First of all, it is a game, have fun with it smile

And both, the girl and the boy is "driving like daddy" and "cooking like mommy" wink In the game itself, no one drives a car, but mother and father prepare meals. Any work in the House is not set to a gender.

Yeah basically. If a simple stereotype in a game destroys your confidence to do something, or teaches your kid that boys drive and girls cook, then 1. You won't go far anyway and 2. You're clearly doing something wrong with your kids

I like it. I'm trying to teach my kids not to be perpetually offended by everything, especially a casual game, so I consider it a valuable teaching tool.
If the developers start trying to cater to every vocal minority they'll never put out another good game. It's the kiss of death. Once you start focusing on making everyone happy, you cease to be able to make anyone happy.

I am very into equal rights and all that, but let's be honest, kids copy what they see, whether it be a "gendered" thing or not. A boy will connect with what he sees another boy, his father, does. A girl will connect with what she sees another girl, her mother, does. Or vice versa. Can it be mixed up and the boy cooks like mommy or the girl drives like daddy? Yes. It'd be great if they changed it, since it seems to just be a bit of dialogue, but just seems a bit insignificant. Beyond noticing it the first time or two and thinking it was cute and interesting, it never crossed my mind again. Who knows what we will see in the new game, though?

LadyCFII gave us a nice update a few weeks ago in another post http://www.ldwforums.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=241201#Post241201

She didn't give any hints about when the game would be ready, but there was still some good news there.
