A range of diverse emojis has been released thanks to iDiversicons. Representing more racial, gender and sex options for those who like to be as accurate as they possibly can when communicating with such playful tools, these diverse emojis are much more important than one may first think. They provide a larger sense of acceptance around the globe while teaching children, who use emoticons quite frequently, that diversity is a part of life.

An app of over 900 diverse emojis, in addition to a slew of different cultural references, there are also same-sex couples, women in headscarves, women in different professions and more inclusivity in general. Created by Katrina Parrot, she was inspired when her daughter, Katy, asked, "Why don't emoticons look like the person sending them?" Now they truly can.
