The word “Latinx has emerged as an inclusive term to refer to people of Latin American descent, encompassing those who don’t identify as male or female or who don’t want to be identified by their gender. It’s been used by journalists, politicians, corporations, colleges and universities. In 2018, it even made it to the dictionary. But among the people ‘Latinx’ is intended to describe, few have heard of the term — let alone use it. In a new survey, researchers found that only about one in four adults in the US who identify as Hispanic or Latino have heard the term ‘Latinx,’ while just 3% say they use it to describe themselves.” (This doesn’t seem that unusual in the internet age. I get called all kinds of names I’ve never heard before…)
