Grindr’s Dirty New Emojis: More Swipe, Less Type
Not that dirty is ever a dirty word at The Sword. But now, Grindr’s new emojis make it possible to get dirty without ever typing a word.
In the ever-competitive gay app game, Grindr launched a new set of emojis with their latest update which now make it possible to hook-up playing Pictionary.
Top. Bottom. Into. Big Dick. Little dick. Jockstraps. Now this app has a toon for that.
Now you can label a bitch basic without spelling it out – not that anyone would ever be rude on Grindr. I do, however, wonder, just how many injuries might result from too many “bottom bunks” crashing into each other.
From PrEP to cut dick pics to catfished, the new emojis are nothing if not comprehensive.
Twerking. Jerking. Gay Voice. Right down to “4:20” which no, is not a reminder for daylight savings time.
Over 20,000 reasons why. And eight new ones every day!
Married cock. Eating ass. Size queen. They have you covered.
Though it’s mostly white characters, there’s even a nod to diversity.
Of course, not everyone is fan …
Grindr's new emoji keyboard includes a capital T, which is slang for meth. That's…boldly nonjudgmental, I guess? pic.twitter.com/HD6HvX5K01

The new Grindr emoji set is so… white. A blonde white girl is not at the root of "Bye Felicia" pic.twitter.com/hiuT8V4wPa

Maybe they have a point.
Or maybe, they’re just taking a swipe at Grindr instead of on Grindr.
Useful? Offensive? Just a gimmick? What do you think of these?
And now … back to our regularly scheduled pornography.
