I guess I've never had an trouble identifying with sims who don't look like me, so I'm really not sure why this is being presented as an "either or." I think of all the sims I've played, the sims I've made the strongest personal connection with were actually Ophelia Nigmos and Johnny Smith, neither of whom looks even remotely like me.

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!

All Sims are beautiful -- even the ugly ones.

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.
