    Do the French get a California friendly gender-neutral language modification too? Françaisx?

    Stop with the term "Latinx" .......there is not one person in my hispanic or Latino community that was in need of a gender neutral term. Its another case of fixing an issue for a minority group by those outside of it that wasnt asked for or needed.

    I’m in Oklahoma,
    I have never heard that term used.
    I’ve never even heard the word. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I want to live with you 😁

    I got my beard caught in my jacket zipper. That was fairly irksome.

    Mental picture is kinda funny though 😁 Did you lose any beard?

    A little, but I have plenty to spare.

    So far, French does not officially recognize gender neutral language. But then again, there are fancy jacket type people behind closed doors somewhere in France who - to this day - still sit around and decide which French words can stay or go. That said, "l’écriture inclusive" is a contemporary discussion that's been around before I was born.

    For better or for worse, not every language is as fluid/flexible as English.

    Started it because I got sick of shaving. Now I'm getting a bit sick of having the beard. Might shave it off before Christmas.

    If you are where its cold for Christmas you might need the extra warmth.. better than a scarf maybe.

    People freaking chewing. And it makes that crunching sound, and it’s dead silent in the room. And they just sit there and CHEW, I have to leave the room....UHGHGH you have no clue how mad I get. JUST CHEW QUIETER. OH MY GOSHHH!!! 😵😤

    Yes! I hate that cows/pigs chewing sound!🤢🙉

    It really bothers me when I ask the massage therapist to push harder and they huff and puff but the pressure doesn’t change. That was today!🙄 Two weeks ago I had a good one! I hurt the next couple of days but it feels good!😅 Unfortunately for me this therapist is booked weeks in advance!☹️

    A girl I watch on YouTube sometimes just posted a video. It’s confusing to know what is even considered “proper”.

    Hispanic=People with origins in Spanish speaking countries in Latin America including Spain and excluding Brazil
    Latino=More geographical based like South America/The Caribbean and not Spain since it’s in Europe


    What are we supposed to say these days? It’s hard to keep up. Does it matter?

    I spend 90% of my days with other Hispanics and Latinos. Whether its politi ally correct or not how we figure it is if you speak Spanish you are Hispanic, if you speak Portuguese like the Brazilians do you are Latino. But the only one using Latinx is media and the "educated". Now im sure there may be others that use the term, but i live in NY and its a pretty diverse place and i see nobody using the term that may actually fit the bill. So many outside looking to help the "less fortunate minorities" think they need to stick their noses in and fix things how they think it should be. Let me tell you something, we need to be treated fairly and thats it. We dont need any handouts and we sure as hell dont need help in fixing our language.

    I wasn’t saying you did. I was just curious if anything is considered offensive or more proper than the other. I’ve always thought I was being proper by saying “Hispanic” but was wondering if maybe I had been wrong. Sounds like it’s fine.

    Nah, its just words. Words are harmless, intent behind words is all that matters. If you say something wrong i know you as a sweet person, there should be no offense taken. If someone chooses to correct you thats ok too......but to get offended, thats just zomeone looking for trouble.

    Thank you.❤️

    When you're shopping online and you're 3.00 away from free shipping and you can't find anything under 20.00 so you just keep shopping and suddenly that 50.00 spree turns into 100.00 but you feel like you just won at life because free shipping

    This could double as a “I won at this today” post🙌🏽❤️

    I used to buy all my clothes at Macy's. They always had coupons like, "get $10 off a $50 purchase".
    I really appreciated that they had little $3 Godiva chocolate bars right at the checkout counter in case you needed a few extra dollars to get you there.

    So. Freakin'. Relatable.

    (I'm looking at you, Walmart, and your being $.52 or whatever away from the $35.00 minimum.)

    Edited because wth was up with my grammar?

    Dis me.

    I loathe paying for shipping that.much.

    Or I'll go to the opposite end of the spectrum and wait until there's a sale PLUS free shipping.
    At which point everything I wanted is sold out.
