Unicode Consortium’s draft for Emoji 14.0 includes a “Pregnant Man” and “Pregnant Person.”
The emojis — which could appear on Apple’s iPhone and other technology products — are touted by the service as a mechanism to support “non-binary” people
A blog post from Emojipedia explains:
Pregnant Man and Pregnant Person are new, and recognize that pregnancy is possible for some transgender men and non-binary people. These are additions to the existing Pregnant Woman emoji.
Person with Crown is a gender-inclusive alternative to the existing emojis for Princess and Prince.
The above additions will mean that nearly all emojis can have default a gender neutral option, with choice to use a woman or man where relevant. A few exceptions remain, which are being reviewed, as per this Unicode Emoji Subcommittee report from 2020.
The service will also offer a “Coral” emoji to facilitate conversations about climate change.
Social media users were quick to point out that men cannot get pregnant.
