Emojis.

Emojis are fun. You can create stories with emojis. You can also use less characters to text.

On the other hand, emojis are sexist. some emojis only occur in a male form and others occur in a female form. For a society that professes being “progressive”, a lot of emojis are not as inclusive as they are sold to be. I do applaud the progress of doing racially inclusive emojis and sexuality inclusive emojis because it allows for more opportunities of expression. Yet there is a lot of work to do in emojiland for emojis to be able to represent the fullness of offline reality.
