        How Do We and The Sims Perform Gender? | PBS Idea Channel

        The Sims have always allowed for characters to choose their sexual orientation, but what about their gender? Why is it that after all these years it's still not possible to choose an option other than guy or girl, male or female? And is gender something we are, or perform? Judith Butler would say no. But why? Find out in this week's episode that's part of a wider collaboration featuring lots of great Youtubers talking about gender! And then, tell us what you think!
