Rust now assigns gender randomly based on your Steam ID

Tied to your Steam ID

Steam Early Access survival game Rust is no stranger to controversy -- having made players' in-game penis size based on their Steam ID -- and it looks like there is about to be another one.

In the latest update, Rust has made gender assignment tied to your Steam ID, meaning players have no choice in the matter of whether they are male or female. Some vocal players are upset by this change, but everything about the player's character has always been randomly generated, perhaps to simulate being born into the real world.

Developer Garry Newman had previously said, "We're not 'taking the choice away' from you. You never had a choice. A man’s voice coming out of a woman’s body is no more weird than an 8-year-old boy's voice coming out of a man’s body." 

This update released besides a plethora of other changes which you can check out on the developer's blog.

We're not 'taking the choice away' from you. You never had a choice. A man’s voice coming out of a woman’s body is no more weird than an 8 year-old boy’s voice coming out of a man’s body."
