There’s a story over at Daily Mail claiming the use of the thumbs up emoji by us Boomer geezers is seen as “hurtful” by members of Gen Z.
Or is it just that some 24-year-old on Reddit can’t tell the difference between a thumb and a middle finger?
BTW, inspection of this blog and my Twitter and Gab accounts shows that I rarely bother with emoji. The like/dislike icons are not really emoji.
The Thumbs Up Emoji is ableist and discriminates against people without thumbs.
And thumbs down is… OK? At least for now?
It’s also whateverphobic towards those who identify as cats or other genders without opposable thumbs.
