My friend: “Latino is literally all-inclusive. To change it to Latinx is not only counter-intuitive to the language, but offensive in trying to make a Spanish word fit English norms.”
We all know the Democrats and the left love to twist language and change definitions. I mean, we know they do not fit the definition of liberal or progressive.
We also know they have an obsession with gender-neutral language. English is not a gendered language unless talking about your biological sex. The language offers neutral language with “they,” “them,” “we,” “us,” and “it.”
Old English had gender grammar. It fell apart with Middle English.
The world has many gendered languages like Spanish. Since the Democrats and the left obviously know what is best for everyone they’ve tried to take over the Spanish language.
All nouns in Spanish have a gender. The masculine nouns end in “O” while the feminine nouns end in “A.” The masculine ending is the default ending. Words do not end in “X.”
We have Latino and Latina. A mixed-gender group of people is referred to as Latinos.
Well, despite the constant push from the left and the Democrats, a new poll from Bendixen & Amandi International showed Latinos do not care or find the word Latinx offensive and bothersome.
Bendixen & Amandi International is “a top Democratic firm specializing in Latino outreach.”
The company split the results into three groups: age, political party, and country of origin.
The vast majority of respondents chose Hispanic as the term closest to describing their ethnic background, including Democrats!
The company then asked the respondents if the term Latinx offends or bothers them. The people could answer “Yes, a lot,” “Yes, somewhat,” “Yes, a little,” “No, doesn’t bother me,” and “Don’t know/No answer.”
A combination of the yes questions added up to 40%. Yes, 40% of those polled find Latinx offensive or bothersome. But 57% of them said it doesn’t them.
Still, though, 40% is quite a bit. Pollster Fernand Armandi said: “The numbers suggest that using Latinx is a violation of the political Hippocratic Oath, which is to first do no electoral harm. Why are we using a word that is preferred by only 2 percent, but offends as many as 40 percent of those voters we want to win?”
Armandi pointed out the word Latinx is not the main reason why the Latino population has shifted to the right. He is correct. Republicans have made an incredible effort to reach out to the community. The situation on the border has not helped either.
My Mexican friend has been screaming about Latinx since it blew up. She tells me all the time it’s offensive. Today she told me: “Latino is literally all-inclusive. To change it to Latinx is not only counter intuitive to the language, but offensive in trying to make a Spanish word fit English norms.”
Joaquin Blaya, a founder of Univision and registered Democrat, said Latinx is not Spanish:
One of the founders of Univision, Joaquin Blaya, said they built the network around the concept of using the words Latino and, especially, Hispanic, because it reflected the Spanish language and united Spanish speakers from across Latin America. He said his objection to Latinx is that it’s “too weird. It’s dumb. It’s foreign. It’s not Spanish.”
“Democrats are helping Republicans make them look out of touch,” said Blaya, a registered Democrat. “We built a network around our Spanish language and we have a shared culture around it. Why are we trying to change this? It’s offensive to a lot of people.”
I wonder how the numbers would look if Bendixen & Amandi International polled people under the age of 18. It seems the younger generation has embraced Latinx.DONATE
