Apple Wants to Launch 13 New Emojis

Apple is unveiling new emojis:


Somehow it doesn't seem like rocket science that there are now, but have never been, emojis that represent the largest invisible minority in the world. Emojis have become ubiquitous - we are all relying on them so much more than words. And yet this is a first - welcome though it may be.

It makes the world more inclusive - and who doesn't want to be included? With the absence of text and the reliance on pictures, we are getting further and further away from anything but representational conversation.... a picture IS apparently worth a thousand words!
