Millennial confession: I am not emoji literate. I have the emoji prowess of a 107-year-old woman, and anytime I have sent one, it was by accident over Gchat. But that ends today. Today I buck up, figure out how to download them, and then immediately contact their techno emoji wizard team so that they can add these femojis, feminist emojis, to their collection immediately. Created by the geniuses at MAKERS, they feature all your feminist faves from Queen Bey to the Notorious RBG. Step aside, pizza emoji. We are moving on to brighter and better emoji shores.
I'm really stumped trying to think of a situation where I wouldn't want to respond with one of these emojis. In fact, I'm probably just going to give up texting with words altogether, because anybody who matters will understand what I'm trying to convey with a single picture of Mindy Kaling. You can follow their femoji journey on the Twitter hashtag #MAKERSFemojis while we impatiently wait for them to happen in real life. I don't know when the next emoji update is going to be, but I do know that if this isn't a part of it, then I will never smiley uncertain face at anyone ever again.
Here are some of MAKERS awesome feminist emojis:
Actually, I'm a little concerned she doesn't already have her own emoji. It's gonna be awkward for iOS people in a few months when we declare her overlord of Earth and they still haven't caught up.
Yeah, she's "Not That Kind Of Girl," but she is this kind of emoji.
Can't wait for this to get super meta when she uses it on an episode of The Mindy Project.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Anyone who sasses you will now have to answer to somebody who has been quite literally on top of the world.
And Meredith, the furriest feminist of all.
Hail to this Chief, too.
Of all the emoji likenesses I feel like this one is the most spot on.
WHO RUN THE WORLD?!
It doesn't get much better than this.
In the almighty words of Lizzie McGuire, THIS IS WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF. Come on, technology. Make it happen.
