Love texting innuendo? Hate using words? Well, do we have good news for you.
Emojipedia has announced that 230 new emojis have been approved by the Unicode Consortium and are coming to your smartphones in 2019.
In addition to vital communication tools we never knew we needed like Flamingo, Yawn Face, and Waffle, we're also getting this cute little pinching-hand emoji!

New emoji have been finalized for release later this year.
This is the new "pinching hand" emoji.
I do not think that is what people will use it for. pic.twitter.com/eS6WpzVs2Z

Yeeeah, we don't want to speak too soon, but it's starting to look like the Eggplant Emoji has met its match.
It gets even better with the input of our favorite smoking-hot model and ASL expert Nyle DiMarco (who is probably also appreciating the new Hearing Aid emojis):
yep also if you tap twice (tips of index and thumb) on your front chin with palm facing yourself, it’ll mean gay.

You've got to admire all the plucky people who are trying to play this off like "Look, I'm squishing your head!" but even the straights know what's up.

The new emoji rollout also includes a bunch of new couples of different genders and ethnicities holding hands, as well as an otter, a pair of underpants, a stick of butter and an ice cube. The vaguely inappropriate possibilities are endless.
