 The Japanese woodblock print shows two women having sex

A Hawaii-based woman has seen a tweet she posted last night go viral.

Ari, a lesbian in Honolulu, re-shared a tweet depicting a Japanese woodblock print from the 17th century. It purports to show two women having sex. One has tied a traditional tengu mask around her waist. She penetrates her partner using its long nose.

Shunga woodblock prints were known for often depicting erotic scenes, and these sometimes included images of same-sex lovemaking.

Amused by the image, Ari tweeted: ‘Bro. That’s why we have this emoji 👺 shook. We must all now use this emoji to represent a strap.

‘We shall mark this day down in Lesbian history.’

At the time of writing, it had 13k re-tweets and over 32k likes.

A few hours after posting the first tweet, Ari jokingly tweeted, ‘I feel honored to have started a new lesbian tradition.’

‘Over the years I’ve learned to handle the homophobia’

Ari told GSN she was blown away by how the emoji tweet had been received.

‘I’m actually extremely surprised on how far the tweet has gone, I feel like I didn’t tweet any different than I usually do!’

So far, the vast majority of comments have been positive and funny, although a few homophobic messages have begun to creep in.

‘I’ve had a few but I feel like it comes with the territory and over the years I’ve learned to handle the homophobia but I’m outrageously thankful that it’s been mostly positive.’

The tengu mask emoji – sometimes called the Japanese goblin emoji – is based on a mythical creature from Japanese folk stories. It was often depicted as a cross between a canine or bird-like monster.

This is not the first time the LGBTI community took claim of an emoji. Last year a poster to Reddit pointed out that the ‘thinking’ emoji looked like someone signing the word lesbian.

Moms Mabley

With her toothless grin, floppy hat and tell-it-like-it-is persona, Moms Mabley may be one of the most influential comedians you don’t know. She rose to fame in the early decades of the 20th century on the chitlins circuit — the collection of stages around the country that employed black entertainers during segregation — and she would go on to a career that spanned more than 50 years. In that time, she pushed beyond racial and gender barriers, but she drew mainstream attention only starting in the 196os (she died in 1975) and little of her work has survived on film or video. That hasn’t deterred Whoopi Goldberg
