    The letter X is cool. Math majors can't think without it. Every word should have one. Or at least work it into every sentence. Make it blatant, like Space-X. Or my favorite, se-x.

    I've always been more of a Bobcat fan myself.

    The X does feel like someone was trying too hard to be cutting edge and revolutionary.

    I understand the social movement toward reconstructing the language, but at the very least they could have ended it with an E instead seeing as how it is the most gender neutral vowel in the Spanish language and falls along with the consonant-vowel structure of syllables you see in so many of the words.

    Right idea, wrong execution. Though many people in Latin American cultures don’t want to move forward with any sort of change regarding this.

    ...and taking the link even further it states: Contrarily, it has been claimed that usage of the term "started in online chat rooms and listservs in the 1990s"
