Opinion: Apple’s non-binary emojis are a step in the right direction

Apple rolled out 328 new emojis on Monday, giving users the option to select ones that are non-binary. This means that people won't have to identify as masculine or feminine when they choose their emojis. Why is this so important? Consider that gender is, in the end, a made-up convention-- and compelling people (emoji users, for example) to make it relevant to everyday interactions hurts every one of us, no matter how we conceive of ourselves.
