Clbull,
tygerprints,

Nice plan! I like it. I've heard about those randy catholic school girls and their naughty shower behaviors. Don't ask where they put their rosary beads.

My only wish is, God would turn every person who has had a same-sex experience gold for one day. Just to demonstrate how many billions of people have had such an experience, though you might never have suspected it. And, the next day when you're back to flesh coloring again - you can keep your weight in gold for having had such a valuable experience in your lifetime.

Etterra,

Nothing can save her from having an emoji whore mother though.

Emoji hate is very much a millennial thing.

The childrens and the olds are wrong.

lightnsfw,

Can confirm. Am millennial and I only use emojis ironically. And to acknowledge messages I don’t want to actually respond to on Teams.

Woah now hold on there just a second buddy ol’ pal, we millennials are all about emojis! We called them smileys and emoticons sure, for forums and MSN Messenger etc, but we were all over 'em!

Then text messaging and Facebook came along and didn’t support that stuff and we were sad, but now they’re back!

Except standard emojis suck, they’re better on stuff like Discord now where you can just upload whatever emotes you want and use them wherever, and they can animate too! Really feels like being back in the forum/MSN Messenger Plus! days 😁

frezik,

The odd emoji at the end of a message is fine. It’s embedding them throughout the text that makes it borderline unreadable.

Kusimulkku,

You’re saying it like it’s a bad thing

isVeryLoud,

I mean, it is a bad thing when you can’t relate to anything. We should strive for age diversity to account for this.

CptEnder,

Yeah… tbh it’s the main thing I miss on Reddit. The userbase of Lemmy seems to be older and unrelatable to me. Also tbh the meme subs were wayyyyy more dank on Reddit.

The whole joke plays into a terminally horny me-me emoji copypasta that people liked to crank out a few years ago - making it “moldy”! The point is the emojis! Here’s one for dickmas that takes it to 11:

DriftinGrifter,

I think I just came a little

dejected_warp_core,

I… I think my retina detached after trying to read this.

Makeshift,

I still don’t and probably never will understand why people use the same emoji more than once in a row.

Every other word is tacky and hard to read but I get it’s like… just a thing for people who grew up with emojis instead of little text emoticons. Or like older people trying to be a fellow kid kind of thing.

But the same one 5 times in a row? That’s just nonsense.

(I know I’m responding to a copypasta. It’s just on the topic.)

glizzyguzzler,
@glizzyguzzler@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Don’t get too hung up on emojis, they’re just a new form of text! Most people I know use them ironically or to respond to coworkers that you don’t want to type text to.

As far as I remember, text filled with emojis was used by FB-era people to do like MLM (mid-level-marketing; pyramid schemes) ads. First time I saw it used not ironically.

Their text style was ripe for mocking since it was tacky af.

Some me-melords turnt it horny and usually a lil gay and you’ve got purposely tacky and over the top copypastas! Like this one (personally, not enough emoji for me):

OMG it’s ARB-WHORE DAY 🌲🌴🌳 on this day 📆 we celebrate MOMMY EARTH 👩‍👧and plant trees 🌳 that will someday grow up to be BIG 🫦 and LONG 📏 and HARD 👊😩😛😏 for the good girls to CLIMB 🙆‍♀️ so plant a HO-ak tree 🥦 a chestNUT 💦 an ASSpen 🍑 or a cottonWOOD 🪵🍆 maybe ur a BIRCH BETCH 🤭 or a will-HO ⁉️ so get DIRTY 🧑‍🌾😳 and get those lil sprouts 🌱 all WET 😌 🚿 so they can get 🪨 BIG and STRONG 💪🤤 cuz today all of the arb-WHORES 🌵are gonna get a TREEat 🪴 planted in their 💃ASS today 🌝🌚 cuz MOMMY EARTH 👩 is CUMMING 4 U 🌎 send ➡️ this to ur 1️⃣0️⃣ DIRTIEST ARB-WHORES 🍌 if u get 0️⃣ back then ur a weeping willHO 😭😭😭 if u get 5️⃣ back ur a SICKamore SKANK 💚😇 ✅ &&& if u get 1️⃣0️⃣ back then ur a gonna get a special 🔩 walNUT just 4 u 💋💋💋

summerof69,

The joke doesn’t need your snobbery either.

modifier,

Well I certainly apologize to you for any pain I’ve caused and I will make sure to smooth things over with the joke too.

I'm just gonna come out and say it: Emojis have gone too far.

lugal,

😇

De_Narm,

Do people actually use them like this? I’d assume its part of the joke, but then again I’m so old neither I nor my contacts use any emoji - we all “xD” and “:'D” each other like we did during the war I ought to tell you younglings about.

I’m a zoomer and I also thoroughly dislike emojis in most situations. Emoticons feel so much more personal c:

Korne127,
@Korne127@lemmy.world avatar

I think “I’m so old” doesn’t make the most sense as reasoning, considering that especially Boomers and old people are often famous for over-using emojis.

guywithoutaname,

It’s more of a missing middle. Boomers and some Gen x use emojis literally while Gen Z and some millennials use emojis ironically or humorously.

De_Narm,

It depends. Not using emoji is certainly a trait most often found in old people, it’s just that very old people swing in the other direction.

Korne127,
@Korne127@lemmy.world avatar

I guess it depends on how you define old and very old.

poppy,

My (very kind, sweet, wholesome) 70 year old boss at work uses a lot of emoji. Not to this extent, but more than one a text seems like a lot to me and he has used 4-5.

Korne127,
@Korne127@lemmy.world avatar

I use :) and :D really much (the former extremely much, like really in every second sentence). :( also sometimes. But there are also quite some Emojis I often use, especially 😅. And being on Discord, there are also many custom emotes like :KEKW: I frequently use.

v4ld1z,

I’ll go on a limb and guess you’re German?

Korne127,
@Korne127@lemmy.world avatar

Yes. How did you know?
My English in that comment wasn’t very good, but I was really sleep deprived when I wrote it, sorry for that.

v4ld1z,
@v4ld1z@lemmy.zip avatar

Das kekw hat dich primär verraten, aber die anderen Smileys werden so gut wie nur von Deutschen benutzt. :D

lugal,

I think it’s those who didn’t grow up in the internet age and came here much later. What Gretchen McCulloch calles “Pre Internet People” in her book Because Internet. Meaning they grow up before internet and were introduced to it much later. Think of boomers who get their first smartphone because their son in law is afraid they get lost in the forest or something. You get the vibes.

So I think in this case it is part of the joke, making fun of older conservatives

Magnetar,

White hands in the center and black hands expelled to the fringes, what are you trying to say?

Annoyed_Crabby,

Uh oh, op EXPOSED!

tweeks,

Or it’s the order of commands, looking at how the fingers point, in which case it’s the reverse of what you imply he’s trying to say.

roscoe,

You’re missing the bottom row of dark hands. Please fix this before I spend all day thinking about it.

It also wouldn’t hurt to change the font size on “this” so the middle row doesn’t bulge out.

How bout this? Sync doesn’t support subscript so I’m not sure how this looks.


Opened in browser, superscript looks better, still jacked in sync tho.

roscoe, (edited )

It just put ~s on either side so it bulges more. I appreciate the effort though.

Yeah, that looks good in browser. I guess jerboa doesn’t support subscript either.

ZMonster,
@ZMonster@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, that’s what it did on sync. But it looks legit in FF.
