if you use white skin tone emojis in front of me instead of just the default I *will* judge you

@thufie Is it OK if I choose skin tone emoji by pseudorandom drawing?

@n8chz yeah so I usually use 👮🏻‍♂️ when talking about klan members but just use the normal 😀 emojis for everything else

thank goodness you can't make a white smiley, that would instantly become a white supremacy thing. 🏂 anyways enjoy this snowboarder emoji that you can sometimes input with different skin tone even though most platforms don't even show skin because it is A FUCKING SNOWBOARDER EMOJI IN FULL SNOWBOARDING GEAR.

I can understand using a darker skin tone because you don't feel seen as a person of color or something, but the fact that *specifically white people* didn't feel *seen* enough with the classic emojis because they ate too yellow or something weirds me the fuck out tbh. We got by just fine without them for a good period of time and it would never have entered my mind that the yellow smiley face was insufficient or even was meant to be*my face* rather than the classic yellow smiley face popular since the vietnam war which has seen countless variations.

@n8chz leaving the "ate" typo because it is funny to me

@thufie FWIW I'm a pretty heavy user of smileys (since the :-) days) and can't even remember a time I used skin tone emojis.

@n8chz smileys are the shit. bonus points for weird low-rez animated yellow smiley gifs in cheezy 3D

@thufie tbf i was never sure whether using white skin tone or default was more appropriate. because I feel if darker skinned people generally try to match their skin tone while white people generally use the default yellow (which tends to be the case from my observations), that kind of reinforces the idea of white as default? tho idk if anyone else sees it that way.
