    is it like xim and xhem or something like that of being neutral pronouns? cause even if that is the case I still just go to they and them for neutral pronouns...no point in making up new words when we already have something that is neutral

    The idea is since latino is the masculine adjective and latina is the feminine adjective - latinx is the gender neutral form. It's an equality thing

    I didn't even know they where gendered to begin with much less the existence of the word latina...

    In spanish every noun has gender, so to refer to a male you say latino and a female latina - if you spoke spanish you would know. Even words like house have gender - romance languages are interesting.

    It's called grammatical gender. In spanish natural gender and grammatical gender exist. So house "casa" is feminine, and chicken "pollo" is masculine. Why does this system exist? Fuck who knows, but it even used to exist in english. The word "that" actually used to be the feminine form of the word "the".

    oh yeah i remember learning this in spanish class, most spanish nouns end in either "o" or "a", the whole thing is pretty confusing but it works out

    I think you misunderstood “gendered houses”

    that is...odd. why have 2 variants of a word for each gender when you could just use the same word...it's unnecessary complication of a language...

    no there isnt two variations for each word, each word has its own variation, like "casa" (house) is feminine. you cant say "caso"
