Where does ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿฆฏ Man With Probing Cane emoji and ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฏ Woman With Probing Cane emoji come from?

In 2019, Unicode approved, under Emoji 12.0, a host of accessibility-based emoji to represent people with and aspects of various disabilities, such as guide dogs, hearing aids, and people who are deaf, use wheelchairs, or are blind or vision-impaired.

Emojipedia

These additions included probing cane, ๐Ÿฆฏ.ย When the probing cane emoji is paired with the man emoji,ย ๐Ÿ‘จ, or woman emoji,ย ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€, it becomesย woman with probing cane emoji,ย ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฏ, or man with probing cane emoji, ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿฆฏ.

As with many human-based emoji, these emoji display with a default yellow skin and hair, but skin-tone modifiers are available.

Emojipedia

People who are blind or visually impaired have long used various staffs and canes for orientation and mobility, though the white cane became standard after World War I. It has since become a widely used assistive technology, and commonly recognized that a person using one is blind or has trouble seeing.

On unsupported platforms, the probing caneย emoji will display as a blank box, and man (or woman) with probing cane and will display as man (or woman) emoji followed by that blank box. On supported platforms, the emoji will display as a single emoji.
