As you can see in the screenshot my main species , who are already cyborgs, now have Full Citizenship with Transub Synthesis Living Standards. What happened is that I tried switching their living standards from Stratified Economy to Academic Privilege and got Synthesis instead. It's not just a display bug, the pops really do get the Synthesis penalty as you can see for yourself in the attached save.

I expect this thread will not get any answers, just like the one I previously reported a cyborg namelist bug, but I'm hopeful someone is actually seeing them and they'll get fixed after summer.

The only mod I'm running is Kaityo's Tiny Outliner.

edit: I was able to bypass the issue by setting my default rights to Academic Privilege and genetically modifying the species. The new subspecies had the correct rights.
