Would you identify as having a dirty mind or are you simply wanting to keep your kids out of trouble? Either way, Instagram recently announced that they will be adding emoji hashtags if you're really wanting to search for more of the same but they're barring the eggplant from this service, Gizmodo has reported.

The aubergine is apparently too much like a phallus to be respected and therefore must be chopped. It's said that not only does this look a little like male genitalia, youth of today are using this hashtag as a way to represent such things (I have never felt as old in my life as I did writing that sentence).

The banana and corn emoji's are still running wild alongside the peach, dripping needle and more. If you're an activist and looking for a change, finding other minded people in regards to this issue will be hard however as we already mentioned it's not searchable.
