    It's basically the same as spelling woman as womyn or womxn.

    Basically stupid.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    It's not, he likes to try to annoy what he perceives to be the "woke white liberals" on this forum.

    As for the actual issue, some in the Latin American community (generally skewing younger) like the "Latinx" term and some (generally skewing older) don't. Many others don't care one way or the other. That's kind of typical of these sorts of changes and fine. Not everyone has to agree on this and those who prefer it can use it and those who don't, don't have to.

    There's a similar movement (less popular) for a Filipinx designation. Its just stupid cracker ass bullshit IMO.

    As our only known Filipinx poster, you should interview some of your Filipinx relatives and Filipinx associates, and let us know how feelings about Filipinx vary throughout the Filipinx community.

    Asia has the world's fair share of transgendered people...as does Polynesia.....in Hawaii they are called mahu's and have been in Hawaiian society for as long as there have been people on the islands....white people didn't invent this stuff....they just promoted it like many people on the net...there are stupid white people but dude they don't have a monopoly on stupid by any stretch...it's collective stupid you should pinpoint. Besides, unless you're planning to transition yourself...does it really matter at all what people identify as? If you like rap and hiphop you shouldn't Snoop Dog sounds a bit like Slypokerdog....point being...they have to live with the name, not me! Eminem sounds way to close to enema!
