If you've been frustrated because there's not a sloth emoji, the Unicode Consortium has come to your rescue. "And it's time for interracial couples to be represented in our universal language".
"An emoji isn't going to solve this, but it can help change the conversation. We are represented in the most personal part of our lives". The company acknowledged that the additions do not reflect the whole range of experiences of those with disabilities, but said they offer "an initial starting point for greater representation for diversity within the emoji universe". One person, commenting on Plan International's tweet about the news, described the new emoji as "stunning and brave".
These reflect the diversity in our society, including men and women in wheelchairs, people who are deaf, and people who are blind. "But I think a lot of us, we love our dogs and we love to show off our dogs".
