Question of the Week: A recent poll from the nonpartisan Pew Research Center asked people what they thought of the term Latinx to describe people of Latin American descent in the United States. Other similarly gender-neutral variants have been Latin@s and Latines. According to the poll, the term has been accepted by only 3% of Latinos in the United States. Of those polled, 33% said it should be used to define the Hispanic or Latino population while 65% said it should not be used.

“Identity terms come and go. Hispanic is from the ’70s, Latino is from the ’90s, and Latinx is a more recent term, and it’s possible that its use could rise,” said Mark Hugo Lopez, one of the authors of the study. “But one thing that is happening worldwide is a growing number of conversations around gender-neutral language, and we see similar movements here.”

We want to know what you think. Should the term Latinx be used to describe the Latino population or not? Tell us below. All results are anonymous.
