Comparison of the 1997 Human emoji and the 2021 Human emoji:
The Unicode consortium actively strives for specificity and variety, including in the field of gender aspects. For example, in the original Japanese emoji of the 1990s, the variety in the selection of images of a person was limited to four examples of images of a person. And with the latest emoji update, the number of combinations has exceeded 40 options.
1997 Human Emoji Options:
1997 Human Emoji Images include emojis:
The images themselves are poorly detailed, they have only one, black and white color and are presented in 4 options. And the last of the presented emojis can be identified as a man, a woman, a clown, a mime, or anyone else.
2021 Human Emoji Options:
Older options of emojis couldn’t cover the full range of human characteristics, such as skin color, gender, hairstyle, etc. Today people's outlook has become more varied and less conservative. The strict gradation of occupations and deeds has gone for a particular type of gender. Unisex haircuts and clothing appeared.
Below is a list of some of the emojis available in 2021:
- Human category: 👨, 👩, 🧑, 👨🦲, 🧔, 👩🦰.
- Professions category: 👮, 👮♂️, 👮♀️, 🧑🌾, 👨🌾, 👩🌾.
- Fantasy Images category: 🦸, 🦸♀️, 🦸♂️, 🧝, 🧝♀️, 🧝♂️.
Since 1997, the emoji depicting a person has appeared in different colors of skin and hair, hairstyles have been replenished, hats and clothes have been added. In 2016, in the emoji version 4.0, the professions emojis were added: teacher, doctor, detective, police officer, scientist, etc.
Therefore, Unicode in the 14.0 update introduced new color schemes for some of the old emojis and added new ones. Including the unique emoji Pregnant man and Pregnant person.
Pregnant Man Emoji
