    My Fellow Gingers, We Need To Talk About The Redhead Emojis

    "Ginger emojis are coming." โ€” said in Jon Snow seriousness

    Look, it's been a long time coming for redheads and emojis โ€” we've begged for them to seemingly no end.

    I know it's been long, because I personally wrote about them maybeeee coming back in January, and now it's August and they're still not fully here, OK?

    Like, come the fuck on.

    All this work for ethnically diverse emojis and none with red hair? ๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐ŸฟFrom here on out, this one represent me: ๐Ÿ‘‘

    But now, my fellow reds, our time looks to have ARRIVED!

    That's right, ginger emojis are coming to a phone near you in June of 2018.

    Yeah, it's pretty exciting stuff! And there are rumors that there's also a mermaid emoji that just so happens to be ginger as well (duh, obviously).

    Other things coming to emoji land? Curly hair, white hair, and people with no hair!

    New hair proposal is to encode new code points, but implement as ZWJ Sequences. Shouldnโ€™t see them appear like thesโ€ฆ

    Just realllyyyy looking forward to finally being able to express my truest self.
