You guys will never believe the strangely sexual meaning of the mask emoji
I’m forever changed
by Una Dabiero
I think by now we all have our favorite emoji. I mean, shit, we basically only type in these little animated faces anymore. My favorite emoji is the little blushing face with its hands by its face, but that's neither here nor there. If your favorite emoji is the red monster, I have NEWS for you. You will never be able to look at this little guy again, because his history is… interesting.
A Twitter account dedicated to ancient hoes (yes, this exists) tweeted an ancient painting featuring a VERY familiar face. The emoji's face. And guess what? He's a fucking dildo.

I legitimately can't believe a DILDO EMOJI has been hiding right under our eyes for this long. I mean, I'm sure it has other meanings, but damn. That thicc nose will distract me forever.
