Google Emoji Boss Jennifer Daniel:

“Gender is not a haircut but at emoji size that seems to be a primary signifier to communicate what may be an impossible task as it relates to this construct. Gender lives dynamically on a spectrum and there is no single visual design “solution”.

  1. Why are all the middle ones orange? And why are they all Victoria Beckham? I mean, I’d google the answers, but….

  2. Hello, this is totally off topic but I thought you were gone forever and I’m very happy to see you back.

  3. So, is google saying that EVERYONE is trans? did google just misgender me or am I trans and don’t know it yet? (/s)

    also- Gallus- FUCK YEAH! YOU’RE BACK!!

  4. That is also the international gesture of grumpy toddlers!

    I’m just surprised they didn’t go with hands air-drawing an exaggerated hourglass figure?

  5. What? Now Google is saying all trans are ramp/aircraft marshalers?

    On another not–so GREAT TO SEE YOU BACK!! When I heard, I posted info on my FB page. Can’t keep a good bouncer down, eh? Whoop!!

  6. “Wakanda forever!”

    In any case, welcome back! During your absence I tried to keep up with GT-type topics using other sources, but it was tough. Your work is greatly appreciated.
