Usage notes[edit]

  • Latinx is used as a gender-neutral alternative to Latino and Latina, including in the plural (where Latinxs can replace long phrases like Latinos and Latinas, or the use of Latinos alone to refer to mixed-gender group, which some feminists dislike), by younger Hispanic people, and by non-binary Hispanic people.[1][2][3] Some Hispanic people object to Latinx, however, considering it too English and too little used in Spanish, or disliking its gender-neutrality.[3] One poll of 508 people found that only 2% chose the term as the one term that best described them.[4] A few speakers use Latine (using the vowel e that is midway between -o and -a) as an alternative, saying it is more pronounceable in Spanish.[5]
