However, some users were unimpressed with the new emoji.

But he might be wrong - as it appears not everyone thought about it as a suggestive gesture.

Updates will start hitting in April and continue through the end of the year, according to Emojipedia.

Social media reactions to new emoji have been mixed, with some celebrating the new symbol, while others questioned whether a "blood drop" emoji is really a "period" emoji.

The Unicode Consortium, the governing body in charge of the official emoji, has announced a bunch of new pictographs for version 12.0.

Emiliano Sala - Nantes demanding first instalment of transfer fee
Wales reported the French club have threatened legal action if the £15 million (NZ$28m) is not paid within the next 10 days. It is understood that the agreement between the clubs was to process the payments in instalments over three years.

A number of physical disabilities are now represented including a range of wheelchairs, a blind person, sign language, hearing aids, along with two seeing eye dogs. Even guide dogs are included.

Many of these new images focus on inclusivity. This includes new gender-inclusive emojis, more skin tone options for some emojis, and better representation for people with disabilities. These include a sloth, waffle, skunk, sari, white and brown hearts, and much more. Android and iOS users are getting a ton of new emojis (230 to be precise), which means you'll soon be able to express yourself in more ways than you ever thought possible.

After years and years of waiting (okay, maybe not that long, ) Emoji has finally chose to go with the flow and treat the world to a character that will truly allow us to express ourselves during that time of the month.

"These images are just samples: vendors for mobile phones, PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall emoji designs", Unicode Constorium states. Emojipedia has created the ideal answer.
