Emojis Diversify, Not Just For Straight White People With White Dogs

Emojis are slightly less bigoted, thanks to a woman on a mission to diversify the increasingly popular and super annoying emoticons.

A frustrated Internet has complained that current emojis don’t cut it unless you’re white, straight and own a brown or white dog, The Daily Dot reports, so Katrina Parrot has created iDiversions. The app offers more than 900 emoticons, including same sex couples, an array of dog breeds, interracial couples and people with skin tones other than white.

“We wanted all people to be able to find an emoticon that looked like them,” Parrot said, according to The Daily Dot.

The emoticons can’t be added to your phone’s keyboard yet, but they can be sent in texts and emails and used with social media.
