We Regret to Inform You White Leftists Are at It Again: 'Gender Neutral' Latine to Replace Latinx

Twitchy

Ah, white leftists. Can't live with them, can't ship them off to Antarctica.

But we can mock them. They have been trying to make 'Latinx' a thing for a while now, despite it being wildly unpopular with the Latino community -- whose language and culture are very much gendered (and not 57 varieties, either).

But since Latinx didn't seem to get much traction, they've rebranded their bigotry and white saviourism into a new word: Latine.

Run with that. Good luck.

Axios tells us why it's so important:


"Latine," a gender-neutral way to describe or refer to people with Latino origins, is surging in popularity on university campuses, in museums, and among researchers and media.

The big picture: Catch-all terms like Hispanic or Latino have come under scrutiny for blurring important nuances and presenting a large part of the U.S. population as a monolith.


  • Latine is "part of a movement centered on wanting to build and foster an inclusive community," says Carlos Zavala, vice president at consulting firm Whiteboard Advisors, which has used the term in reports from its work with tech and education groups.
  • 41% of U.S. Latinos in the latest Axios-Ipsos Latino poll in partnership with Noticias Telemundo say they are comfortable with Latine.

Flashback: The increased use of Latine comes as Latinx has been phased out by some organizations or banned by officials.

  • Latinx had been pushed by U.S. academics as a gender-neutral option for Latinos but was criticized for using the letter "x" in a manner that's unnatural to Spanish speakers.

The buried lede here is a majority of Latinos are not comfortable with it.

They think they know better than those brown people with their gendered languages, apparently.

Imagine if any group other than white leftists tried this.

White leftists would be outraged.

Perfection.

Anyone who says this without mocking it deserves it, though.

BUT 41% of their poll respondents liked it!

No, it won't be.

Stop trying to colonize Latino culture, leftists.

A terrible word.

Can't do that. Not virtue signal-y enough.

AWFLs who like to show how woke they are.

They're anything but normal.

Let us know how that goes.

And they think they're the good guys here.

It's (D)ifferent when they do it.

But they know better!

Whether or not they like it, apparently.

It's working out so well.

A safe bet.

This is just like rebranding 'global warming' to 'climate change' after people realized Gaia didn't have a fever.
