´Latinos´ is out, ´Latinx´ is in at
UC San Diego in nod to evolving
gender and sexuality terms

Los Angeles Times, by Gary Robbins

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/2/2018 7:51:12 PM

UC San Diego has begun using new words to refer to Latinos and Chicanos in a move that reflects the profound change that’s occurring nationally in the way many people define their gender and sexuality. The gender-specific terms Latino and Chicano are being selectively replaced with Latinx and Chicanx to promote acceptance of virtually anyone who falls under the headings. The change is being promoted by students, social justice activists and the LGBTQ community, which are trying to get people to look beyond conventional notions of gender, sex and appearance. As broadly used, Latino refers to people of Latin American

Comments:
A new term for us to embrace in Marxist USA: "Chicanx." I suggest the rest of us are "Whanx" for abiding this garbage.

But the very name of the university is "sexist" because "San" is masculine...as is "Diego". Brilliant!

Their mental aberrations appear to be operating in a form of ´resonance chamber´ where mental illness leads to greater mental illness. How long before these sad creatures (leftards) are observed standing catatonic about the campus, unable to allow themselves to process any aspect of reality and thus unable to move in this physical reality?

The proper, all inclusive, word was coined long ago;
American.
If you are something else, or place another thing in front of ´American´ using a hyphen, you don´t belong here and should go someplace where you won´t need a qualifier.

A poster boy for bail reform will miss out on meeting former President Barack Obama at a Manhattan gala awards ceremony Wednesday night — because he was busted during a traffic stop hours earlier. Pedro Hernandez was stopped while driving a BMW in the Bronx around noon Wednesday, cops said. A computer check revealed that the plates on the car were stolen and Hernandez’s driver’s license was suspended, and he was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and related charges, a law enforcement source said.

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus
