Apparently People Instagramming Their Sims Is A Thing Now

Have tweens finally gone too far? There's an emerging subculture where people not only roleplay using Sims 3 University, but also Instagram their-Sim-selves doing it.

It's easy to categorize the people behind these account as crazies—and sure, this subculture is out there, both literally and figuratively—but think about it. Who HASN'T made Sims that in one way or another reflect our own lives or ideal versions of ourselves? Sure, we might eventually trap them in a 1x1 square and then light them on fire, but that's just human nature. We're all a bit crazy. It's just that most of us haven't chosen to Instagram our Sims. Yet.
