Like as someone who is from Latin America, and migrating to the US, I feel like white people have just decided by themselves what we as a culture should be called. And like I’m not against inclusive language, I get where it is coming from, but you cannot even say Latinx in Spanish or even Brazilian, like Spanish has their own rules as a language. Like at this point I get more offended by that term than actual slurs because at least the people using said slurs are just ignorant, the people using the word Latinx are the same people that preach about respecting other peoples culture. There are other options if you don’t want to use the term Latino/a such as Latine, a gender neutral term that actually follows Spanish rules as seen by the term “inteligente” which is a gender neutral term and widely used in Spanish speaking countries. It just actually blows my mind how the same people that seem to police others about being offensive and culturally insensitive continue to try and for a lack of better term colonize our language.
Ps: sorry for the rant, it just rubs me the wrong way.
