The Clemente Solution To The "Latinx" Problem
Print Friendly and PDF

The Spanish language doesn’t have neuter nouns, which drives Woke Anglos crazy: thus, they concoct ghastly neologisms like “Latinx.”

It’s not our business to solve this problem that Anglos perceive in the Spanish language. Fortunately, in English we have a perfectly good neuter noun/adjective, which was widely used in baseball not long ago.

“Latin” was good enough for outfielder Roberto Clemente, who died a hero on New Year’s Eve 1972 flying emergency supplies to earthquake-wrecked Nicaragua. So it ought to be good enough for the rest of us.
