Letter: Don’t use ‘Latinx’


Letter writer Xavier Rodriguez urges the Iowa State Daily to not use the term “Latinx.”

Xavier Rodriguez

Latinx is a term that is not used or even liked by the overwhelming majority of all Latino households. It’s a term that’s promoted by white academics, white media and young Latinos pushing gender politics. But it’s not a term used or even liked by the U.S. Latino or any other Central or South American community as well… certainly also not in Spain. Please stop using it. It’s disrespectful to the wishes of most in my community.
