[taps mic] hello everyone..... im a big fan of sims youtubers, especially ones who play longer legacies/families/challenges, and i wld LOVE some good recommendations :^)
ive kinda fallen out of love of a lot of the youtubers i watch bc they tend to play very samey cishet white traditional families w really generic aesthetics, so id especially love recs for simmers who post more diverse/refreshing content... ty in advance besties

I’m just... continually frustrated about this stubborn refusal to acknowledge that anyone grew up feeling like they weren’t like other girls for any reason other than internalized misogyny. Every post I see about this, there’s dozens of people in the notes like, “Actually I felt like I wasn’t like other girls because the other girls were telling me that as they were bullying me for being gay/autistic/trans.” And it’s just. Ignored.
There’s someone in the notes of the post I reblogged the other day talking about how growing out of the Not Like Other Girls mentality and supporting other women is a “universal coming of age experience” for women, despite being surrounded by other people in the notes saying, “it was never about not supporting other women for me.” For a lot of people, it’s not about feeling superior, it’s about feeling inferior. It’s about wanting desperately to be included by the other girls and not understanding why you’re not. Especially because at that age, a lot of queer and neurodivergent kids can’t put their finger on exactly what makes them different.
And you know what? If a girl does tell herself she’s superior to the girls who are bullying her to cope with being bullied and being repeatedly told, “you’re not like us,” she isn’t actually the problem! The girls who are doing that to her are the problem! Perhaps we should focus less on lecturing victims of childhood bullying at the hands of other girls for not responding to it the way we want them to and more on acknowledging that girls bullying other girls for not doing femininity right is like, a pretty pervasive problem that needs to be addressed. But that would require actually questioning the status quo.
Kula: Does Maxima ever sleep?
K': I think he periodically makes a whirring noise and then shuts down.
Maxima: *Enters in the room*
K': Not now Maxima, I'm in bad mood.
Maxima: I know! That's why I'm in here!
Maxima: *Begins flailing around in what he think is dancing, while it plays music from his body*
K': *Cracks a smile*
May I introduce you to my fictional partners? :D
