Sloths and guide dogs among next crop of new emojis
The Unicode Consortium has unveiled the 59 new emojis that will be rolled out this March. They include interracial couples, guide dogs and an adorable sloth hanging from a branch. Other symbols include a drop of blood and a pinching symbol, prompting people to joke on social media that they were new ways to talk about menstruation and small penises, respectively. New animal emojis making the cut in this edition are a skunk, an otter and a flamingo. When gender variations and skin tone options are taken into account, the 75 emojis increase to a range of 230 possibilities.
