Gender binary toilet signs won’t be in Mutant Standard.

Mutant Standard's gender-neutral toilet icon (an iconographic representation of a toilet viewed from the front) and a WC icon.

Mutant Standard’s toilet symbols: a gender neutral toilet icon and WC.

 

The binary gender toilet icons will be joining various other Unicode Standard emoji that will outright not be included in Mutant Standard, such as police officer, border patrol, family ZWJs and others. You can see the full list and reasonings for them here.

 

Gender-segregated bathrooms reinforce negative and damaging stereotypes about male and female genders while also acting as a bludgeon against gender-nonconforming and non-binary people, policing their appearance and behaviour.

They don’t really make sense and they don’t correspond to how people perceive gender, as highlighted by the ridiculous backlash against transgender people using bathrooms that best correspond to their gender identity.

🚻 has been replaced with a gender-neutral toilet icon and 🚾 is also in Mutant Standard. (both pictured above)

 

 

Mutant Standard S1 sketches

These were all spun off really quickly in the space of a few hours and mostly derivatives of other emoji, so there isn’t much in the way of process sketches.

The bottom row is where the actual finished emoji sit.

(This file also has a personal think_dzuk emoji and a think_mutant emoji which were made as gags, but not intended to be an actual part of the S1 release).

Mutant Standard 0.2.2

Promo image of Mutant Standard 0.2.2 - all of the new emoji are arranged in a scattered manner around the logo in front of a tan background.

0.2.2 is a bird-focused update:

  • Lots of new bird emoji!
  • 4 more claw hands (the claw hands are now complete!)
  • Improved western_dragon emoji
  • eastern_dragon emoji
  • Some other small improvements here and there.

Like with all the current updates this season, this won’t be the only update with birds in it, but it’s a big start :).

Mutant Standard 0.2.1

For the next few months, I’m going to put my attention towards animals, nonhumans and humans, starting with animals.

0.2.1 introduces a bunch of new furry animals and almost completes the paw hand set!!! (30/31 to be exact)

It also introduces the rest of the Unicode hearts. E:

Mutant Standard S1

The other day, I made a bunch of novelty thinking emoji and shared them on Mastodon, and thus the idea of making ‘special’ releases was born.

Special releases is a space for occasional memes and dumb bullshit. Like VIP emoji, they are shortcode-only.
