    What if along with this system – Paras who haven’t been created in the Paramaker will grow up, and during puberty, you will be able to choose their sexuality with this UI and after that it becomes permanent for life (unless you use cheats). It might sound controversial as sexuality is not a choice, but I don’t think it would be an issue since the player is the one choosing and is essentially playing God.

    What do you guys think? How would Paras get their sexuality when they haven’t been created in the Paramaker?

      (Those who don’t want to choose for specific storytelling can press the randomize dice icon)

      I think if we’re going to choose the sexuality of individuals that were born not made, we should choose at birth, with the option to click randomise and opt not to be told. This caters to players who want a coming out mechanic that shows signs in childhood (there’s a thread for that somewhere), and people who want to be surprised. I think that’s less problematic than choosing at puberty because the para was born that way, even if it is kind of weird to assign an orientation to a baby. Do you think that’s better or worse?

      Yeah that’s a good idea!

    To people who find the system too complex and think we only really need binary sexualities without fluidity or none at all, have you thought about how think could benefit you as well? If you only play with heterosexual paras you can give them a difference in sexual interest, for example, since all heterosexual people don’t have the same sex drive or need for a romantic bond, thus adding some spice to the gameplay. This wouldn’t just benefit us who want intense LGBTQ+ representation in the game, it would benefit everybody!
