There’s also male and female rock climbers and yogis, you know, for people who have their shit together enough to do both of those activities. There’s also a man and woman in a steam room, but I will be using that one, in fact, to tell my husband I ate cereal in the shower.

Now what are the odds Emojipedia adds this delightful “The Rock” inspired face?
