Sims being given wrong pronouns in new pop ups

★★★★★ Apprentice

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? May 27th Update
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Not relevant
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Trigger a like or dislike (ie set a sim to dislike a certain music and then play it)
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims will be given the wrong pronouns in the pop up
What do you expect to see? Female sims referred to as "she", male sims referred to as "he"
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made.

The latest patch added a ton of new pop ups which are great, however the text in the pop ups gives sims the wrong pronouns. Sims will be addressed as they, their, etc even if they are labelled in CAS as male or female. Obviously if a sim is male, they should be labelled as he, or if a sim is female they should be labelled as she.

 

Take this example, Eliza Pancakes, an iconic female sim, is labelled as being in "their element" when it should say she's in her element because she's a female sim and should have female pronouns. Same happens for Bob Pancakes and other male sims as well, he'll receive the same pop ups saying "their element" rather than a pop up saying he's in his element which is what it should say.

I'd like for this to be fixed so sims are addressed by their correct pronouns rather than the wrong pronouns which are given here presumably in error

Hey there, I did a fix in the text database for this, sorry about that. 
It should be released in a future update.
Thank you!

New update for Sims 4 is using wrong pronouns for Sims.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Activate a like or dislike on your selected Sim.

Please describe the patch or change you made. The update added likes and dislikes that could be chosen. The text is giving wrong pronouns to Sims. My male Sim Aziz gets a text to say ‘Aziz in thier element.’ It should read Aziz is in his element. When I played my Sim Alice, it read ‘Alice is thier element’ and it should be Alice is in her element.

Since new update and addition of likes & dislikes, texts reporting the outcome of a like or dislike are using incorrect pronouns for the Sim. Male and female Sims are having they and their instead of correct designation. At present in CAS you can only make male or female Sims so seeing ‘they’ and ‘their’ is odd. 
Thank you for adding likes and dislikes, it’s great!

I'm seeing my male Sim being referred to as "her" when his odd jobs rating increases.

@elelunicy Would you mind making a new thread for that. Best with a screenshot, specific to odd jobs.

Thanks
