Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Claims Both ‘Gender and Language Are Fluid’
'People sometimes like to make a lot of drama over the term ‘Latinx'
Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has claimed both gender and language are “fluid,” while discussing “gender inclusivity in Spanish language,” and defedning the use of the terms “Latinx” and “Latine.”
“Also in the spirit of pride, I wanted to have a note on gender inclusivity in Spanish language,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a video posted as an Instagram story, taking issue with those who find “gender-neutral” terms such as “Latinx” as problematic.
“People sometimes like to make a lot of drama over the term ‘Latinx,'” she said, asserting that people were attempting to find other “gender-neutral” terms prior to “Latinx.”
“Gender is fluid. Language is fluid,” she stated definitively.
“And I think people right now are using the ‘e’ term as gender neutral in order to be as inclusive as possible," she said.
"Don’t have to make drama over it.”
The New York congresswoman then delved into a “mini rant” on this same subject, addressing critics, including some Democrat politicians.
“There are some politicians, including Democratic politicians, that rail against the term ‘Latinx.’ And they’re like, ‘This is so bad. This is so bad for the party,’ like blah blah blah,” she began, accusing them of being fundamentally selfish for thinking that way.
“And like, it’s almost as though it has not struck some of these folks that another person’s identity is not about your reelection prospects. Like this is not about you,” she said.
“Second of all, if putting a little ‘x’ on your campaign literature is what you think is the difference between winning or losing an election, you need to talk about health care more. You need to raise people’s wages. You need to talk about more issues that also matter to people,” she said, explaining why she believes some people are opting to use the term “Latine” over “Latinx.”
“‘Latinx’ can be convenient in written form because you just put down an ‘x,’ and people can kind of mentally put in whatever vowel they identify with,” she said.
“So ‘Latine,’ you avoid the masculine ‘o.’ You avoid the feminine ‘a.’
“‘Lainte,'” she added, the “‘e’ is a little more neutral, so it can be more inclusive to people.”
“For people who enjoy trying to figure out language and have it meet the modern age, that’s kind of where it’s at,” she continued.
This is far from the only term the left has attempted to hijack for the sake of woke ideology.
For years, transgender activists have tried to redefine “women” as “womxn,” further dismissing the biological realities that differentiate men from women.
