Russia brands Sims 4 18+ because of same-sex relationships

Putin the Sims in jail

Look, The Sims can get villainous. You play god and can deprive a simulated individual of basic necessities or trap them in a swimming pool or whatever. But Adults Only?

Due to a backwards 2012 law that restricts the promotion of same-sex relationships to minors, The Sims 4 has been branded 18+ because it has (and has always had) the option for same-sex relationships.

You suck, Russia. Please take all the Fox news pundits that idolize Putin and have them build ramshackle hotels for next time you host an international sporting event. And send pirozhki.
