Something I'm really tired of hearing is how a pet site and a SIM site are different. Yeah, maybe one is more realistic than the other, but they still follow the same concept - a browser based game with a community, artwork, coding, writing, etc. Just presented with different ideas. Why do people feel like SIMs are different than pet sites? (information from http://prosimunion.org/topic/3545303/1/) I can name legitimate SIMS that are like that! I've still been on pet sites AND SIMs that incorporate both ideas. I still don't even see how that's true, either. You can use a SIM game and incorporate apparent 'pet site' traits. Could someone here explain to me in a logical answer particularly how they're different? Because it outrages me to hear this ignorance. As I told @cpvr today, calling a SIM game different from a pet site is like saying a person's skin color makes them less of a person. I would really love to see more people on both sides of the spectrum accept these sites more cumulatively. But until then, we need to face why we segregate the two.
