I swear I only see non-Latinos using it. 

I understand it’s a gender neutral term but Spanish is not a gender neutral language. 

Masculine words are the default in Spanish. Latino, Latina, Latinos. That’s it. 

You could argue against it but that’s literally how the language is and I haven’t heard people complaining about it before. 

Sure it’s a product of a binary society but unless someone specifies they want to be called Latinx, I won’t be calling anyone that.

It's a catch all term for Latino, Latina, etc. 'x' is a placeholder.

Latinx is the gender-neutral/non-binary term compared to Latino or Latina. I’m not a fan of it because in Spanish Latinos is the default for pluralizing the word. I didn’t start seeing this until recently.

You don’t represent all latino/latinx people though

nor do your family or friends. Not trying to be snarky but that kind of generalization is old and tired. It’s just to be inclusive of people who may not identify a certain way.

It’s also kind of going against the machistas in the latino community. If y’all thought Toxic Masculinity was bad you should see how bad Masculinity is within traditional spanish households
