There's nothing wrong with designing new glyphs covering pronouns in 
response to a lament about their lack in emoji made at a conference 
several years back.  Although met with skepticism on this list (and 
elsewhere), there's always a possibility that emoji users might welcome 
pronoun coverage.

The way to find out is to float a proposal.  Here's the guidelines:

This forum would be a good place to discuss anything unclear in the 
guidelines as well as to ask questions regarding any feedback generated 
further on down the line.  Glyph design and so forth is mostly off-topic 
here.  And since we already know that many people find pronouns useful, 
there would be no need to discuss their potential usefulness here.

Good luck!
