iOS 6 Now Features Gay & Lesbian Emoji (Also, Cute Monkeys)



This is really great. Apple has taken the initiative in iOS 6 to update the operating system’s selection of emoji — or visual characters — to now not have some options for gay and lesbian users, including a gay and lesbian couple holding hands. Sweet!

That’s not all, of course. There’s also some cute new monkey who can do no evil, see no evil, and hear no evil, apparently. Hope they can’t smell evil, either, because they are just a few columns down from a grinning, anthropomorphical piece of crap.

I wish there were some gay and lesbian monkey emoji, but I guess Apple had to leave something back for iOS 7.
