I’M SUPER MAD THAT E.A. LOCKED A CIVILIZED DISCUSSION THREAD ABOUT DISABITLIES.

Something had a thread “Disabled and Illness–All Sims are Equal” thread

this was the OP’s oringal post:

Okay, first of all, this isn’t some big moan at TS3 or anything. I adore Sims, and am ridiculously thankful to EA for making such a fantastic game.

In Sims, it is a wonderful world where everyone is equal and undiscriminated – no matter what their weight, gender, race, sexuality, age or income. So why can’t we have disabled Sims?

I can understand to make, this would be a logistical nightmare. And it’s not like it could be an expansion pack – what would they call it? But in TS4 (if it does come out, which I sincerely hope/expect it will) I think it would be awesome if it could happen. I’m thinking paralyzed, deaf, blind and more? Hey, I’m not disabled myself, so maybe it’s a bad idea, but I think it’d be cool.

So, this brings me onto my second point! So, we all know that Sims get sick when pregnant, after eating nasty food, or if they are veggie and eat meat. But…come on! Is this realistic? What about flu(I may be making this up, but couldn’t Sims get this on TS2 Seasons?), chicken pox, stomach bugs, infections and more! Maybe more serious, even fatal, sicknesses as well?

Why don’t we combine my two points and raise the ideas of broken bones? Temporary casts/crutches, etc?

 

 

and it was a very cilvized discussion and it got locked/deleted and I don’t think that’s right.  There was no offensive content in the thread at all. I point out stuff like: gays,overweight and “pagan” items (ie. vamps) are contversy  to some people and yet we still have them in the game. I did asked potitley if anyone had a cow over the illness from sims 2 and the answer was “NO”.  Where maybe the only thing inappropriate could have been the cancer/abortion/miscarriage items (except I don’t see the OP mentioning any of the three in her thread..so have no idea where other sims got that idea from).
