        How are the gender neutral emojis more gender neutral than a regular smiley face? It has no hair, clothes, or distinguishing features.

                                      When was :) gendered to begin with? Look, I'm trans; but from the bottom of my heart, stop it. Equality will be reached when it's not an issue. Not when we all have pronouns. Not everything is gendered, just stop. If you hadn't told me that the blond curly haired one was supposed to be Gender neutral, I never would have known it, and they're supposed to be pandering to me. It's like having Black, and Asian emogis, when they weren't white to begin with. What's the point? We need rights, not empty diversity.

                                                  ... Why? I don't even... Its flippin emojis. I don't really care what you identify as and I don't find it to be a big deal. But making more emojis that might be used once every full moon just seem like a waste of time. Unless you're the kind of person that spam them. In that case... Please stop. We have words for a reason.

                                                                  I wrote this as a reply to an obscure comment, but I think it's a p good explanation:

                                                                  Gender neutral refers to portraying a person with no gender coded characteristics. Like a fish that doesn’t know it’s in water most people take for granted the fact that, culturally, we expect people (speaking in terms relative to traditional western culture) to wear certain clothes, have different hobbies and even act in certain ways, mostly, according to sex markers (male/female which are umbrella term for anatomical characteristics. Not to be confused with gender which I am currently defining).

                                                                  Gender is cultural and we know this because in different societies different genders have different expectations that may even contradict one another. For instance while pink is a strictly feminine marker in western countries it is considered a masculine symbol in India. THAT is gender. (Theoretically, it exists and is as important to society in the same way that the concept of money and the days of the week are. Saying someone's gender is fake is that same as saying Tuesday is fake).

                                                                  Therefore, gender neutral is the portrayal of a person free of cultural markers of any specific gendered traits. (By this point you should be able to think of examples of what these might be: Long hair vs short hair. Suit vs a dress. Speaking in a calm cheery voice vs speaking in a loud commanding voice.) As an extra note: sex and gender CAN be related and at the same it also may not be depending on the individual. So this is not a reason to invalidate any trans people or gender non-conforming person (please google history of third genders in your free time also). I hope that helps!

                                                                  • shazmahtaz

They can start by stop making degradation labels, policies, and languages that encourages division. Prevention is better than the cure. Societal issues only becomes an issue when it’s personally relatable to that particular party or to a particular person within that party. Hold the hypocrisy, the treason was enough. What absurd pacification!
