As of Tuesday (May 23), Twitter users can take 239 new emoji for a test drive.The update will soon be rolled out on Facebook too.In total, there are 56 entirely brand new characters.Gender and skin tone variations account for the other 183.
Another addition is a woman with headscarf, proposed by Rayouf Alhumedhi from Saudi Arabia.
The 15-year-old teenage girl wrote in her proposal to Unicode: “The addition of the hijab emoji will prove to be a step forward in tolerance and diversity.”
Or, a step back for the rest of mankind.
In Rayouf Alhumedhi’s Saudi Arabia, she can’t go out of her house without covering her head. She can’t drive. She can’t do anything without a male relative lest she face arrest or worse. (See: Gang rape VICTIM sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in jail for being alone with a man)
That’s the tolerance and diversity Muslims and the leftists at Twitter and Facebook want for the rest of us.
That tolerance and diversity was on display the day before Twitter rolled out the hijabi emoticon when a Muslim Terror Bomber Targeted Kids at a Manchester Concert, 22 Killed, 59 Wounded.
And for Memorial Day…nothing, but Twitter helps Muslims celebrate ‘Month of Jihad’ with new icons:
