Rad Fems Campaign for a Period Emoji. Is an Abortion Version Next on Their Plate?

Rad Fems Campaign for a Period Emoji. Is an Abortion Version Next on Their Plate?

I almost never used emojis until I started with an app called Slack. One of the best features Slack has is the ability to add custom emojis. In all my time of using Slack, however, I never thought to add a “period emoji.” I guess I’m just not woke enough.

Yes, there is actually a campaign to add a “period emoji” to the standard set that everyone gets on their phones. I’m not sure why we need bodily function emojis, but again, it must be my manical misogynist mind holding me back.

Why do we need to normalize menstruation? I thought that was already pretty normal as it is. I mean, like Brianna Wu, I have never experienced the phenomenon, but it’s pretty much a fundamental part of the female human condition. Also, that design is incredibly bad. At least this one is a little more subtle.

But, wait, there’s more!

I have an idea. If we get a period emoji, perhaps we can get one for the men as well…

Chandra has an idea of what’s next. At first I laughed at this, but to be honest, I would expect a campaign along these lines within the next year.

If you would like to help support this insane movement, or else just laugh at it like I have, you can visit Plan International UK.

    If they can get a period, they should also do a semi-colon for those with colostomy bags. And the caret as diamonds are a girls best friend (though in the friend zone), but they can combine them with dollar and euro signs. Also something more discreet to avoid at shaming.

    Good thing for me I don’t understand emojis.

      These cunts would probably be part of the feminist crowd that find eggplant and similar emojis to be problematic because “phallic”

  • Uncle Max

    Let ’em have one. I want a confederate battle flag.

  • Maintenance Renegade

    What the hell happened to not broadcasting unnecesary information about unpleasant bodily functions?

  • Can we have an Anti-Feminist emoji too?

  • MusicToEat

    If it did get approved, it would be approximately 2 seconds before it was used by a male to a girl that was complaining about something. Then they’d be campaigning to have it removed.

    • Flowey

      someone needs to document that when that happens. It would be fucking hilarious.

  • Celerity

    But they’re already PMSing full time, where would it come from?

  • Mr0303

    Isn’t the purpose of an emoji to represent emotion? What emotion would a period one convey – “I’m angry for no reason and can’t be argued with!”?

    Feeling left out because I want a take a steaming dump emoji. End the defecation shame! Anyone else on board? Make krapping great again!

  • Russell Sperber

    How about a puss oozing wound emoji?

  • Silence Dogood

    Only rad fems think periods aren’t normalized. We don’t make women go out into the woods until it’s over, unlike some backwards african tribes that still exist. They really need to devote their energy to something meaningful and less retarded.
