Who uses ♂️ Male Sign emoji?

The male sign emoji most often appears on social media because your operating system doesn’t support male versions of emoji people. That means you’re seeing someone indicating a male runner, swimmer, shrugger.

This problem affects a few emoji professionals, like the man police officer 👮‍♂️, which is based on the default police officer emoji 👮 and the male sign emoji. (Other male professionals sequence the man emoji 👨 with the default emoji for the profession, such as the man teacher 👨‍🏫.)

The male sign emoji doesn’t see the same symbolic resonance as the female sign emoji, used to champion women’s rights. (Because patriarchy?) When the male sign emoji is used on its own, which is rare, it simply signifies something is “male” or intended for men.
