the sparkly heart emoji is in my mum's contact on my phone!! she is cool, she's an ex-goth who still wears heavy eyeliner every day, supports me, her bi autistic trans son (she isn't an Autism Mum(tm) tho thank goodness). her main loves in life are her cat, harry potter audiobooks, serial dramas and costa coffee. I hope this knowledge will help break your association of that emoji with certain people/things and instead make it a good and positive thing!!
Awww that’s awesome! :) I’m glad that’s worked to help out with that heart emoji. For me I’ve tried stuff like that but because it’s not explicitly tied to tumblr it doesn’t work as well to turn it good..if that makes sense.
I’ll get over it somehow :p
