement is much better than the "culturally aware" approach we get in Real Life where I live! IMHO anyway!

The entire game is colour/looks blind. You can pair the ugliest sim you can make with the best looking one and sims don't see it. One of the things I like most.

I love that too. Here it is not that strange for white people to adopt black kids - my son-in-law's aunt adopted 4 of them.

I cannot count the number of ugly people I have met who gradually changed into butterflies as I got to know them better.

It's what I love about pets. They don't give a shit what you look like.

I remember when I first saw my RL cat I thought that she was the ugliest thing. Now she hasn't changed except filling out a bit, but I think she's beautiful because I know her. XD

You can use SimPE to make the adopted sim have memories of their old family, I did it once and it works 100/100
