Pregnant Man Emojis Could Be Approved in September by Emojipedia
'Pregnancy is possible for some transgender men'
A pregnant man emoji has been included in Emojipedia’s latest emoji draft list, which was published Thursday, and could be approved in 2021.
There is already a pregnant lady emoji, so the additional emojis would include a “pregnant man” and “pregnant person.”
According to the Emojipedia blog:
The new emojis “recognize that pregnancy is possible for some transgender men and non-binary people."
Another potential emoji is a figure wearing a crown, which Emojipedia defines as “a gender-inclusive alternative to the existing emojis for princess and prince."
The pregnant man pregnant person emojis were included in 14.0 drafts in 2021, and could appear on devices in mid-2022.

But the announcement received a fair bit of backlash.
The Daily Wire’s Editorial Director, Emily Zanotti, said:
“I’m really over this pregnant man bullsh*t.”
