iOS 6 comes with gay and lesbian emoji

iOS 6 comes with gay and lesbian emoji
Emoji, the phenomenon of a picture expressing emotion (emoji is literally a combination of “e,” Japanese for picture and “moji” for emotion) took over the world from Japan, and with the goal of the pictograms being to animate our life, now they are becoming even more realistic as Apple adds a lesbian and gay couple along with the funny faces, the monkeys and the aliens.

The new set of emoji is available in iOS 6, but you can access the emoji keyboard now as well by hitting Settings -> General -> Keyboard and adding emoji.

After you’ve done this, the globe bar when you type will allow you to switch to the pictograms. There you’d also find the Sanzaru monkeys (aww, right?) and we leave it all up to you to decide how to use those!

Don't really see the point of it. All this stuff is seemingly exclusive for children. Maybe some drunk adults.

Hark, I hear the clattering of protest groups rallying their troops to storm Apple's gates.

On the sexuality thing, I personally am a sucker for a hot FEMALE blond babe... But otherwise I don't really care, whatever rocks your boat. On the other hand, if it results in the storming of Apple's gates maybe some good will come out of it after all.

These people have no respect for the rights of others to live the way they want as long as they don't hurt anyone, so why should I respect the fantasies they use as an excuse to act like assholes?

second that!

I agree with Sniggly... No reason to show respect for something that respects nothing but itself. On top of that its simply foolish.

That's adorable. Did he love all the babies he killed when he wrought down the plagues on the Pharoah? Did he love all the innocent people and animals he killed when he flooded the earth?

Just because two dudes and two girls are holding hands doesn't make it *** or lesbian. You won't find me holding hands with another dude but if it were really meant to be *** and lesbian expressions there would be two dudes and two girls trying to kiss each other with a heart in the middle like the 5th and 6th emoji.

This... is actually a good move. No qualifiers, no complaints. 1 up to Apple for recognizing the validity of the LGBT community. Oh, and it's cool knowing how many of the people I like on here are g.a.y. Rock on, guys and gals.

Sniggly i couldn't give two f**ks about what phone you carry your a good person. I am a *** person in fear of coming out because of assholes in today's society. If only more people where like you.

I knew you took it up the butt. You are a homosexual. Accept God and be cured.

You know we dont have the right to control other people but g.a.ys and lesbians shouldnt be encouraged, its wrong. Naturally guys and girls are supposed to be together, not guy-guy or girl-girl. So what if animals are showing signs of homosexuality? And so what if our DNA resembles to that of apes? Your still human, act like one! Yeesh...
