[BY DESIGN] [IL] Mermaid won't admit to being mermaid

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play with mermaid and use "ask if mermaid" interaction.
What happens when the bug occurs? Not sure if this is a bug or just not fully fleshed out feature, but my mermaid refuses to admit she is a mermaid. She was swimming in the water with a mermaid tail and the sim she's dating asked if she was a mermaid, and she denied it. Do mermaids just always deny being mermaids?
What do you expect to see? I'd think it would make sense for the mermaid to fess up when asked if she's a mermaid, especially if the sim asking has a high relationship. Also, it's weird no one acknowledges her being a mermaid. Like she swims around with a tail and no one blinks.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

A Merfolk with high friendship or romance rel will tell a Sim if they are a merfolk. Otherwise, they deny it. This is the intended design.

You said they were dating, so I assume their romance bar was high, but how high was the friendship bar?

I asked a sim if she was a mermaid once we were "good friends" and she immediately confirmed, while at another time I asked a near stranger while swimming next to her and she denied it (which I personally found funny). So I think it's definitely linked to how high your relationship is. Maybe you need to be good friends? It might also depend on the mermaid's mood.

@crinrictitsssarah11 for me i have to use the conch shell near them and after they come up to me "ask about strange reaction" and then they admit to being mermaids.

I have had a mermaid NPC admit she was a mermaid after my sim became best friends with her (full friendship bar). You need to have a really high level relationship for them to admit they are mermaids. So far on my end it doesn't seem to be a bug at all.
