The Missing Emojis

Today is World Emoji Day, and although I hate to admit it, I like using emojis…A LOT.

I just feel like I don’t need to always type “yeah.” It’s lame and unoriginal, so instead I use the classic ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ or if it’s a “yaaaaasssss”, I’ll drop in a few ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพto express my enthusiasm. While I totally understand that they can become super annoying ๐Ÿ˜ƒ, inadvertently creepy ๐Ÿ†and comically graphic ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿคฎ, they also create a space for empowerment ๐Ÿ‘and help us to really get the point across ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿพ. But still, a few are missing.

First, I NEED the diamond y’all. Who doesn’t love Jay-Z? I need DIAMOND HANDS! This would be great for any business convos, friendship hype sessions or conversations about the Illuminati.

Second, as I was texting a friend about the upcoming remake of The Lion King, I realized, to my GREAT dismay, that there is no full-body emoji of a lion. The lion is the muthaf*ckn’ ๐Ÿ‘‘ OF THE JUNGLE ๐ŸŒด. He deserves to have a full body. Why can we only get his sweetheart lion face? ๐Ÿฆ NOT. CUTTING. IT.

Next, I was stoked on the skin color update a few years ago but there are still a few #woke emojis that are missing. I need an interracial couple emoji, PUH-LEASE. There was nothing for me to text to friends when I got engaged and married. I tried coloring the skin in on my own but it was so far out of the lines that it looked like we were breaking up. Woof.

I also need inter-hair color-relationship options. According to this article, only 2 percent of people in THE WORLD are natural blonds. So, barely anyone needs these ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐ŸŽ…! Where is my bi-racial, green-eyed, blondish-brownish curly-haired girl?!!!!!

I know that, in reality, emojis are tiny cartoon icons that really shouldn’t impact anyone’s life but it’s nice to feel represented in the trends of today’s society.
