    The new update to Apple's iOS apparently adds several same-sex couples and two-daddy or two-mommy family emojis. As well as more politically-correct shading, suggesting emojis of different races.

    Personally, I haven't seen them - the update takes hours to download and keeps failing after tying up both my phone and my computer all day. It took three days for the iPad.

    I never actually use the iOS emoji. I can't make out what most of them are supposed to represent, and despite being numerous, they seem to lack any range of emotions. Just a lot of happy smiling yellow/orange people.

    Anyway, real LGBT emojis would have tops, bottoms, subs, doms, twinks, muscle-daddies... just to get started.

    D'Oh. Of course I can look at them on the iPad. (Which I rarely use for messaging).

    Lol. Try to insert one here and it just truncates the post. I still can't figure out what most of them are supposed to mean.

    i would suspect the emojis are not as universal as we would want them to be. I mean on serious republican cell phones and stuff.


    you can make the iPhone auto magic recognize / substitute strings. for example: "smile" can be make to appear as "icon_biggrin.gifsmile"
    it can insert a few kiss emojis every time you type your husband's name.

    the bad in doing this is the substitution will happen over all your mac devices, all the time. A kiss is not valid char in a file name so can be annoying.

    I should have said "a black guy with horns, a tail, and a pitchfork" for every time southbeach types in Obama.

    And for 43rueperronet for every time he types Art_Deco, a guy holding a martini glass with bubbles popping around his head and with a big red nose. (And if you're wondering if that big red nose is a clown nose or a drunk's nose, the answer is, "does it matter?")

    Well this deteriorated rapidly. I was thinking something more along the line of the hanky code, but you know, extremely graphic, but you know, sorta cute...

    Ahh you Apple people. I have had these emojis on my Android phone for so long that I don't even remember when I first saw them. Apple really needs some catching up to do.

    Never heard about hanky codes until I read this thread and googled it. I have a lot of catching up to do. icon_redface.gif
