Banned emoji 🏳️🌈⃠ Anti Gay Emoji copy paste 🤦⃠
Only because I don't want to generate hate and pain with this thing, I'll take a large detour and talk about sexuality and LGBT issue 👬 first and then I'll get to the anti emoji 💬⃠ and stuff. If you'd like to skip, you can scroll down and not read my psychedelia. I would rather have you read it 📖❤, but that's totally up to you 🙄😎. I guarantee that you'll agree with some parts and badly dislike others, but making you feel comfortable and all wise and confirming biases was not my point. Also, I'm definitely not all wise myself. Please, take this skeptically and think for yourself.

On LGBT and Anti LGBT
❤ 𝒜𝓁𝓁 𝓎ℴ𝓊 𝓃ℯℯ𝒹 𝒾𝓈 𝓁ℴ𝓋ℯ. ℒℴ𝓋ℯ 𝒾𝓈 𝒶𝓁𝓁 𝓎ℴ𝓊 𝓃ℯℯ𝒹. Being attracted to people is okay and natural. I know it's not really an easy subject as the mainstream media fake. 🎬📺🌞 Sᴜɴ ᴀʟᴡᴀʏs sʜɪɴᴇs ᴏɴ TV. Life is all 🍬 𝓈𝓌ℯℯ𝓉 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝓅ℴ𝓁𝒾𝓈𝒽ℯ𝒹 💅. Well, in the real rough world homosexuality is so much not a bygone matter of subject that some people actually ☝️ pack their 🎒 to go 🔫 a bunch of random people 👬 and themselves 👿 just to prove that point. ☚ People disown their children and friends. Little less now, but this used to be quite popular just a few generations ago. Oh yes, it's ⚡🅲🅷🅰🆁🅶🅴🅳⚡. So much so that you can trigger the worst in some people just by voicing out your honest concerns and legit doubts on the subject. I'm sure this article triggered a lot of folks.
It seems like LGBT is growing fast and 📈 exponentially. In 2019 StackOverflow survey identified that "This year, 1.2% of respondents identified as transgender, about double from last year.". Never in the multi million year life of humanity was a sex change operation possible up until very recently. Or even a hormone replacement therapy. And it's highly debatable what part of gender this can change, as it certainly can't change the person's genes and will most likely render the person "sterile". So in a way this changes a person's gender to zero. Yet it seems like in some countries today doctors prescribe this to teenage kids like candy. It's most likely a myth that nurture has 0 to do with some people becoming gay as opposed to bisexual/being horny for anybody, or anything. I'd say some may be gay strictly by nature, but looking at how different level of gayness seems to be in different countries and cities, it looks to me like culture matters a lot. And yet..

Anyway. All will be fine. We are all one. A large pile of bodies lying on the floor of the Earth. Overworking ourselves to an early grave as if what we're doing really matters. Sacrificing 𝕙𝕠𝕟𝕖𝕤𝕥 𝕙𝕦𝕞𝕒𝕟 𝕔𝕠𝕟𝕟𝕖𝕔𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟 for the sake of that thing I absolutely have to do right now and it can't wait. Have no time for you friend, sorry, let's catch up later. The last thing we need is to start throwing stones at each other.
Do you find yourself struggling to relate to non-strictly-heterosexual people and find yourself repulsed? Well. I really recommend you listen to some podcasts where gay people talk about their lives. It's really important to be able to hear and feel a real living breathing person. Just reading scientific facts and stuff on the internet is not really going to give you any change of heart ❤. You may think that matters. Not much. It's not a logical thing. You have to feel a real person. Feel compassion. Building imagination around a fictional stereotype is not going to work. Understand how this person is so much more than just the stereotype and also how little % of her identity this actually is.
The Future of Life
One thing that you'll probably find most difficult to grasp is this. Really soon, possibly within your lifetime gender will stop to matter. Entirely. We'll all be of the same gender in a way. Synthetic life. I predict there's about 60% chance that brain "uploading" into computers will begin before year 2060. Soon after the humanity will develop the first AGI - artificial general intelligence. Oh, and by the way AGI will probably fix climate change while raising world's GDP at least tenfold within first 10 years. What a time to be alive! I don't know about your religious views. But in reality we might be among the actual first humans to live eternally. Our soul - our psyche - our conciousness, in an augmented form may live forever. No Allah required. If you'd like to know more about this you can lookup Ray Kurzweil and the concept of technological Singularity.
On Gay Pride, No Gay Pride and Anti Emoji
I really like the campaign name "Black Lives Matter". It's peaceful and it doesn't say "Black lives are the only ones that matter", or "White lives suck!". Though, even in this case that's what some people see in this phrase. So much so that during this campaign in America most Americans disliked this slogan and preferred "All Lives Matter". And so much so that I know a story of a programmer being kicked out of Facebook (as in working in a company, not a ban on profile). Why? For changing "Black Lives Matter" to "All Lives Matter" spelled in Legos on a wall inside an office.
But that's not what I would say about "White Pride". I think there's a very good literal reason why a lot of people hate "Gay Pride" movement. As beautiful as the very aesthetic qualities of the rainbow flag 🏳️🌈 may be. A large percent of people has a negative attitude to it through an association of it with the "Gay Pride" ✊ movement, rather than some non-shaming non-homophobic campaign. Is it the right to be proud of being born to ultrarich parents in the United States and get a surname Trump? I guess, in the United States that's a good enough qualification to become a president. Is it okay to be proud of being of "Aryan race"? Is being a heterosexual something to be proud of? Is not being born disabled something to be proud of? Is being born disabled something to be proud of? Is being born privileged something to be proud of? Is being a victim something to be proud of?
What you should be proud of is something you've made yourself. Or you can be proud for somebody, because they did something. It's legit to even be proud of what your children did, because you've made that happen in a way. And when you say you're proud of something, that means that that's something good and if it were otherwise it would probably be worse. Well, almost everybody in this world understands that being queer is nothing to be proud of. Some understand why it's nothing to be ashamed of, but almost everybody knows it's most definitely nothing to be proud of. It's not something good. And being gay, or transgender is, hopefully, not something you've turned yourself into. Hopefully, it's something you were just born with. And so it's nothing to be proud of as much as nothing to be ashamed of. I thing the queer community needs a campaign change. Because "Gay pride" movement is only about being loud and people shouting and kicking each other. "Gay pride" is an arrogant slogan that started as an arrogant angry pushback against shaming, that came mostly from religious indocrination, btw. And it's very name, which says what it stands for pushes non gay people away. Includes even non gay queer people. This slogan sucks. If you say being gay is something to be proud of and others suck, that only forces people to think that sexual orientation is something to be proud, or ashamed of. And that sexual orientation is purely a matter of concious decision-making and you should become gay, because it's cool. To lots of folks out there the "pride flag" 🏳️🌈 sucks by association. "Gay Pride" parades 🏳️🌈 and all that generates resonance, but that's the very resonance that makes a lot of people displeased with the queer community. It's absolutely reasonable that a lot of people view it same way they would view "White Pride" parades. It's only the most condescending and forgiving people who view it otherwise.
Okay, now going back to why you're here. 🤦⃠ Social networks descended into chaos after one Twitter user cleverly trolled by composing an 🏳️🌈 LGBT emoji with a combining symbol for ban. That symbol, when put after any text character, and almost any emoji turns it into an anti-character, like this 👍⃠.. If you're on Windows right now, though, the anti gay pride combo may not render properly for you outside of maybe Twitter, though, because.. Microsoft kind of sucks at the emoji game. Adding that symbol to the rainbow flag emoji decomposes the rainbow flag into a flag emoji and a rainbow emoji on Windows 10 right now. So that symbol combo was such a strong trigger that it turned hordes of people to blame Apple and the rest of emoji designer companies for allegedly making an anti gay emoji. 🤦⃠ This symbol combo has triggered a lot of rage and feelings of social isolation in social media for over two weeks of late Feb 2019.
I have to say that some people feel threatened, sad, lonely and angry about this thing. And Russian troll factories have used it a lot to their advantage in the game of turning Westerners against one another. If you're feeling angry about this thing yourself - my best advice to you is to simply not engage with all that. I understand that it can be mentally hard to switch yourself to a different topic, when this one is highly triggering, but you won't prove anything to anybody and will just waste time on other people's 🐃💩. Even friends can get mean over the internet - some people switch to a completely altered state of conciousness there. And some Russians are paid petrol dollars for remotely ripping apart social fabric. It's 🅱🅴🆂🆃 🆃🅾 🅽🅾🆃 🅶🅸🆅🅴 🅰 🅵🆄🅲🅺 𓂸. Meanwhile, if you're planning to repost anti gay pride flag yourself you have to understand that some people view this as being an aggression against them and disliking of them. I wouldn't. ☮ Make love, not war ⚔
The Anti Emoji
Note that this doesn't work on newest iOS after an apparent move by Apple.
Purely adding that combine and ban character to most emojis wouldn't work. I had to be a bit cleaver about it and also add a special character before the ban character to make this thing work with almost all other emoji. Interesting to note that when you combine a country flag with this, you get a hashtag instead of a ban. I don't think, though, that it's a good idea to post it with a meaning like "Hashtag USA", because there's a possibility that for some it will look like a country banned symbol. Also, mind that, sadly, on Facebook, this may not work well due to something Facebook programmers did about text formatting that prevents the ban symbol from combining properly with the emoji.
The design concept is out! Have fun composing your own anti emojis and anti symbols! Here's the character that prohibits. Copy it out and paste after any emoji, or other symbol for ultimate shock effects. Make the next big meme.
Remember, you first put a text symbol/emoji and then paste the prohibition symbol. Try making an "alcohol ban" emoji here
Fun? 🆂🅷🅰🆁🅸🅽🅶 is 🅲🅰🆁🅸🅽🅶. 😉✌ Play with it
And this article wouldn't be complete without some emoji and symbols to play with, of course.
