I know, given my age and stature, that I would not be comfortable expressing this side of myself in the real world - but here Microsoft was, encouraging me to express myself via its Avatars, and the revamp means there will be more ways than ever before to do so.

In addition to gender-neutral clothing, users can create pregnant avatars or customize avatars with prosthetic limbs or in wheelchairs.
Before the update, Xbox Live Avatar users were only able to choose clothing based on male or female options.
