Reading J. Kb’s post:
First of all, Latin people pretty much hate the term Latinx. Spanish is a gendered language and trying to make it gender neutral by putting an “x” on the end isn’t Spanish. It’s what woke white people do to make themselves seem woke and inclusive when really they are bastardizing a foreign language. He identified the Latin woman as a women, so the correct word would be Latina. That he still chose to use the Latinx is proof positive that this person is a preening woke douche bag.
Let me clear one thing for the non-Spanish speakers which include a lot of Latinexes pendejos who were raised in homes where Spanish was not the everyday language. There are three grammatical genders in the Spanish language: Masculine, Feminine and Neutral. That means we have words and phraseology that are considered male, female, genderless or are used to encompass both male and female.
It is perhaps one of the most confusing parts of the language. What determines masculinity and femininity in a word or expression can be done via rules or usage but once is settled, it pretty much stays forever. Now, the words Latino and Latina have been brought as excuse to come up with the BS Latinx, but let’s get one thing out-of-the-way: No person of the Spanish Language persuasion would have written Latinx but rather Latinex. If there is a vowel sound, we write it down, specially when it comes combined with the “x” which is one of the least used letters in the language. Trying to pronounce latinx in Spanish sounds like you are trying to dislodge a ball of bloody mucus from your throat.
Now back to Latino/Latina. There are several things that determine the gender in the Spanish language and we simply do not have the time to go over, as not many would understand when those of us raised in the language still can’t. But one of the things you learn is that there are words that can be both applied to a specific gender or to be gender neutral and one of those words is (surprise!) latino.
So when you have a woke moron using the word Latinx to encompass both genders under the excuse of neutrality, slap him. He is an ignorant asshole trying to look woke cool to the rest of the freshman girlies. Slap twice and catapult* across the southern borders if the offender is from the Latino heritage and tell him not to come back till he has learned the language according to the rules of the Academia De La Lengua Española.
So, Latino is the proper term for both male and female in Spanish. Use it in good grammar and health.
