Here’s a midweek Pop Culture Fix for you, friends!
+ Okay this is awesome: The Sims 4 has added some new trans-inclusive updates, including binders, top surgery scars, and more. Plus! “There are also medical wearables, such as glucose monitors and hearing aids, which makes The Sims 4 all more inclusive for the disability community as well.” This is a HUGE deal, and right on time. Trans gamers need a damn break!
A base game update is here with new content including medical wearables, binders, shapewear, a light switch & more including bug fixes & console gameplay improvements 🥳💚
