So let me get this straight… one emoji is being put in to raise acceptance while the other is being put in to make fun of males. Very interesting.
Only in 2019 can be get excited about emojis.
Some people on social media are talking about this period emoji as if it is going to change the world.
“The inclusion of an emoji which can express what 800 million women around the world are experiencing every month is a huge step towards normalizing periods and smashing the stigma which surrounds them,” said Lucy Russell, head of girls rights and youth at Plan International UK.
But hey whatever… if people want to get happy over an emoji then to each their own.
