I’m in the process of developing a game with a couple of other people and would like to know how to talk about sex (organs) and gender appropriately. I identify as a pansexual woman, so I’ve never become very accustomed to talking about gender identity.
In-game, right now it’s expressed as: “What is your sex?” (this is for baby-making purposes) and then it’s followed by “What gender do you identify with?”
Is this acceptable? Should I write it a different way? I need to know the player’s sexual organs…for lack of a better term…in order to know who gets pregnant if they try to have a baby. But I also want to add gender identity (as well as sexual orientation) to give the option of identifying other than what sex the player was born as.
