Me encanta. Love it. Although unfortunately the TRAS have managed to force gender neutrality, I see many people using x, i, or @ instead of the a/o. "Lxs chicxs" or "L@s chic@s" is often seen as an alternative to gendered language.

Lxs chicxs" or "L@s chic@s"

Wtf. I have no words. It’s almost fucking satire at this point.

They're also using it for people from the Philippines now, "Filipinx." I'm like hello, just call them Pinoy?

These mostly belong to super specific subcultures, though. I put them into some context in the post i wrote in response to anonymiss (or at least I tried to).

My observations only apply to Mexico, Colombia (inland part only), and the rioplatense area (Uruguay and about half of Argentina—basically pretty much "Buenos Aires and its discontents", as far as cultural diffusion goes; definitely not Patagonia and definitely not the indigenous-heavy north end of Argentina).
