    On android here, an du have never had that issue. 🤷🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️

    Also on that note, I did have a suspicion that it was a gender neutral reason but had never been able to differentiate between the male and the gender neutral. I have actually been using that the whole time even though I am a he/him cis straight 🤷

    I don’t get the gender neutral either (using Gboard on an older Android). Which is a bit odd because as far as I can tell gender neutral is the base character, and the male and female versions are customisations that are applied as if they were accented characters.

    I’d rather have them all as no-gender, no-race, generic little yellow peeps but eh…

      But seriously, I think we should have never went down the rabbit hole of giving the yellow people skin colours, because then we had to give them genders, and then suddenly people are marginalised because they aren’t included.

      I still want ginger emoji variants now 🤣

        There’s your problem. Gender neutral is first in Gboard. 🤷

        You could actually download Gboard from the play store if it isn’t already bundled with your phone.

    Try install a different keyboard. I’m using Microsoft SwiftKey and it gives access to all variations of the emoji with a long press 🤷‍♂️

        Thanks, but I can get that too, it’s just when you use the search bar to type in a term, like “shrug”, " tipping hand", “kneeling”, “massage”, or “haircut”, that it only displays the male and female forms (for me). I’m using Samsung Keyboard because it allows for some good clipboard features that others don’t, unfortunately.

    It’s the same face. The only thing that changes is the hair length and color of shirt. Just use the one most like you or something.

    Guys can have long hair and wear purple. Girls can have short hair and wear blue.

      Perhaps the gender neutral one is the one that looks most like them…?

        Yeah that’s why I use it lol I’m a dude with long hair and that’s what it looked like to me.

        Didn’t even realize it was supposed to be gender neutral

        To be honest it does, but also I just feel silly asserting my gender when I’m trying to simply convey a reaction. I’m not nonbinary but I try to make things non-gendered by default unless there’s a reason to. Why does anyone care about my gender as it relates to a shrugging reaction? That’s where I’m at.

          I miss when emojis were emoticons with no gender, just a lil happy yellow circle.

      Gboard is missing a bunch of other emojis and is slow as fuck to add new ones though

      SwiftKey is far better for emojis, Gboard is better for languages, otherwise they’re around the same

        I have all the last emojis in Gboard. Gboard use the set of emoji of your version of Android. Google did a change this year to accelerate the deployment of the emojis on Gboard through the play services.

        SwiftKey use its own set of emojis. I guess.
