New Feminist Crisis: Sexist 'Emojis' are Oppressing Women. Yes, Really...
Nothing gets my life juice boiling more than the sight of high heels. A torture mechanism for the modern woman. They should be banned from every conceivable portrayal of daily living. Sound dramatic? I was only kidding. Too bad it's someone's actual cause. Don't act surprised now. Drama is the feminist way after all (see Video: Dildo Waving Feminists Confused When Told Concealed Carry Can Prevent Rape and Feminist Tries Shaming Cat-Callers… with Selfies?!).
One woman wants the "oppressive" symbol of the stiletto emoji to be cushioned between flats. If you were unaware of the high heel emoji crisis, you might be an ignorant bigoted white supremacist. Educate thyself.
There's an implicit gender bias lurking in your emoji keyboard which you might not have even noticed.
There are currently three women's shoe emoji, but all three of them have high heels. One Silicon Valley-based woman wants to change this. Independent arts publicist Floriane Hutchinson launched the #IWearFlats campaign to add a women's flat shoe emoji to our keyboards. Her proposal is currently up for discussion at the Unicode Consortium Emoji Subcommittee.
Flip to your emoji keyboard and scroll until you reach the clothing options. You'll notice five shoe emoji; a brown "man's shoe," a gender-neutral trainer or sneaker, and three high-heeled women's shoes. Hutchinson says this absence of a flat women's shoe emoji is problematic.
You know what else is problematic? The man's brown loafer. What about boat shoes? What about Jordans? What about stylish men's street boots? Uh oh. Her own unequal biases are triggering!
"The fact that women cannot opt in to have a female shoe without a heel is deeply problematic as the vast majority of women simply do not wear heels in their daily lives," says Hutchinson.
She hopes this campaign will spark a conversation about the "entrenchment of gender stereotypes" in the emoji-line-up. And she hopes that the focus on the footwear line-up will encourage other women to challenge gender biases in emoji and elsewhere.
Did anyone inform this woman that there is still poverty in the U.S.? How about human trafficking? AIDS in Africa? Because there are better causes to throw oneself at than emoji policing. Personally, I also find her emoji policing to be brutality toward men. What is shoe equality without the men's classic cowboy boot?
This is what the left does: they take a cause, like women's rights, and use it to max out the ridiculous meter. From Planned Parenthood to women's emoji shoe rights, illogical reasoning plagues the left like a lack of diet pills plagues Harvey Weinstein's medicine cabinet. Whether its p***y hats or abortion rights, feminists don't know how to use their God-given noggins.
Behold, the largest gathering of brainless, shirtless, ninnie-brained feminists in history:
