If you push politics into games, people will, at best, simply play other games.
OP is talking about extra options that you can choose if you want, or not if you don't. I don't think anyone is pushing every game to be Tell Me Why. (Nice game tho, although a bit too Dontnod's cookie cutter recipe -- social drama and for some inexplicable reason some supernatural elements. But I want to go to Alaska for the scenery now.)
In Cyberpunk 2077 you can have a female body with any breast size you choose, male genitalia and a male voice if you like. That doesn't stop you from choosing a male body, male genitalia and male voice. More options bring more choices, not limitations.
I would probably not pick a non-binary option myself, but I am with OP on this one. More options, more choices are good. "We want more" is good for the games. It is a different matter when people say "you can't have this in games". Yes you can, that's why games exist. I am always pro-more stuff in games and anti-this should not be in games. You, unfortunately want fewer options in games, so in my opinion you are wrong.
