It's not for us to say whether history will laugh at us or not, but it feels like we've passed the Rubicon of...well, something.
According to a recent claim from Fox News, Apple's latest iPhone software update features a "pregnant guy" emoji. According to the source, the new emoticon sets also feature "a variety of additional gender neutral cartoons."
In March, a new update was released that includes the pregnant guy, as well as a gender-neutral "person with crown" emoji and 35 additional emojis.
The "pregnant man" and "pregnant person" emojis were initially released in January as part of an optional update, but they are now included in iOS 15.4, which is available to all iPhone users.
The emoji, according to Fox News host Greg Gutfeld, is a "step toward acceptability for men with 'beer guts.'"
"Yes, thank God, it's finally here. With Apple's newest optional update, a beer gut emoji has debuted on iPhones. This new emoji is available in five distinct skin tones, allowing someone with a large beer gut to be whichever shade they choose "Gutfeld snorted.
