    I don't blame them. There's too many subtleties to satisfy with such a large and diverse community that we have here.

    We removed it, as we do not think it is of anyone's interest as everyone is the same :)

    Maybe we should add skin color. Instead of presets though, it should be a hsl selector.

    Damn, there goes my key argument in all gender disputes, "There are only 2 genders since BeamNG Drive website says so".

    I always prayed to God to remove all crappy, fallacious arguments.

    I guess he really exists.

    because in our modern society, "gender" isnt a technical/anatomical term to objectively separate male from female people anymore...
    its now a term to identify oneself through a subjective self-interpretation... simply put: its not about how things are, its about how you feel about them.
    and since (according to that logic), people can identify as unicorns now, objective terms like gender become discriminating.

    same reason we dont have negative ratings here... someone could rate something negative :eek:
