NEW EMOJIS AIM TO HELP CHILDREN TALK ABOUT ABUSE



Written by Jack Blocker

As BRIS, the organisation behind Abused Emojis says, "a complex reality demands a complex set of symbols."

The Swedish non-profit has created a free app that provides the user with a unique set of emojis. The familiar symbols are shown in situations of abuse that may be hard to convey in words. This means the user can warn the organisation about their suffering by sending an emoji, thereby eliminating the potential risks that come with phone calls and texts.

Like most things that hail from Scandinavia, the emojis are subtle, understated and completely effective.

Except this one. I have no idea what it means:

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
