The New Pregnant Man Emoji

After talking in class about the evolution of the Instagram logo through time and how its evolution reflects our culture’s changing use of the platform, I was interested in how other icons that we use every day have evolved. I found this very interesting article about how there is a new pregnant man emoji that will come out in late 2021 or 2022, as part of Unicode’s goal to be more gender-inclusive. This reminded me of how emojis have progressed over the years to be more inclusive of different races and ethnicities as well, and how icons change with culture.
