Honestly, this is very helpful for making the character creation process SOOOO much quicker and easier. I don't believe you were trying to be homophobic, transphobic or anything alike, but included it for the fact that with character creation...their all different. Keep up the good work!

Lost complete interest with the transphobia

Sorry to hear you took that away from the game! Honestly, it's not intended to be transphobic, but instead a commentary on how games default to a male/female binary, without any willingness to embrace trans and non-binary representation.

But I can see how it could potentially be read in other ways! So thanks for your feedback!
