PC-limpness fail.

For I don't see any indication of sexual orientation, disability or religion.

They are also simply racist recolours of existing oppressive emoticons which all have standard heterowhitepatriarchal facial features.

They should look like they are suffering. The black ones should all look angry (there should be a Samuel L. Jackson "muthafucka!" emoticon).

:P

how do you make a smiley icon look gay? do you put a cock in it's mouth?

and do you have to put a smiley in a wheelchair? or do you have to give it down syndrome?

religion? does the jewish one have a kippa, gigantic nose, and mountains of money in the background? does a catholic one have the penis of a little boy in it's mouth?

seriously, political correctness is terrible.

What about a gay catholic ?

Anyhow - you've not included bacteria on your list. They need to be included too.
