Although the "Female" symbol (U+2640 ♀) is not IDNA2008 compliant, it
had been sold as a dot-COM some time ago - along with a few other
"emoji" dot-COM domains.

other resolvers I tried, but Google now immediately returns "status:
Anybody know why Google now returns "status: SERVFAIL" for ♀.com
(xn--e5h.com), but still works fine for ☮.com (xn--v4h.com)
The NS for xn--e5h.com are ...
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
xn--e5h.com. 172800 IN NS ns75.domaincontrol.com.
xn--e5h.com. 172800 IN NS ns76.domaincontrol.com.
and they are still working fine.
