Its BS, dont like the word, dont call me the word. In the spanish language we swapped latino and latina around without any issues for years and dont want it change for all bunch of people that might dont even speak spanish to begin with. Dont want to use it because its said "latino community" when in spanish it is "la communidad latina" lol. Maybe go do some research in america latina before you want to make a term and says that we are a bunch of sexist people just because it is latino community in english

@Dravin McRae no it doesn't cause that word doesn't exist in their language. Only Latino and Latina works.

@Dravin McRae X has power. Think Malcolm X. Latinx people dont just want a politician to show up in the community once every 4 years to speak a sentence in spanish with mariachi band in the background. They want to be at the seat of power.

@FlowerTower yeah i agree. I refered to the terms latino/a and hispanic, both words often used interchangeably but shouldnt be. Colorism in latinamerica def exists, no denying that. Mestizos are "white" in the sense that its predom euro culture being prefered by the status quo like u mentioned

@Steezy Mac Well it makes more sense to have Latine than Latinx. Just to have a word for Non Binary Latin people.

@Lychee Latine is a good gender neutral version of Latino, Latinx is not

Everyone: It's sexist to use latino because it's masculine! Half of the population is female!

Latin American women: Welcome to our Spanish and its rules, leave your colonialism and high horse view right there by the door because we don't want it.
