New Poll Shows Latinos Reject The Left's Bastardized Gender Neutral Language

In their ever-growing desire to change the way you think, speak, and act, progressives have begun referring to the Hispanic community at large as "Latinx" rather than Latino. This descriptor takes away the gendered language of the traditional terms "Latino" and "Latina," which leftists argue is discriminatory and patriarchal. These liberals have insisted not only should white Americans not use those male and female titles, but that most "Latinx" prefer the gender neutral version instead. Well, a new poll from ThinkNow Research promptly rejects that notion. According to the progressives group, just two percent of Latinos use the term Latinx to describe themselves.


Here are the details from ThinkNow founder Mario Carrasco:

We presented our respondents with seven of the most common terms used to describe Latinos and asked them to select the one that best describes them. When it came to “Latinx,” there was near unanimity. Despite its usage by academics and cultural influencers, 98% of Latinos prefer other terms to describe their ethnicity. Only 2% of our respondents said the label accurately describes them, making it the least popular ethnic label among Latinos.

The majority of those polled preferred being called Hispanic or Latino. Carrasco opines that "It is unclear whether 'Latinx' is just a fad or an ethnic label that is here to stay." 

"Given the very small number of people who identify with the term, I would advise my colleagues across the various marketing, human resources, journalism and communication disciplines to avoid using "Latinx" as a descriptor for all Latinos," Carrasco advises. 

Indeed, perhaps presidential campaigns like Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts should stop using the phrase in order to curry favor with Latino voters.


As for why this trend started, the Washington Examiner's Park MacDougald poses one theory. "because some ivy league kids got radicalized by social media like 4-5 years ago into thinking that abolishing the gender binary was the next big thing and figured hey maybe we can conscript latinos into this fight bc its all the same thing bc intersectionality" he tweeted.
