WHAT’S THAT, OPRAH DIDN’T SOLVE ALL YOUR PROB­LEMS? WE’RE HERE TO HELP. I WANT TO GET MY BOYFRIEND SOME UN­DER­WEAR BE­CAUSE HE’S IN DIRE NEED OF SOME NEW PAIRS. ARE GUYS WEAR­ING BOX­ERS OR BRIEFS TH­ESE DAYS? JESS, VIA EMAIL GLAD YOU ASKED. WE POLLED GQ HQ, AND RE­SULTS ARE IN.

MY GIRL­FRIEND BLOODY LOVES EMO­JIS, BUT I’M NOT A FAN. DOES IT MAKE ME A SPOIL SPORT IF I TEXT WITH­OUT THEM? JA­COB, VIA EMAIL

Here’s the thing, Ja­cob: you are a spoilt sport. It’s 2016 and Emoji is an of­fi­cial lan­guage in its own right. Shun­ning the shy mon­key or danc­ing twins does not make you a brave cru­sader for ‘proper’ com­mu­ni­ca­tion. It makes you the Amer­i­can tourist vis­it­ing Mcdon­ald’s in Paris, with a ‘Trump for Pres­i­dent’ cap on and an ob­nox­iously-large cam­era around your neck, shout­ing too loudly for ex­tra FRIES. They call them frites, you im­be­cile. Plus, there’s a taco emoji now, so there’s lit­er­ally no rea­son to avoid them.
