Women plan on using the ‘pinching hand’ emoji as a clapback to unsolicited pics

Last February 5, 2019, the Unicode Consortium, a non-profit organization dedicated to approving the emoticon symbols, unveiled 230 new emojis which is set to release in September or October of this year. And in their latest set of icons is the infamous “pinching hand” emoji.

Although this image looks seemingly harmless, many netizens have noted how the image can be a code for small penises.

But according to a number of online users, this emoji can be used for more than just gossip – it can be a clapback for all the horny guys who send unsolicited dick pics.   

In an era where one photo can instantly appear on one’s phone or computer, it can be difficult to avoid the graphic and unwarranted photos from some “thirsty” individuals. So, we agree with netizens who plan on using the pinching hand emoji for good instead of evil.
