Not a mom, but this analysis makes sense to me.
Emojis fit a certain communication style.
Some people communicate with humor, others communicate with facts, others appeal to a cause, and more.
And some people use emojis.
I don’t use them, usually, but once in a while it’s fun.
No style of communication takes away anybody else’s voice. A leaking milk mom emoji does not preclude a sober analysis of icons of motherhood in an academic journal the next day. Everybody gets a say. And life goes on.
I don’t put up posters of kittens dangling from wires with the caption, “Hang in there!” either. But I love them when I run across them. It’s not me, but it’s somebody, and they made their point with the poster. Best.
