Oscar: What is this about?
Michael: Oscar, we once sucked face in public. As part of an office presentation to destroy the stigma of gay kissing. Do you recall?
Oscar: Yes!
Michael: You may have given me a sexually transmitted disease.
Oscar: What?
Michael: Herpes duplex.
Dwight: It was probably just an ingrown mustache hair but we have to be exhaustive.
Michael: I have already contacted all of my ex-lovers except for you.
Oscar: We were never lovers!
Dwight: I'm gonna need a list of every man you've ever had sex with. I'm talking train stations, men's rooms...
Michael: Flower shops, fireworks celebrations...
Dwight: Fence with a hole in it..
Michael: Moolit Gandala, carrage drive through Central Park...
Dwight: The woods behind the liquor store, the swamp behind the old folk's home.

I read the article and I'm wondering what the heck is a "Latinx community?"

La·tin·x

/ˌlaˈtēˌneks,ləˈtēˌneks/ North American noun

noun: Latinx; plural noun: Latinxs; plural noun: Latinx
a person of Latin American origin or descent
(used as a gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino or Latina)

,,,
gender-neutral or nonbinary?  people actually talk like this now?

/ death's too good for them

How big is that rock you've been under? The     -x has been around for about 2 years now... in fact it has already popped up, become memed then become passe', so its life cycle is officially over... .

(I thought it dumb too).

You do realize that English is mostly gender-neutral, right?  The vast majority of nouns have no gender.  And most demonyms are gender-neutral.  While a really clunky construction, it is proper English.

Also, if you don't know what non-binary is, you need to (1) get out more, or (2) never ever leave your sister-wife compound.

How else do you resolve gendered nouns when dealing with a mixed gender group?

Do you call a room that is 50% male and 50% women a group of men?  A group of women?  A group of men and women?  Or a group of people?

If you haven't through about that at all, congratulations you suck at English.

And yes I know that it hurts your sensibilities.

IF you want to off yourself, I'm not going to stop you.  I don't particular want you to, but you do you.

I have seen Mr. Apollo
Uproot trees with his bare hands
I have seen Mr. Apollo's
Body building plans

He's the strongest man
The world has ever seen
And if you take his courses
He'll make you big and rough

Oh! And you can beat up bullies 'til they cry
"Oh lah! Oh, crikey! Let go, you rotter! Don't punish me!"
