“Latinx” is among the most cringe inducing descriptor terms and I may not be able to take the people who use it unironically seriously.

I haven't heard that one - to what does it refer?

It’s supposed to be a gender neutral form of “Latino/Latina” because certainly people consider Spanish to be a sexist language due to pronoun tenses and the like. What bothers me the most is that the x is  supposed to be pronounced as an x, which makes it sound like cough medicine. It’s also somewhat redundant given that “Hispanic” fills its role (unless connotations of colonialism immediately come into your mind).

So if I'm talking about a hot Spanish chick, I have to refer to her as LatinX?

Depending on if she uses that descriptor. It seems to mostly be an American thing from what I can tell but it’s become widespread enough to be used in NPR and get into the Oxford dictionary.

I suppose if someone were to politely ask me to use it in reference to them I would use it out of common decency, but as it stands I find it to be rather ridiculous.

I'd probably tell them to fuck off

Rey is a Mary Sue but she is still a compelling character in spite of it.

So was Luke - she's basically just the female version of him tbh...
